Biblical Story of the Mass

In 15 Audio on 2015/11/20 at 12:00 AM

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

Prefigured in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New, the biblical story of the Mass spans the breadth of Scripture and beyond. What Jesus began on Calvary culminated in everlasting glory in the heavenly sanctuary, and is made present on earth every time Catholics celebrate and partake of our Eucharistic Lord in the Sacrifice of the Mass. Join Father Wade Menezes and EWTN Theology Advisor Tom Nash as they explore “The Biblical Story of the Mass.”

On Earth as It Is in Heaven: Rediscovering the Biblical Story of the Mass 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_01.mp3

The biblical story of the Mass didn’t begin at the Last Supper and Good Friday, nor did it end there. Sacrifices from Abel and Abraham to Melchizedek and Moses set the stage for Jesus Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” The Mass sacramentally re-presents or makes present again Christ’s one Sacrifice of Calvary, which began on the Cross and culminated in everlasting glory in the heavenly sanctuary.

2.

In God We Trust? Paradise Lost 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_02.mp3

It might be a surprise to hear, but the biblical story of the Mass actually begins in the Garden of Eden. See what happened when Adam and Eve failed to trust God, and how the tree of life prefigures the Eucharist.

3.

Worthy is the Lamb? 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_03.mp3

Lambs are known to be vulnerable and in need of being saved, so how did they become the prime image of the Savior? Learn why God chose the docile, “little lamb” as the sacrificial paradigm of discipleship.

4.

What’s Your Name? Who’s Your Daddy? The Priesthood of Melchizedek 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_04.mp3

Who was Melchizedek and what was the nature of his priesthood? And how did he become the priestly model for Jesus instead of the Levites, who served in the Temple of ancient Israel?

5.

Like Fathers, Like Sons: Abraham and Isaac Receive God’s Saving Word 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_05.mp3

God doesn’t ask more of us than he asks of himself. Learn how Abraham’s offering of his only son Isaac prefigures the Sacrifice of the Son of God, whom our heavenly Father sent to save the world.

6.

Thanks for the “Memories”: Passover, Yom Kippur and the Sacrifice of the Mass 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_06.mp3

For the ancient Israelites, liturgical “remembrance” was never a mere recollection. See how “yesterday impacts today” in the Old Covenant through God’s blessing, and how Jesus does so much more profoundly in the New Covenant Mass.

7.

God Draws Near to His People: Ancient Israel as Liturgical Training Ground 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_07.mp3

Offering sacrifices is for our benefit, not God’s, reminding us of our need for Him. Various Old Testament sacrifices prefigured Jesus’ one Sacrifice of Calvary, including the ritual that sealed the Old Covenant and the twice-daily Tamid lamb sacrifices. But none, as we will see, was sufficient in atoning for man’s sins.

8.

On This Bread Alone, Man Shall Live Forever 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_08.mp3

When a priest pronounces the words of consecration, what looks like bread is no longer. Throughout salvation history, God miraculously fed multitudes or individuals on various occasions. But all of these miracles are but pale precursors to the Eucharist, the true “bread from heaven,” which provides life eternal for all who partake of it faithfully.

9.

Jesus Transforms the Passover: Instituting the Eucharist as the New Covenant Communion Sacrifice 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_09.mp3

The Passover lamb is conspicuous by its absence in the Last Supper accounts of the Gospels. Jesus mysteriously offers his body and blood under the appearances of bread and wine, establishing the New Covenant Passover in the process.

10.

Making Heaven a Place on Earth: Jesus as a Priest Forever According to the Order of Melchizedek 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_10.mp3

As the Letter to the Hebrews makes so clear, Jesus ascends to the heavenly sanctuary to culminate his Sacrifice of Calvary in everlasting glory. And, because Jesus is a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek, heaven and earth become one in the holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Paradise is as close as your local parish church!

11.

Symbolic Supper or Sacrifice of Calvary Made Present Again? 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_11.mp3

When St. Paul mentions the “Lord’s Supper,” most Protestant Christians view the ritual as simply a symbolic meal, which recalls Christ’s redemptive work that they believe began and ended on the Cross. Is this doctrinal perspective supported by biblical and other historical evidence? Tune in to find out.

12.

Challenging Questions About the Mass and Eucharist 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_12.mp3

How can Jesus’ limited human body be both present in heaven and on earth, as well as in many places on earth, through the miracle of the Eucharist? On a related note, if Jesus is really present in the Eucharist, why do the consecrated bread and wine still look and taste like ordinary bread and wine? Tom and Father Wade will address these and other challenging questions in this episode.

13.

“Proclaiming the Lord’s Death Until He Comes Again”: The Mass in the Early Church and Beyond 

Host – Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

bibstorymass_13.mp3

Following Jesus’ Resurrection, St. Paul and other scriptural writers affirm the biblical basis of the Mass and Eucharist, as do early Church writers like St. Ignatius of Antioch. We’ll consider these sources, as well as the remarkable story of Julian the Apostate and his divinely thwarted attempt to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.
