    When it comes to the Catholic Church in our time, perhaps the most frequently asked question is: "Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest?" It is often followed by two others: "Why can't I just go straight to God? Where is the sacrament of confession in the Bible?"

    In Why We Confess, Dr. Brant Pitre gives an eye-opening Bible study on the origins and meaning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, commonly known as "Confession." In this two-part Bible Study, you will learn about:

    • The Fall of Adam and Eve and the First "Confession"
    • Confession of Sins to a Priest in the Old Testament
    • John's Baptism of Repentance and Confession of Sins
    • The link between Jesus' Miraculous Healings and the Sacrament of Reconciliation
    • The Parable of the Prodigal Son
    • When Jesus Gave the Apostles the Power to Absolve and Retain Sins
    • The Practice of Confession in the Early Church

    Many of us know Catholics who haven't been to Confession in years, even decades. Maybe you are one of them. Whoever you are -- if you've ever wondered about the biblical roots of this sacrament, then Why We Confess is the Bible Study for you.

    As you'll discover, Jesus was (quite literally) dying to institute the sacrament of Confession as an essential part of God's plan for "reconciling the world to himself" (2 Corinthians 5:19).

As always, Brant Pitte delivers a clear and compelling explanation of the sacrament, going back to its Old Trstament roots, and including early church practices. It’s very instructive even for a cradle Catholic. Great teaching tool for all.
