ST-V16 Romans 9-16 Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran Video Podcast

“Romans 9-16” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

In this lecture, Sharon completes our journey through the book of Romans. The over-arching theme in this section is the universality of salvation through Jesus Christ. Taking us back to Genesis, Sharon focuses on the election of Israel as God’s chosen people. The children of promise, the offspring of Abraham and Sarah, become the nation of Israel. The children of flesh, the offspring of Abraham and Hagar, become the nation of Islam. Yet, as predicted by the prophets Hosea and Isaiah, only a remnant of Israel will be justified through faith in Jesus while the gentiles will be welcomed into covenant with God through faith in Christ. Sharon teaches us about the Jewish feast of Pentecost, which is also known as the feast of first fruits. The birth of the Church occurs with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, and the first Jewish Christians are the first fruits of the new covenant. Using the imagery of an olive tree, Sharon also shows us how the nation of Israel is cut off due to their hardened hearts and lack of belief in Christ. Yet the roots remain holy and the gentiles are grafted into these roots to bear fruit for the kingdom of God. Even more, righteousness is offered to ALL nations provided they have faith in Jesus; the children of promise (Israel) and the children of flesh (Islam) can be grafted into these holy roots and bear fruit for the kingdom of God through the righteousness of faith in Jesus Christ.For the audio-only version of this podcast

ST-V15 Romans 5-8 Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran Video Podcast

“Romans 5-8” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

In this week’s lecture, Sharon continues to guide us through Romans. She begins with a nice explanation about Paul’s use of diatribe, a literary technique where the speaker engages in a dialogue with imaginary opponents. Understanding this technique is essential to understanding Paul’s intended message. Using Romans 5 as a spring-board, Sharon then goes on to give us an in-depth teaching on the theological virtues of faith, hope and love. Another theme that runs through Romans is summed up in the doxology of the Lord’s Prayer; it is “Through Him, With Him and In Him.” Everything goes through Jesus: freedom from sin, freedom from death. Sharon concludes with this wonderful insight: God always creates through water and Spirit. From the creation of the world, to the recreation after the flood, to the creation of the nation of Israel, to the creation of the Church, to the creation of our new lives through Baptism, God creates through water and Spirit.

ST-V14 Romans 1-4 Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran Video Podcast

“Romans 1-4” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

“True comfort comes when iniquity is pardoned.” With these words, Sharon begins the first of three lessons covering Paul’s monumental work, the book of Romans. One of the overarching themes of this book is that through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are pardoned for our sins. Paul begins his letter with the bad news: we are dying in our sins. But then, he delivers the good news: Jesus Christ provides a way out of sin. Sharon emphasizes that in order to fully understand Romans, we have to know that Paul is addressing the tension between the Jewish and Gentile Christians of Rome, explaining that righteousness comes through faith in Jesus Christ and not through adherence to the laws of the old covenant. Another theme of Romans is the obedience of faith, which is beautifully illustrated through the story of Abraham, whose faith continued to grow throughout his entire life. To be righteous, (that is, in right relationship with God), we must have faith in his only son, Jesus. Furthermore, Sharon teaches us of the importance of worship. When we fail to worship our Creator and, instead, worship the creation, we fall into idolatry, which invariably leads to sexual immorality.

ST-V13 – Acts 17 & Thessalonians– Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran – Video Podcast

“Acts 17 And Thessalonians” – Seeking Truth Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

This study examines Acts chapter 17 in conjunction with Paul’s two letters to the Thessalonians, the earliest New Testament letters. Beginning with a historical overview of the city of Thessalonica, Sharon examines Daniel 9, demonstrating the fulfillment of the Messianic prophecy delivered to Daniel by the angel Gabriel to come in 490 years. The same angel Gabriel announced the conception of John the Baptist to his old father Zechariah as the one who would herald the way of the long awaited Messiah. The Angel Gabriel is the same angel who declared to Mary that she would bear the anointed one, the Messiah, a 490 day time period from conception to presentation in the temple. By outlining the true Messianic kingship of Jesus, Sharon goes on to show how Paul could not ignore the lordship of Jesus Christ. He felt an incredible urgency to spread the message of the Christ, willing to endure incredible sufferings for the sake of the Gospel. Paul and his fellow disciples, “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6) as they traveled from city to city, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. The life of the Church recapitulates the life of Christ, who through His death and resurrection had all ready turned the world upside down. Paul is up against a tough crowd of Jews in Thessalonica. While many of the Thessalonians do not accept the gospel message, some of them do, along with Greek Gentiles and several leading women. The Beroean Jews are more receptive to Paul’s message, testing his preaching daily against the Old Testament scriptures and holding fast to what they find to be true. The jealous Jews from Thessalonica pursue Paul to diminish his ministry in Beroea, and to avoid death he swiftly left by sea to Athens, the intellectual Mecca of Greece. In Athens, many philosophers are curious about his message but most find Jesus to be nothing more than a curiosity. Sharon exhorts us to action, emphasizing that the Word of God must transform us, making that longest journey: the 18 inches from head to heart, provoking us to internalize Christ, propelling us to evangelize and transform the world around us.

