catholic_FINAL_150Every book in the Bible is Catholic…but this one’s really Catholic.

When I was a Protestant missionary in Latin America, one of my fellow missionaries told me that he was trying to read the book of Hebrews, but he found it “just plain weird.” He didn’t know what to make of it. And it’s no wonder. It’s totally Catholic!

(Uhhh…maybe that’s why Martin Luther wanted to unload it from the canon of Scripture.)

In this episode of the Art of Catholic we’re going to begin our focus on the 7 core Catholic beliefs that underlie this amazing book of the Bible. My guest is a convert and gifted author named Shane Kapler, who wrote a book on this very topic titled The Epistle to Hebrews and the Seven Core Beliefs of Catholics. This is a great episode to start expanding your knowledge of Scripture.

Among other things we’ll discuss:51Iw9PD+USL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

  • Who wrote Hebrews and why it’s one of the most argued topics in Scripture study
  • Why Hebrews has special relevance today given the current condition of the world
  • How Hebrews bridges the gap between the Old and New Testaments
  • The Jewish background of Hebrews (does that sound redundant?)
  • How the doctrine of the Trinity is unveiled in Hebrews

All that and more in episode 39 of the Art of Catholic. God bless and enjoy!

Nunca el inglés fue mi segunda lengua, ni tercera, ni cuarta… pero el abordaje de los temas que Uds. presentan y la profundidad y riqueza que revelan de la doctrina católica me ha hecho replantear lo anterior.
El catolicismo es enriquecido desde la perspectiva anglosajona y latina.
Estoy muy agradecido por su labor, y espero que en un futuro pueda existir material traducido al castellano(hay mucho, en mi lengua nativa, pero la perspectiva o la metodología de exposición es distinta)

Que Dios los bendiga.

Atte.

I am so glad that a dear friend told me about The Bible and the Virgin Mary. That was my first intro in Matthew Leonard. Now I listen to all the podcasts. I will forward the email announcing this one with Shane Kapler to my prayer group. I can’t wait to hear the continuation next week.

One thing I have to ask…did I hear you wrong? I thought you said the verse from Hebrews 5:17. I don’t believe there is a 5:17.

Hi Gloria! You didn’t hear me wrong…I just said the wrong thing:) It’s Hebrews 5:7, not 17. (That’s what happens when you’re past 40:) God bless you and thanks for listening!
