+  2018 Countdown Honorable Mention: The Fourth Cup (2 segments)

  • Description: Next week we’ll begin our annual countdown of the year’s top interviews and commentaries, and today we have a special bonus: Scott Hahn’s discussion on the Fourth Cup. The Jewish celebration of Passover uses four cups of wine at four specific parts of the celebration, and each have special significance. New Testament scholars see this reflected in the Gospel narratives of the Last Supper and the parallels between the Third Cup of Passover and the cup passed by Christ. But what about the fourth cup of Passover? Unlocking the answer will bring a whole new understanding to the Mass. Dr Scott Hahn joins us.

    • The Fourth Cup: Unveiling the Mystery of the Last Supper and the Cross

      A must read for Lent and Easter! From the bestselling author of The Lamb's Supper and Signs of Life comes an illuminating work on the Catholic Eucharist and its link to the Jewish Passover meal. In this brilliant book—part memoir, part detective story, and part biblical study—Scott Hahn opens up new vistas on ancient landscapes while shedding light on his own enduring faith journey. Simultaneously a prequel and a continuation of his bestselling The Lamb’s Supper, The Fourth Cup not only tracks the author’s gradual conversion along the path of Evangelicalism to the doorsteps of the Catholic faith, but also explores the often obscure and misunderstood rituals of Passover and their importance in foreshadowing salvation in Jesus Christ. Revealing the story of his formative years as an often hot-headed student and earnest seeker in search of answers to great biblical mysteries, Hahn shows how his ardent exploration of the Bible’s Old Testament turned up intriguing clues connecting the Last Supper and Christ’s death on Calvary. As Hahn tells the story of his discovery of the supreme importance of the Passover in God’s plan of salvation, we too experience often-overlooked relationships between Abel, Abraham, and the Hebrews’ liberation from slavery in Egypt. Along the way, Hahn reveals how the traditional fourth cup of wine used in the concluding celebration of Passover explains in astonishing ways Christ’s paschal sacrifice. Rooted in Scripture and ingrained with lively history, The Fourth Cup delivers a fascinating view of the bridges that span old and new covenants, and celebrates the importance of the Jewish faith in understanding more fully Christ’s life, death, and resurrection.