ST-V12 – Philippians – Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran – Video Podcast

“Philippians” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study with Sharon Doran from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

In Acts 16, Paul and Silas visited the city of Philippi, so today we turn our attention to Paul’s beautiful letter to the Philippians. Written while in prison, Paul’s affection for the Philippians flows out through his words. Sharon begins with a panoramic historical view and then progressively narrows her focus, drawing us further in as the lecture progresses. To set the stage, Sharon takes us back to Daniel 2, showing us Daniel’s interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream which prophesied a succession of empires: Babylonian, Persian, Greek and ultimately Roman. Sharon then gives us a nice overview of the history of Roman emperors who ruled just before, during and following the time of Christ. Knowing this history enriches our understanding of not only Paul’s letter to the Philippians, but of the entire Bible and the initial 400 years of the Church. Sharon then turns her attention to Paul’s letter to the Philippians, which overflows with profound passages, rich in wisdom and theological significance. Working her way through this amazing epistle, Sharon periodically pauses and focuses on various important passages. The climax of the lecture is a wonderful teaching on Philippians 2:5-11, a beautiful hymn about Christ’s humility, obedience, humanity and divinity.

ST-V11 – Acts of the Apostles, Chapters Acts 16 – Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran – Video Podcast

“Acts 16” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

“The Lord opened her heart.” With these beautiful words, we learn about Lydia, a wealthy woman from Philippi and dealer of purple cloth. The story of Lydia serves as a springboard of encouragement for us to open our own hearts to the Lord, who is always knocking at but never forcing His way into our hearts. Sharon then gives us some fascinating details about the production of purple dyes and the political/social significance of this precious fabric. We also learn more about Timothy, who accompanies Paul during this part of his ministry and is later installed as the bishop of Ephesus. Sharon gives us insight into the cultures of Philippi and Ephesus, which helps us better understand the pastoral issues that Paul and Timothy addressed in their letters to these Christian communities. The chapter ends with an amazing jailbreak: secured by stocks, Paul and Silas witness to their fellow prisoners, only to be freed through a miraculous earthquake. The despondent jailer is about to take his own life, but Paul and Silas convince him otherwise, preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ, and the jailer along with his entire household are baptized.

ST-V10 – Acts of the Apostles, Chapters Acts 15 – Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran – Video Podcast

“Acts 15” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

In Acts Chapter 15, we hear about the controversy in the early church regarding the need for circumcision. To resolve this issue, the first council of the church takes place in Jerusalem. At first glance, this might seem to be some obscure problem that is interesting, but not really pertinent to our faith. But Sharon gives us a masterful teaching about the importance of circumcision, showing us how it was the outward sign of God’s covenant with Israel. However, with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God establishes His final universal covenant with the entire world. The mediator of this new covenant is Jesus, and the sign of this new covenant is the Eucharist. And just as circumcision takes place on the 8th day after birth, so too does the celebration of the Eucharist take place on the 8th day, the day when we celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the dawn of a new creation.

