Scripture never shows St. Joseph speaking, yet he plays such an important role in the Church—he stands as one of the most interesting figures in our history. One unique feature of his presence in Scripture is that, in almost all of the passages he’s referenced in, he is accompanied by angels. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Mike Aquilina, one of Scott Hahn’s good friends and co-founder of the St. Paul Center, explores the four “annunciations” to St. Joseph.
What does it mean to say that the Church is holy, when we look around and see so much unholiness? Unlike human institutions, the Church is made worthy not by her leaders but by her Head: Jesus Christ. When we profess that the Church is holy, we don’t mean that all her members are perfect—the Church is holy because she is our means of entering into the family of God.
The Church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. We believe these facts about the Church because we profess them in the Creed, but without faith, these marks would not be obvious to reason alone. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn challenges us to recognize the supernatural dimension of the Church founded by Jesus.
As a former persecutor of the Church, St. Paul seems like an unlikely person to become one of the most inspiring writers of Scripture. But the Lord knew that Paul could use his unique knowledge as a Scripture scholar to connect the Old Testament to Christ’s fulfillment in the New. Rob Corzine, a close friend of Scott Hahn’s who recorded this talk, introduces the incredible story of Paul’s letter to the Romans.
The Book of Revelation may be one of the most fascinating, and intimidating, books of the Bible. It has captured the imagination of readers throughout the centuries. With guidance, reading the Book of Revelation reveals something more than just earthquakes and falling stars. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn unlocks the Apocalypse of John.
