+JMJ+ Greetings! The Story of Salvation series will be back after the Easter season. This will be a brief post tonight. I want to share a video I found while doing some research on a couple of writing projects (and, yes, the ebooks are coming along, too, slowly, more about that later). With some regularity I am confronted by people who reject Catholicism for one reason or another so when I stumble across a video that pertains to their questions (or accusations), I save them. And since I find them to be helpful in answering non-Catholic objections but also in fostering my own understanding, I think somebody else out there might find them helpful, too.
One of the objections I most often hear is the subject of the priesthood. I’m sure that my fellow Catholics run into this same objection, so I’m sharing this video, Priesthood in the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls, which is related to the Catholic Book of the Month for April, also by Dr. John Bergsma. See notes below.
Dr. Bergsma looks at the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls to see if there is justification for the Catholic priesthood. What does “binding and loosing” mean?
From the description of Priesthood in the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls, a video by Dr. John Bergsma.
I have several of his videos on my watch later list, including this one, his conversion story on Marcus Grodi’s The Journey Home on EWTN.
Well, I said it was going to be a brief post. And so it is. Thank you for visiting and reading. I hope you’ll join me again. Until next time, whoever and wherever you are, stay safe and well, virtuous and holy, and focused on the Easter season of joyful hope in the Resurrection, awaiting the descent of the Holy Spirit into your heart, and become who you were meant to be: a saint! May the Lord bless and keep you and yours, and may His peace be always with you. +JMJ+
