The Jewish Roots of Mary
This study day is offered to anyone who has ever wondered what the Bible really teaches about Mary, the mother of Jesus. It is offered particularly to those who have been puzzled by, struggled with, or rejected Catholic beliefs about Mary as unbiblical.
Participants are taken step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal where Catholic beliefs about Mary really come from. Using the Old Testament and ancient Judaism, we will see how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.