ST-V8 – Acts of the Apostles, Chapters 10 -12 – Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran – Video Podcast

“Acts 10-12” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.
SharonThe Conversion of Saul. In this lesson, we narrow our focus to a single chapter in Acts, taking an in-depth look at the most famous of conversions. The most ferocious persecutor of the early church does an absolute 180 to become one of the most prolific witnesses of all times. Sharon shows us that true conversion requires both belief in Christ and repentance from sin as well as Baptism into the Trinity and mission. However, the call to share in the life of Christ is also a call to share in His suffering. Furthermore, Sharon teaches us that just as the life of Israel prefigures the life of Jesus, the life of the Church recapitulates the life of Christ. In particular, we receive a beautiful teaching about Paul’s three days of blindness, which recalls Jesus’ three days in the tomb and Jonah’s three days in the belly of the whale. Paul’s spirit is freed from the bondage of sin just as the imprisoned righteous spirits were freed from the bondage of hell. Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see. Saint Paul goes from moral blindness to become a full-sighted spiritual wonder, by the grace of the Risen Christ on the road to Damascus.

ST-V6 – “Acts of the Apostles, Chapters 8 ” – Seeking Truth with Sharon Doran – Video Podcast

“Acts 8” – Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study from Discerning Hearts on Vimeo.

Sharon

Our lesson this week covers Acts, Chapter 8, which is brimming with amazing stories. With the persecution of the early Church, many of the disciples scatter to the regions of Judea and Samaria, just at Christ commanded in Acts 1:8. Sharon enlightens us about the history of Samaria, because understanding the relationship between the Jews and the Samaritans is vital to understanding many stories of the Bible. Sharon goes on to review some of the most profound teachings of Christ that occur in the region of Samaria: the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4), the Good Samaritan (Luke 10) and the healing of ten lepers (Luke 17). From there, we learn more about the curious character of Simon the magician. Simon, after seeing the signs and great miracles worked by Philip the deacon, comes to belief in Christ and is baptized. Yet, his conversion is tenuous, and almost immediately he is rebuked by Peter for attempting to purchase the apostolic power of laying hands. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we receive this terrific teaching about the Catholic sacrament of Confirmation, whose origins are found in this dynamic chapter. Finally, the lecture builds to a crescendo with the beautiful story of the Ethiopian eunuch, who reads from Isaiah and asks the question so many of us continue to ask today: “How can I understand this unless someone guides me?” While once an outcast under Mosaic Law, this emasculated man is now welcomed into the universal new covenant of Christ through the sacrament of Baptism.

Sharon

In Acts 6-7, we first learn that the apostles were faced with the pastoral challenge of equitable distribution of food to the widows. Sharon goes on to give a beautiful teaching about God’s tender heart towards widows, as seen both in Old and New Testament stories. To solve this pastoral problem, the Apostles appointed the first deacons, an ordained ministry of the early Church, now revived by Vatican II by the Western Church. Stephen, one of the first deacons, was also the first martyr of the post-resurrection Church. Sharon gives a terrific overview of Stephen’s famous speech to the Sanhedrin. As we find out, the life of Christ is recapitulated in the Church, and the martyrdom of Stephen echoes the martyrdom of Christ: both are executed for the undeserved charge of blasphemy. Stephen’s death and our own sufferings were foretold by Christ: “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you (John 15:18-19).”

Do some of the stories of the Bible seem unfair? Does God seem to be overly harsh? If these thoughts have occurred to you, keep reading. The birth of the Church at Pentecost is heralded by the dawn of a new priesthood. In this week’s lecture, Sharon traces the origin of the priesthood, beginning with Adam and then to Noah, Abraham, Moses and the Levites. However, with the great commissioning of the Apostles and our first Pope, Peter, a new priesthood in the order of Melchizedek is established. Jesus gives this new priesthood the power to forgive AND retain sins. Understanding this priestly role is critical to unlocking the unsettling story of Ananias and Sapphira, who were struck dead when they did not give Peter all their money. Many “Ah Hah!” moments are found in this lecture. You won’t want to miss it.

In this lecture, our study of Acts of the Apostles begins in earnest. The first two chapters of Acts are nothing less than astounding, with two amazing events taking place: the Ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. In this important lecture, Sharon demonstrates how the life of Jesus is recapitulated through His mystical body, the Church. Also, Sharon teaches us about the importance of Mary, who was present not only at the birth of Jesus, but also at the birth of the Church at Pentecost. Furthermore, we learn about the continuity between the Old and New Covenants, with particular attention given towards the typology of Jesus, the new Moses. Finally, Sharon shows us the incredible connections between the Jewish feast of Pentecost (Shavuot) and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the Pentecost of the Catholic Church.

