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.

    Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist
    Jan 19th 2020

    This is the second time I have seen or heard this material. The first time I was totally absorbed and fascinated with it and my thought was why don't they talk about this in study groups etc. Since then I have had an encounter with a Jewish man in a local hospital. I bring communion to the patients at this Catholic hospital regularly and one day I went into a patients room and asked if he would like communion and he replied "yes" there was another gentleman visiting the patient so as was customary I told him if you are Catholic you may also receive the Eucharist and he replied "oh no but thank you." The patient replied he is Jewish... and at that the man got up and began to
    exit the room. I called after him sir, I said you don't have to leave the prays I say are also from a Jewish Rabbi...a big small sweep across his face as he left the room.

    I very much enjoyed this CD, as I like to know the Jewish Roots of our Christain faith.
