Is the Catholic priesthood in the Bible? What is the difference between the priests in the Old Testament and Catholic priests today? The history of the priesthood is lengthy and can be very complicated, but you can understand it!
Jeff Cavins is joined by Dr. John Bergsma to give a thorough narration of the priesthood starting in Genesis and journeying all the way to today. As Jeff Cavins said, “This is one of the best I’ve heard of someone going through a study of the priesthood.”
Dr. John Bergsma is Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. He served as a Protestant pastor for four years before entering the Catholic Church in 2001 while pursuing a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame, specializing in the Old Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Since 2004, Dr. Bergsma’s primary work has been teaching Scripture to Franciscan University of Steubenville’s theology and catechetics majors. A frequent guest on Relevant Radio’s Drew Mariani Show and Sacred Heart Radio’s Son Rise Morning Show, Dr. Bergsma has appeared on EWTN’s The Journey Home and Life on the Rock, and speaks regularly at conferences and parishes nationwide. Dr. Bergsma has numerous academic and popular publications, including the books Bible Basics for Catholics and New Testament Basics for Catholics from Ave Maria Press. He and his wife Dawn reside with their eight children in Steubenville, Ohio.
