Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist - Book

Dr. Brant Pitre

"Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus' purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, "This is my body... This is my blood"?

Pages: 228
Book Dimensions: 5.25" x 8"

To answer these questions, Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys-the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence-have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday

Inspiring and informative, "Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" is a groundbreaking work that is sure to illuminate one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith: the mystery of Jesus' presence in "the breaking of the bread."

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist. By taking us back to the Jewish roots of our faith, Dr. Pitre gives us a powerful lens through which to see anew the bread of the presence, the manna, the Last Supper, and ultimately the meaning of the Eucharist.

Meet Your Mother - Book

Meet Your Mother - Book

MARIAN THEOLOGY MADE EASY! 

Ever wonder why so many people pay so much attention to Mary, the Mother of Jesus? From the most ancient traditions of Mary in Christianity to the “Hail Mary” pass in American football, the Mother of Jesus has pervaded most world cultures for the last two thousand years. 

But could the Mother of Jesus also be your mother? 

 

Dr. Mark Miravalle gave astounding information regarding our Blessed Mother. Having been just received into the Catholic Church this past Easter Vigil (2014), and having taken her name, Maria, as my Confirmation name, I am overjoyed at how much there is to know about her. This information, given so intelligently and clearly by Dr. Miravalle, has served to affirm the recent powerful answers that I have personally received as a result of my petitions to the Blessed Mother. I also appreciated his specific encouragements, the suggestions of prayers, Novenas, and even petitions to the Pope, on behalf of world peace through consecration to Mary. He helped to make her more real to me. Francesca - Stone Ridge, NY
