052: What Do the Dead Sea Scrolls Teach us about Catholicism (w/ Dr. John Bergsma) March 25, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I’m just by theologian and author Dr. John Bergsma to talk about the incredible and ancient Dead Sea Scrolls and what amazing insights these documents provide us into our Catholic Christian faith.

In these episode we dig deep into what the Dead Sea Scrolls are, what the community of Jewish believers that collected them were like, and how the way they lived and celebrated their faith has incredible implications for the beginning of the Catholic Church and the Catholic faith today. It’s an amazing interview with a truly brilliant scholar – you aren’t going to want to miss this one!

For more from Dr. John Bergsma visit his website. His fantastic book, Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls: Revealing the Jewish Roots of Christianity is available on Amazon in print, digital format, and audiobook as well.
