The Greatest Story Ever Told Session #22: Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James

(Listen to this session here).

We continue with the letters of the New Testament--the third section in the NT wing of the Biblical library.  This session features St. Paul's third pastoral letter (along with 1 and 2 Timothy) to Titus.  Paul advises Titus in similar ways he advised Timothy.  Philemon is a touching letter featuring 25 verses and three men and one of these being a runaway slave.  Hebrews, possibly an early eucharistic homily, describes Jesus as the fulfillment of the old priesthood, old sacrificial system and old temple.  It is a rich and deep read!  Finally, James' letter describes many facets crucial to our faith--faith and works, wisdom, taming of the tongue and joy through suffering.
