Free Video: Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist


Download video and PDF outline here.

I cannot recommend presentations by Dr. Pitre enough. If you enjoy this and want to hear more, go to the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology and take advantage of the free audio presentations available. Dr. Pitre is featured in several of them. If you do not enjoy this, go there and listen to more anyway.

More resources featuring Dr. Pitre are found Here

Dr. Brant Pitre is a Professor of Sacred Scripture at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, Louisiana. He received his Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame, where he specialized in study of the New Testament and ancient Judaism.

In this presentation, you will explore the Eucharist as the New Passover, the New Manna from Heaven, and the mysterious New ‘Bread of the Presence.’ If you are looking to deepen your faith in and understanding of the inexhaustible treasure that is the Eucharist, then this talk is for you.

In this exciting talk, Dr. Pitre shines the light of the Old Testament and ancient Judaism on the words and deeds of Jesus to reveal the amazingly Jewish roots of the Eucharist. Using his in-depth knowledge of Jewish messianic expectations, Dr. Pitre shows how the hope for a New Exodus and the coming of the Messiah proves that Jesus really did intend to give us the Eucharist, and it is nothing less than the gift of Himself, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.
