Enjoying The Old Testament
Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 12noon to 1:30pm
in the Parish Hall plan to attend
“Enjoying The Old Testament.”
Explore the Bible with one of the leading Old Testament scholars in the country, Boston College’s Fr. Richard J. Clifford, S.J.Ph.d.
The Old Testament can sometimes prove challenging to modern readers. Written during a time that is in many ways foreign to us, it’s books are rooted in the history of Judaism. With the video presentations of Fr. Clifford as our guide and with Fr. Morris leading the discussion period following the video, you will come to understand the fascinating historical and societal milieu of the Old Testament.

Jesus rejects the inadequate ways in which others understand his role, and demands that his disciples speak for themselves. Peter replies with what no doubt was a soleumn confessional formula of Matthew’s Church. Then Jesus reciprocates by conferring a new title on Peter. He will be the foundation-stone of the new people of God.
The story shows that the primacy of Peter was not something that was invented by the Church later on. It went right back to the beginning, yes, to the mind and will of Jesus himself. The failures of popes throughout history do not contradict Jesus’ promise that the gates of hell would not prevail against the Church. Peter himself failed the Lord. In giving authority to the man who denied him, Jesus wanted to show that he was establishing his Church not on human strength, but on his own love and faithfulness. The Church’s true foundation is Christ himself. The pope is his servant, not his substitute.
