Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist: Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper - Dr Brant Pitre - Augustine Institute (Paperback)

"Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus' purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, "This is my body... This is my blood"?

Pages: 228
Book Dimensions: 5.25" x 8" 

To answer these questions, Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys-the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence-have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday

 
Inspiring and informative, "Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" is a groundbreaking work that is sure to illuminate one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith: the mystery of Jesus' presence in "the breaking of the bread."

A Eucharist Eye Opener

I can't recommend this book high enough. Brant Petrie delves into the teaching and background of the Eucharist in a thorough, yet accessible way. He touches on the the origins and practice of the Passover, the Temples, the Jewish expectations of the Messiah, and the culture of 1st century Israel. He then goes on to show how all this is fulfilled with our Lord at the Last Supper, His death and resurrection. Brant also includes Church teaching backed up with quotes from the early Church Fathers. An engaging book, I did have to try to not race through it and make sure that I paused to meditate on what I'd read. As a convert of only a few years, I found this book particularly helpful. But I would also recommend it for anyone wanting to better understand their faith.
