Deep in Scripture

Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ - St. Jerome

The Catholic Church has always venerated the divine Scriptures, and teaches that “Sacred Scripture is the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit.” She also, “forcefully and specifically exhorts all the Christian faithful to learn ‘the surpassing knowledge of Jesus Christ’ (Phil. 3.8) by frequent reading of the divine Scriptures. ‘Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.’” (From the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, nos. 9, 21, and 25)

CHNetwork’s "Deep in Scripture” program hosted by Marcus Grodi is broadcast on EWTN Radio 2 on Saturdays at 11am and Sundays at 2pm (eastern time) and the recorded program can be listened to here on our website.

What Exactly is “the Gospel” Anyway? Romans 1 – Deep in Scripture Radio

July 25, 2014 | no responses

What is “the Gospel of God”? When St. Paul said he was not ashamed of the Gospel, or that he was “set apart for the gospel”, what did he meant by “the gospel”? Do all Christians agree on what this means? And what does “the gospel” require of us? What must we believe? What must we do? Or does it even require that we do anything, except believe in Jesus Christ?

Today Marcus Grodi and Dr. Howell begin a series of study on the book of Romans.

Sharing the Gospel When It Is DIFFICULT! Romans 1:16 – Deep in Scripture Radio

July 17, 2014 | no responses

How do we tell a world, how do we tell our neighbors, the truth about Jesus Christ and the gift of salvation, when the world, even our neighbors, no longer share the common Christian assumptions? How do you tell them about Jesus when they no longer accept the possibility of a Creator God? Or how do you correct Christians who have inaccurate views of the faith, of Jesus, of the Church, which they only hear you through the lenses of their prejudice, or ignorance? And when does our own pride get in the way when we are trying to help others break form the sin of pride? This is what we will start discussing today on Deep in Scripture.

Faith, Works and Abraham Part 2: What must we do to be saved? Galatians 3:1-14 – Deep in Scripture Radio

July 10, 2014 | one response

“What must we do to be saved?” This question draws us into the theological questions of salvation, justification, sanctification, faith and works, and the diversity of opinions on these issues have sadly divided Christians for centuries. Both sides of the arguments claim Saint Paul as their champions, but especially, through Saint Paul, point to Abraham as the model for all men of faith. Many non-Catholic Christians still presume that Catholics believe that they are saved by works, but is this true? And was Abraham a model of faith without works? This is what we discuss today on Deep In Scripture.

Many people asked Jesus, “What must I do to be saved?”, and two thousand years later, many more are still asking this question.
