Meeting the Rest of the Family: An Introduction of Judaism with Bishop Richard J. Sklba.
At the heart of many forms of contemporary Judaism lies the First Covenant’s conviction of Gods’ loving covenant on Sinai with people of Israel (Exodus 19-24). The prophets praised those who were faithful and condemned those were not. Psalms sang of God’s goodness and justice. One cannot understand Jesus or the New Testament without appreciating the gift of its earlier partner.

The Gospel According to Paul with Rev. Juan Manuel Camacho
Saint Paul is the first follower of Christ who reflected and wrote on the Christ event: passion, death and resurrection. He used the word “gospel” for the first time in Christian writings to refer to what God has done for Humanity in Christ Jesus. His zeal and commitment to Christ took him to foreigner lands to proclaim the Salvific action taken by God through Christ for all humanity. Saint Paul was prolific apostle of the Gospel of Christ and a founder of many communities of believers.
