Series on St. Joseph
Week Four of Six
"The Hidden King"
During this year dedicated to St. Joseph by Pope Francis, I invite you to journey with Dr. Brant
Pitre in a six-part DVD series looking at the Jewish Roots of St. Joseph.
“Many books on St. Joseph focus on apocryphal legends and private revelations. In this Bible Study,
Dr. Pitre focuses on what we can learn about St. Joseph from the Bible, ancient Jewish and Roman
history, and the living Tradition of the Church. As you will discover, although St. Joseph is silent in
the pages of the New Testament, when looked at through ancient Jewish eyes, he stands with Jesus
and Mary at the very center of salvation history.”