Episode 26 –

Peter’s Profession of Faith (part 2)

“Who do you say that I am?” It is the fundamental question of our lives. Who is Jesus? In tonight’s lecture, Sharon teaches us about Peter and his profession of faith. This passage is overflowing with significance, for both the entire Church at large and for each individual member. As she does so well, Sharon shows us the Hebrew scripture foundation of the words of Jesus. We learn what it means for Peter to be called “Simon, son of Jonah.” We understand the significance of Peter as “rock” and discover the importance of the “keys of the kingdom” and St.-Peter-1“binding and loosing” as the basis for the magisterial authority of the Catholic Church. But then, Sharon draws close and tightens her focus on our own hearts, asking us the question that we MUST answer for ourselves: “But who do YOU say that I am?” Who is Jesus? Where is He in your life?

The fabric of this history is revealed in the genealogy of Jesus, a family tree ripe with great leaders and scandalous sinners.

This story is a stream that flows through the times of the patriarchs, the wandering in the desert, the era of the Judges, the reign of David and Solomon, the division of the Hebrew kingdom and the exile into Babylon.

This story is punctuated with the voices of the prophets who announce with astonishing accuracy the coming of Messiah.

This story is culminated in the most unlikely of places: the virginal womb of a young Jewish woman.

Episode 7 –

Sharon introduces teachings of several Church Fathers.
Of special interest is the Apostolic Father, St. Ignatius of Antioch and his letter to the Ephesians.

Ignatius teaches about three mysteries that must be kept secret from Satan until after the resurrection: Mary’s virginity, the virgin birth and the crucifixion of Jesus.
Drawing from later writings of Sts. Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, and Gregory, Sharon reveals to us some biblical foundations for Ignatius’ teachings as found in both Old and New Testaments.
The Holy Family’s Persona helps to hide Mary’s virginity and the virgin birth from worldly eyes and namely the “prince of the world”, so these secrets could remain hidden as Jesus grew up in Nazareth.
The hidden years come to an end when John baptizes Jesus in the Jordan River and Jesus voluntarily submits to the Father’s mission for Him.
The Father is well pleased with His beloved, obedient Son.
The scene ends with the Trinitarian theophany and Jesus is led by the Spirit out into the desert to be tempted by Satan himself.

His covenant kinship expands over time, including more and more sons and daughters into His worldwide universal family.

Through His parables, Jesus both conceals and reveals.

As Sharon teaches us in this lecture,
Jesus uses the parables to reveal the truths of the Kingdom.
Yet, he conceals his true identity as Messiah so that his plan for salvation will not be thwarted before the appointed hour of his death on the cross.
As Sharon shows us, these parables have an even deeper richness when seen through Middle Eastern eyes. Understanding the cultural details contained in parables such as the Sower or the Prodigal Son helps us to appreciate the power of these amazing stories.

The Miracles of Jesus (part 1)

In this lecture, Sharon illuminates the miracles of Jesus in the most beautiful way.

As we learn this week, Jesus demonstrates dominion over the elements as he calms the storm on the Sea of Galilee.

Arriving on the other side of the sea, Jesus then displays his Lordship over Satan as He heals the Gerasene demoniac, driving a Legion of demons into 2000 swine, who then hurl themselves over a cliff into the sea.

The power of these miracles comes alive in Sharon’s presentation, with Old Testament prophecies jumping off the pages as they are fulfilled one by one.

Yet, in the gentle, quiet healings of Jairus’ daughter and the woman with a hemorrhage we learn even more of Christ’s plan of salvation for a new Daughter Zion.

In a conclusion that is both rich in scholarly insight and flowing with pastoral mercy, Sharon brings us to the realization that we only have to reach out to receive the abundant healing that God desires to lavish upon us.

The Multiplication of the Loaves  (part 1)

Multiplication of the Loaves
(Mt 14,15; Mk 6,8; Lk 9; Jn 6)

“Looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before the people” (Mk 6:41).

Other than the resurrection of Jesus, the multiplication of the loaves is the only miracle described in all four Gospels.

The importance of this miracle cannot be overstated.

Sharon illuminates the importance of this miracle within the big picture of God’s plan of salvation.

The multiplication of the loaves is a hinge between the Old and New Covenants.

It connects Passover with the Heavenly Feast of the Lamb.

It connects the daily gift of manna in the desert with the never-ending gift of Eucharist.

It connects the Bread of the Presence from the old temple with the Bread of Life found in Jesus, the new temple.
