Bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist casts new light on the Virgin Mary, illuminating her role in the Old and New Testaments .
Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the “traditions of men”? Should she be called the “Mother of God,”? Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the “brothers of Jesus” refer to her other children? Do Catholics worship her? What does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?
In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Brant Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and ancient Judaism beliefs to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen Mother, and the new Ark of the Covenant.
