Brother Bob Fishman --
Uncover the Priceless Spiritual Treasures of the Church's Jewish Roots
Why did Pope Pius XII declare that Catholics should consider themselves "spiritual Semites?" What significance do Old Testament customs and practices hold for Christians of today? How will discovering the Church's Jewish heritage deepen our knowledge and love for Christ?
A Little Jewish Secret
Brother Bob Fishman vividly relates the deep meaning behind the religious Judaism of Jesus and shares many "little Jewish secrets" along the way. You'll be enriched by his many profound insights into Jewish custom and practice and how Our Lord Jesus, who, as Brother Bob reminds us, was accepted as a Rabbi in His community and first shed His Precious Blood in a Jewish rite, embraced them.
You'll be moved by Brother Bob's passion as a convert and a storyteller and amused by his characteristic Jewish wit as you painlessly learn to more fully appreciate the rich heritage that we share with our Jewish brothers and sisters-and how that heritage is truly fulfilled in the Catholic Church.
Passover and the Mass
Brother Bob's many meaningful insights include the several similarities between the Passover and the Mass. In fact, he demonstrates how Jesus' whole life and ministry were a "Passover" for us all. In this soul-stirring section of Brother Bob's latest video you'll rediscover the life-changing power of the one non-Jewish event in the life of Christ-His crucifixion. But perhaps most powerfully, Brother Bob Fishman shares why Christ came as the "Lamb of God" and chose to die for the love of you.
Watching this enlightening and informative video you're sure to appreciate the many examples of God's love for his people that are drawn from our everyday experience. These practical illustrations will stay with you long after the presentation is over, and help to enrich your journey of faith as well as faith of everyone with whom you share it.
