Audio Sample:

You are invited to sit at the table with Jesus in this insightful course.

“Do this in memory of me.” Of all the teachings that Jesus imparted to His disciples, why did He ask that they remember Him by sharing a meal? And what does it mean to follow His request today?

In these 12 engaging lectures, you will discover the historical context and development of the Last Supper and the Eucharist. As you explore early Christianity and the New Testament, you will come to understand communal meals as Jesus saw them: a way of sharing the Gospel.

Looking at the context in which Jesus lived, you will consider the religious significance of food in Judaism and the Greek concept of banquets. As you do so, you will come to understand Jesus’ actions and what meals meant to the earliest Christians. Next, you will turn to the New Testament, exploring the Last Supper and the theme of table fellowship in Luke-Acts and the letters of Paul. Finally, you will consider the spiritual significance of sharing meals and celebrating the Eucharist.

At the end of these brilliant lectures, you will emerge with a deep understanding of God’s creation and lavish love. In exploring the history, meaning, and significance of the Last Supper and the Eucharistic celebration, you will deepen your faith.

Take this fascinating journey today.

Summer 2018 Survey
Fr William Burton's lectures on "At the table with Jesus* are full of interesting information that gives a good background and also new light on certain passages in the Gospel. I found it fascinating and enjoyed it so much that I bought another set to give to a friend so she can enjoy it too. Review by Antoinette Agius, Birkirkara, Malta (Posted on 7/5/2018)
Winter Survey: January 2017
The DVD "At the Table with Jesus" is one of the finest programs on the Eucharist that I have ever viewed! Father's delivery, knowledge, sense of humor, clear presentation is one of the programs that I will continue to view and offer for study groups! I recommend this program to everyone who desires a deeper appreciation of the Eucharist! Thank you and God bless you for offering the best contemporary theological presenters and programs. The CD "Becoming the Eucharist we Celebrate" is also an excellent program on the Eucharist. Fr. Cosby's presentation is extremely well delivered. It deepened my appreciation and knowledge of the culture and times that opened new visas and appreciation of the Great Sacrament of Love!

Kept our attention
This CD brought the Eucharist and Bible readings into the light of truth as the speaker reviewed the important history surrounding favorite stories. He was clearly excited about his topic, and kept our attention as he connected the dots. Review by Maureen (Posted on 10/19/2016)
