Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on December 17, 2018
2018 Countdown Day 1
4:00 – #35: A Catholic Introduction to the Old Testament (Pt 1)
Although many Catholics are familiar with the four Gospels and other writings of the New Testament, for most, reading the Old Testament is like walking into a foreign land. Who wrote these forty-six books? What are we to make of their laws, stories, histories, and prophecies? Should the Old Testament be read by itself or in light of the New Testament? We begin to take a look at the answers with Brant Pitre.
5:00 – #34: A Catholic Introduction to the Old Testament (Pt 2)
The Catholic content of the Old Testament is far too rich and complex to understand in a year of study, much less a one-hour interview. Nevertheless we’ll continue our look at the topic, this time with John Bergsma.
