As we begin this Lent, Lord, I heed your voice. Conform my will to yours, my thoughts to yours. As I journey this Lent, I fast from angry and hurtful words, and rash judgements. Help me speak only kind words, life-affirming words so others hear your voice, your love, in me. As I journey this Lent, I fast from words, so that in the silence I may listen better. Help me hear the words of those whom you place before me each day, to better understand and meet their wants, their needs, their concerns. Through me, then Lord, may you bring comfort and hope to this world. This Lent, I choose you, Lord. Amen.

A Powerful Study on the Life of Jesus Christ
Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life is a 10-week video study program and book. Anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels, this study explores the entirety of Jesus’ life—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what he did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us as Catholics today.
Filmed in the Holy Land so Catholics can experience the extraordinary world in which Jesus lived and taught—the historical context, the politics, the clashing cultures, the history, and the ancient land—and see where the most significant events of his life took place, from his infancy to his ascension.
This study shows, in a simple way, how Jesus, the Incarnate God, is both fully divine and fully human—his intimacy with the Father, his revelation of the Father’s love, and his extraordinary influence on his disciples, his followers, and even his enemies.
Most importantly, this encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life in him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.
In This Study, Catholics Will Learn...
- Who Jesus is and how he answers the longings of the human heart.
- Why Jesus was baptized.
- The significance of the Transfiguration.
- The essentials of Christology explained in a way the average Catholic can understand.
- The mystery and meaning of the Resurrection, Christ’s triumph over death.
- The nature of Jesus’ mission and the redemption of humanity.
- Our role today as Catholics in the Great Commission.
“For God so loved the world that he gave* his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”
