Dr. Michael Barber -- (7 CD Set)
How to Read the Book of Exodus to Enrich Your Understanding of Christ, the Church and the Holy Eucharist
In the comprehensive series Exodus: Deliverance and the Sacrifice, Professor Michael Barber reveals how to understand the historical, cultural, and spiritual context of this important Old Testament text. In his exhaustive chapter-by-chapter analysis, you’ll discover how God works in the world in order to teach us important spiritual realities.
More than a mere academic exercise, this Bible study reveals the immense value that the Book of Exodus has for Christians and how to apply its teachings to our own spiritual lives.
The New Passover
Professor of Scripture and Theology at John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, and a protégé of Dr. Scott Hahn, Michael Barber’s extensive 7-CD series proclaims the important truth that, like the ancient Israelites, we too are in exile far from our true home.
In Exodus, God speaks to man in a human way revealing His plan for the tabernacle, priestly vestments, and the altar of sacrifice and prefigures the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass—the new Passover that delivers us from captivity to sin.
As you delve deep into the second book of Moses, you’ll discern that the physical slavery of the chosen people in Egypt was really a manifestation of their deep spiritual slavery. And, as Michael relates of the ancient Israelites, we also live in a culture deeply rooted in immorality.
We too are in danger of falling into bondage; not physical slavery to the principalities and powers of this world, but to the spiritual forces of the devil and his minions that want to lead us away from Our Lord. We too are in captivity and in exile. We too need to return to the Promised Land of our forefathers. Our true home is the heavenly Jerusalem, and, like people of Israel, we too will be delivered by the Sacrifice of the Lamb.
