The Eucharistic Theology of Early Church Fathers

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.28.11

Joel, who speaks of how he is more Eucharistic-centric than many of his Protestant friends, has a great post up on John Paul II and the Eucharist. Of course, I’m pretty Eucharistic-centric too. : )

In fact, at JP Catholic we participate in the Eucharistic celebration every day.

Anyways. . . since Joel brought up the Eucharist, I thought I’d share a bit from the early church fathers.

Irenaeus on the...  [Continue Reading]

Understanding the Book of Acts: Part 2—Acts of Jesus & Acts of the Apostles

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.27.11

In the first post of this series I highlighted the unity of Luke-Acts. I emphasized that the two books seem to show us that the ministry of Jesus is continued through his Church. Now I want to begin to move closely through the narrative, highlighting the way this theological truth is underscored.

Indeed, for the reader who knows the Gospel of Luke, Acts is a sort of déjà vu experience. The narrative...  [Continue Reading]

Jesus Didn't Just "Die for Our Salvation": Why He Rose from the Dead

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.26.11

Most people know that Jesus died for their sins. But, as we shall see, according to the New Testament Jesus also rose for our salvation. This aspect of the biblical message is often neglected. The...  [Continue Reading]

Understanding the Book of Acts: Part 1—"Why Do You Persecute Me?"

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.26.11

As we begin the Easter season, the liturgy—particularly the lectionary readings—turn our attention to the Book of Acts. Here then I thought I’d return to some material I’ve touched upon here in the past, namely, the link between the Acts of the Apostles and the life of Christ in the Gospel of Luke.

Indeed, once you see how the ministry of the Church in Acts is linked to that of Christ’s in the Gospels—and...  [Continue Reading]

The Whole Earth Keeps Silence

Posted by Mike Aquilina on 04.23.11

Something strange is happening ... there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear.

He has gone to search for our first...  [Continue Reading]
