Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The bestselling follow-up to Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist. Includes a reader's guide and an excerpt from Pitre's The Case for Jesus.

In Jesus the Bridegroom, Brant Pitre once again taps into the wells of Jewish Scripture and tradition, and unlocks the secrets of what is arguably the most well-known symbol of the Christian faith: the cross of Christ. In this thrilling exploration, Pitre shows how the suffering and death of Jesus was far more than a tragic Roman execution. Instead, the Passion of Christ was the fulfillment of ancient Jewish prophecies of a wedding, when the God of the universe would wed himself to humankind in an everlasting nuptial covenant.

To be sure, most Christians are familiar with the apostle Paul's teaching that Christ is the 'Bridegroom' and the Church is the 'Bride'. But what does this really mean? And what would ever possess Paul to compare the death of Christ to the love of a husband for his wife? If you would have been at the Crucifixion, with Jesus hanging there dying, is that how you would have described it? How could a first-century Jew like Paul, who knew how brutal Roman crucifixions were, have ever compared the execution of Jesus to a wedding? And why does he refer to this as the great mystery Read More chevron_right

   Presenting an Ever Clearer Picture of The Jewish Roots of Christianity
You will find the light shed on topics concerning the meaning of Jesus words and how they relate, and are an integral part of Jewish history. Knowing how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together is but one of the main goals of this book. Dr. Pitre is organized as well as thorough in his presentation of the subject matter, especially the bridegroom of course. Brant Pitre leaves hardly a stone unturned and I felt that he gave us a little too much information at times, but it is all there and to think that he is only scratching the surface. I could go on and on about it, but why not just get a copy and find out for yourself. You won 't be disappointed!

This book is a fine example of how the New Testament reveals the Old Testament. The author weaves the threads of the two testaments into a finely seamless garment of the Revelation of Christ. It makes complete scriptural sense through the quotation of passages that lead to a conclusion, how Jesus is revealed to his church. It can be no coincidence that the scriptures interlock so tightly in both the testaments. This is a must read for the Protestant or Catholic or Moslem or Jew.

Great service from the staff. Mind Blowing, you will see the Sacraments in a new way that makes your participation in the Mass more meaningful and beautiful.
   I enjoyed the first 90% of the book
The first 90% of the book enjoyed me. Very informative and insightful. The last section on Christian marriage did not seem to fit. The book is overall a book that I read and recommend again.

   Great study
Good for any Christian like this book. Jewish roots of Christianity are amazing, I learned a lot and hope many others do as well.
   Every Christian must read this!
In Jesus the Bridegroom, Dr. Pitre carefully examines the cryptic references to the Bridegroom in the New Testament and provides background on how Jesus'first followers would have understood it, and how this influences how the church worships him today. If you identify as any kind of Christian whatsoever, this is a must-read book as you seek more love for your heavenly bridegroom, Jesus.
   Welcome addition to your spiritual reading shelves
I am reading the Bridegroom to Jesus and I am about 75 % finished with it. And Wow, Brant Pitre's teaching is excellent, so much so that I have already bought this book for two friends. I have a Master of Divinity, but have never heard such an excellent explanation of God as the Divine Bridegroom! As a Catholic, I never comprehended what it meant, but not only is this relationship understood, but you feel the love of God if you read it. My friends have been warned against reading JTB in public, because even though you know that God loves you, the realization of how much God loves us will make you weep.
