Talking about the "things that matter most" on May 29
4:00 – Jacob's
Ladder: Ten Steps to Truth
There are ten important questions everyone should ask; and
the answers to these questions, which lead to ultimate truth, are a matter of
reason, not of faith. This is the thesis of well-known Catholic philosopher and
writer Peter Kreeft who
tackles each of these questions in a logical step-by-step way, like climbing
the rungs of a ladder. Because questions are best answered by dialogue, Kreeft
answers these fundamental questions in an imaginary conversation between two
very different people who meet at the beach. Dr. Kreeft joins us.
5:00 – Consuming the Word: The New Testament
and The Eucharist in the Early Church
Long before the New Testament was a
document, it was a sacrament. Jesus called the Eucharist by the name Christians
subsequently gave to the latter books of the Holy Bible. It was the "New
Covenant," the "New Testament," in his blood. Christians later
extended the phrase to cover the books produced by the apostles and their
companions; but they did so because these were the books that could be read at
Mass. This simple and demonstrable historical fact has enormous implications
for the way we read the Bible. Dr.
Scott Hahn is here to examine some of Christianity's most basic terms
to discover what they meant to the sacred authors, the apostolic preachers, and
their first hearers.
