A Weekly Defense of the Faith: January Preview

The Catholic Church bases her teaching upon one source: The word of God. This divine revelation is transmitted in two ways: through Scripture and apostolic tradition.  Over the coming months, we are going to explore many of the core teachings of the Catholic faith. The very teachings that are handed down to us through Scripture and apostolic tradition, neither of which contradicts the other, as we shall find out.

Here is a preview of what we will be discussing in January. Are you ready?

January 2 – Why Do We Call Mary, ‘Mother of God?’

Learn why we call Mary, the Mother of God. Is it because she is considered a ‘goddess?’ Absolutely not! Mary always points us to her Son, Jesus Christ, the ONE and ONLY God of ALL Creation.

January 9 – Did Mary Remain a Virgin After the Birth of Jesus?

Matthew 1:25 says that Joseph “had no relations with her until she bore a son, and he named him Jesus.” Does that mean that he had relations with Mary after Jesus was born? What does it matter?

January 16 – Jesus is God!

How do we know? We will explore scripture and the writings of the Early Church to show how we know.

January 23 – Jesus is also Man!

Jesus is one person, with two natures. He is both God and Man. This teaching was and is still a big stumbling block for many.

January 30- Old Testament Prophecies Fulfilled Only by Jesus.

The Old Testament has many prophecies about the messiah.  These prophecies were fulfilled by the coming of Jesus.

More to come…

That should get our new year started off great. If you have any questions about the Catholic faith that you would like for me to answer, let me know. I will do my very best to answer…and if I don’t know the answer, I will find the answer. In the Catholic Church, there is always an answer. God Bless!

Tell your friends and family – the discussion should be lively!
