Update, Apr 5, 2020: Fixed some broken links, separated the free audio courses from the other free courses.
Note: Dr. Scott Hahn has two sites that I know of: St Paul Center for Biblical Theology and his personal site. My site is not in any way affiliated with his and I don’t have a way to get messages to him. I’m just another fan.
Free Online Audio Courses from the St. Paul Center
- John, the Sacramental Gospel, a series of 6 audio lessons (MP3′s). I’ve been listening to it in the car and it’s really really good! The Bible is the Catholic book par excellence. Don’t let anybody tell you anything different!
- The Splendor of the Church: This course “examines the Church in the Pauline and Johannine writings and in the Synoptic Gospels. All of this is contained in this nine-part series taught by Dr. Scott Hahn, Dr. Brant Pitre and Dr. John Bergsma at St. Vincent’s Seminary in Latrobe, PA in 2008. They unpack for us some of the vast riches of the Church found in the New Testament.”
- Proclaiming the Kingdom: The Gospel of Matthew: “Sometimes called ‘the Gospel of the Kingdom’ because of its central theme, Matthew was the most often quoted of the four gospels in the writings of the early Church Fathers.”
- Romans: The Gospel According to Saint Paul: “A Nine Lesson Audio Bible Study Course: An engaging, informative, and thought-provoking nine lecture series by Center President Dr. Scott Hahn, as well as Center Fellows Dr. John Bergsma and Dr. Brant Pitre, they will walk you chapter by chapter through the biblical book that most scholars consider Paul’s greatest theological masterpiece. Along the way, you’ll come to a deeper understanding of the Church’s teachings on justification, faith and works, spiritual fatherhood, the role of Israel in salvation history, baptism, the dignity of the body, the life of charity, and more.”
Other Free Online Bible Study Courses at the Saint Paul Center
- Covenant Love: Introducing the Biblical Worldview: “‘Covenant’ is the master concept that unlocks the meaning of the Bible. The Bible tells the story of God the Father’s love for His children and His plan to fashion all people into one holy family. God unfolds this plan of salvation through a series of covenants, culminating in the New Covenant He makes in Jesus.”
- Genesis to Jesus is now God’s Covenant Plan: “What is the Bible, where does it come from and what is its purpose? How are Catholics supposed to read the Bible and what story does it have to tell? These are the questions we take up in this “big picture” survey course.”
- The Lamb’s Supper: The Bible and the Mass: “In this course we explore the intimate and inseparable relationship between the Bible and the Mass. Following an overview of the Eucharist in the New Testament, we look at the deep roots of the Mass in the biblical history of sacrifice – a history that culminates with the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist.”
- He Must Reign: The Kingdom of God in Scripture: “The drama in the Gospels turns on a single question: Is Jesus the long awaited Messiah, the son of David come to restore the everlasting monarchy promised to David? Underlying this drama are centuries of rival interpretations of the Jewish Scriptures and competing expectations of who the Messiah was to be, the signs that would accompany his coming, and the shape of the kingdom he would establish.”
- Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God: “The Mother of Jesus is mentioned only about a dozen times in the New Testament. So why is Mary so important to Catholic faith and devotion? As we’ll see in this in-depth study, Mary is a key gateway into salvation history. The Bible portrays Mary as the all-holy one who gave the Word flesh, the Mother of God, and the spiritual mother of all who live by faith in her Son.”
- Reading the Old Testament in the New: The Gospel of Matthew: “How did the New Testament writers read the Old Testament in light of the coming of Jesus Christ? This course offers an in-depth answer to that question, focusing on the use of the Old Testament in the Gospel of Matthew.”
- Feasts of Faith: The Old Testament Feasts and Their Fulfillment in Christ.
- The Gospel of Mark: “St. Mark paints a portrait of Jesus that is vivid, dynamic and focused on His miracles and His divine Sonship. But, unlike the other Gospels, the structure of Mark defies easy definition. In this five part series, Dr. Scott Hahn reveals the hidden themes that St. Mark employed, like a master composer, to orchestrate his magnificent work.”
Note, Jan 27, 2020: I received word that the Corinthians audio Bible study was no longer available at the St Paul Center site (Thanks, Joseph!). After checking into it, seems they’ve removed it, so I deleted the link.
If you find any broken links, etc., anywhere on the site, please let me know. Thanks. And thanks for reading. God bless!
