Fr. Cedric Pisegna, C.P. presents 8 TV Programs on 2 DVDs

Each Gospel presents Jesus in a different way. The four portraits of Jesus help us to know Him more authentically. Mark, Matthew, Luke and John were all written at different times to various communities for a number of reasons. Each were trying to proclaim that Jesus is the Son of God and through Him by faith we can receive eternal life.

The eight episodes include the following:

  • The Gospels of Mark: Mark’s Gospel is the first written was well as the shortest. Mark redefines what “Son of God” means. His 16 chapters are the “beginning” of the Gospel. How we receive what is written and act on it is the end. His Gospel is interactive and immersive literature.
  • The Gospel of Matthew: Matthew takes Mark’s Gospel and adds his own theology and writes to a Jewish Christian community. Jesus is the fulfillment of the law and a new Moses. Jesus’ teachings are diverse and challenging. Because of Jesus our lives can change.
  • The Gospel of Luke: Luke is the longest Gospel and he writes to a largely Gentile community, perhaps in Ephesus. His themes are the poor, joy, prayer and the Holy Spirit. Luke was a physician and he presents Jesus as the doctor of our body and soul.
  • The Gospel of John: John is a maverick Gospel, much different from the other three. He emphasizes the divinity of Christ and that Jesus is the “logos” the Word made flesh. Jesus’ signs are meant to evoke belief. John’s main concern is that we receive abundant, eternal life.
  • Acts of the Apostles: Authored also by Luke this document has to do with the spread of Gospel from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth. Both Peter and especially Paul and their missionary journeys are the focus. Because of the 56 citations about the Holy Spirit this book could be called the Acts of the Holy Spirit.
  • The Passion of Jesus: The Passion narratives may have been the first to be written down. Some scholars say the Gospels are the Passion narratives with a long introduction. Because of Jesus’ passion we can experience healing, intimacy with Jesus and salvation. The kerygma of the early church was: Forgiveness.
  • Jesus’ Teachings: Jesus is the greatest teacher of all time. He taught in stories, parables, proverbs and was conversational. He taught with authority and profound wisdom. Unlike most other teachers, His teachings concentrate no on others, but on Himself. He is the way the truth and the life. He came to bring abundant life!
  • Christmas: Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year. Yet, many suffer with loneliness, grief and stress as they experience Christmas. The meaning of Christmas is God became human so that humans could become God; become divinized. Jesus was the only person born expressly to die. He came to save us from sin and death.
