Catholic believe that their Church was founded by and on Jesus Christ but what does that mean? In this episode we look at how modern historians look at Jesus as well as how Jesus was understood by the Early Church.

    About a two year layoff. Welcome back!

    As I recall, one of the first things I read or listened to was the story about the Jesuit martyrs in 16th century Japan. That was .compelling.

    Hi Fr. Seraphim! Thank you for this. I’ve only been able to listen to some of it, but it sounds really good so far! I really like how you discuss methods in the study of the historical Jesus. I’m not a history major nor have taken any history classes in university, so it was really interesting to hear about! It’s my first time on your blog, but I really like it so far and so shall follow your blog! I wish we could download the lesson so we could listen to it on the bus or something! In any case, I’ll add this to my “to go back to” list!

    Much thanks,
