"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Some of Jesus' last words on the Cross. Why those words? The answer lies in Psalm 22. Richaél Lucero gives a run through of this prophetic Psalm. Listen and hear how it parallels the Passion of Christ with eerie detail. You'll also learn the answer to the pressing question: why did Jesus speak those words on the Cross? And was he communicating a bigger message?
God prepared the Israelites for the Eucharistic covenant through his prophets. Look at the Last Supper and Crucifixion with Richaél Lucero. You'll learn how they fulfill God's promises given through the prophets. And what this new covenant in Jesus’ blood means for us today.
The covenants of salvation history are more connected than they seem. First, God strategically grew his family from a marriage to an international Church through the covenants. And second, every covenant was fulfilled by Jesus. Listen to week eight of our salvation history series as Richaél Lucero points out the main ways Jesus did this. You'll also follow the growth of God's family in the Old Testament through the covenants.
Today we begin to explore the final covenant in salvation history—Jesus. Review prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel with Richaél Lucero. They reveal a covenant that is not confined to Jesus the God-man or his Passion and death. But includes the events in the Upper Room on Holy Thursday and the height of the Divine Liturgy we celebrate every Sunday—the Eucharist. You'll also learn why this covenant was foretold as a *new, everlasting, covenant of peace.*
