Jesus and the Jewish Roots of MARY: Unveiling the Mother of the Messiah

Dr. Brant Pitre

From best-selling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist Dr. Brant Pitre comes this new book examining the Blessed Virgin Mary in a whole new way.


Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Pitre uses his familiar voice to answer important questions about the Biblical understanding of Mary and the Church's teaching on her. This book will explore questions like:

– Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the "traditions of men"?
– Should she be called the "Mother of God," or just the mother of Jesus?
– Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the "brothers of Jesus" refer to her other children?
– By praying to Mary, are Catholics worshipping her?
– And what does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?

In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.

Praise for Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary

This book is vintage Brant Pitre: clear, persuasive, readable, and above all, inspiring. It causes us not only to know more about the Mother of God, but also to love her more.
– Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles and author of To Light a Fire on the Earth


I did not think a single book could be written about Mary that would excite and unite Catholic and Protestant readers - scholars, clergy and laity alike. What Pitre does with the Bible and Marian typology is clear and compelling. A joy to read, this is the best biblical study of Mary I have ever read. A true masterpiece.
– Dr. Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb's Supper and The Fourth Cup


Brant Pitre takes important theological truths and makes them not only interesting, but exciting. This book will revolutionize your understanding of the most important woman in history.
– Jennifer Fulwiler, author of One Beautiful Dream


Combining rich Biblical scholarship with an engaging, easy-to-read style, this highly accessible book offers a fresh look at Mary in the Bible. Pitre clearly and convincingly shows that the Bible reveals much more about Jesus’ mother than is commonly appreciated today. A must read for every Christian who takes the Bible seriously and is open to what God’s Word has to say about Mary.
– Dr. Edward Sri, author of Walking With Mary

Advent: Rethinking the Season

Advent: Rethinking the Season

Advent is an odd season. Unlike most other seasons, it’s a season that isn’t about itself, but is instead about preparing for Christmas. But that reality often gets lost in the shuffle and stress of trying to find all the right gifts, decorations, and dinner ingredients. In this talk, Dr. Tim Gray uses storytelling and the readings of the Old Testament to explain that we need to live the ‘pre-season’ of Advent well, so we can be prepared to welcome and receive the greatest gift God the Father wants to give us at Christmas: His Son, Jesus.

 

“Dr. Gray has an engaging way of teaching, with great stories and analogies. He makes the readings from Isaiah and the Old Testament really come alive, no matter the liturgical year. I learned so much about Advent from this talk.”

I loved this talk. I listened to all of them at once (at Epiphany) but learned so much and was called yet again to reflect on myself and if I am truly preparing myself as best I can for the 2nd Coming for Christ. I loved the Christmas homily too which really made me think about the Nativity story not just as 'Oh the Christmas story of Christ's birth' but this is what this story shows of God's wonder and mystery!
