Video: The Bible and the Virgin Mary

Madonna and Child

The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, in honor of the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, is making all twelve lessons of it's series The Bible and the Virgin Mary available to watch online from Wednesday, May 11th to Friday, May 13th. [See video below for the trailer.] While portions of this series are accessible on YouTube, this is a chance to view it in its entire original, unedited, presentation. From the series' website:

1. What is The Bible and the Virgin Mary?

Part of the St. Paul Center’s Journey Through Scripture program, The Bible and the Virgin Mary is a dynamic, beautifully shot, digital Bible study comprised of 12 different lessons, each roughly 25 minutes in length.

Based upon the work of theologian Dr. Scott Hahn, this study is presented by speaker and author Matthew Leonard. It teaches Catholics how Marian doctrine and devotion are firmly rooted in Scripture and answers common objections from non-Catholics.

The Bible and the Virgin Mary is based upon Dr. Hahn’s book Hail Holy Queen, which is included in the Leader Kit and also available for purchase by participants. There are suggested readings from Hail Holy Queen, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Bible at the end of each lesson.

2. What is the Journey Through Scripture Series?

Journey Through Scripture is the St. Paul Center’s dynamic parish-based Bible study program designed to help ordinary Catholics grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our faith.

The Bible and the Virgin Mary is the first study from the Journey Through Scripture series to be made available on DVD. The other five studies are presented live in local churches by people trained through the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology—people just like you. These studies, which are not yet available on DVD, include: Genesis to Jesus, The Bible and the Mass, The Bible and the Sacraments, The Bible and the Church Fathers, and The Bible and Prayer.
