John Bergsma examines the Biblical roots of the Priesthood.


Holy Thursday and the Old Testament Roots of the Priesthood

On Holy Thursday we commemorate the first Mass, recognizing Jesus as our Great High Priest. But did Jesus intend for the priesthood to continue, or was it merely a feature of the Old Covenant? John Bergsma joins us with a look at the roots of the priesthood.

John Bergsma is Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. He’s the author most recently of Jesus and the Old Testament Roots of the Priesthood and is also the co-author with Brant Pitre of A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: Old Testament. Dr. Bergsma speaks regularly for parish missions, diocesan conferences, clergy convocations, and other events nationally and internationally.
