As Christians, we are privileged to pray "Our Father." This beautiful prayer was given to us by Jesus Himself and has been called many things over the centuries - the Pater Noster, the Lord's Prayer, the Model Prayer, the Perfect Prayer and the Disciple's Prayer. But whatever you call it, the Our Father is of paramount importance because as the centerpiece of the greatest sermon ever given - the Sermon on the Mount - it is in this teaching that Jesus first revealed the Fatherhood of God.
Discover the Inner Logic of the Lord's Prayer
In this brand new three-tape (or CD) series, Our Father Revealed: The Biblical Theology of the Lord's Prayer, you'll discover the incredible depth of meaning contained in this often recited, but rarely pondered prayer. The fruit of three years' research and reflection, Scott Hahn's absorbing study reveals the "inner logic" of the Lord's Prayer and uncovers rich Biblical theology that most Christians simply miss when reciting these familiar verses.
In tape one, "From Heir to Eternity," Dr. Hahn unravels the seven tightly packed petitions contained in the Lord's Prayer. Now you'll be able to recognize how the Our Father's structure marvelously reveals Jesus' two deepest concerns on earth: intimately conversing with His Heavenly Father and sharing His own Divine Sonship with us.
In "Send in the Crowns," Dr. Hahn continues to build upon this firm foundation by addressing how the petitions are arranged in a purposeful sequence leading up to the Holy Eucharist - our daily bread. This intimate connection between the Lord's Prayer and the Eucharistic Kingdom, confirmed in the writings of the Fathers and the Doctors, will culminate when the Lord returns in glory. Until then, we must fully and freely conform our will to the Father's will in perfect imitation of Jesus.
The final tape, "Tempted but Delivered," examines the Biblical concept of sin, showing how by reflecting upon our own sinfulness, we come to experience the infinite mercy of God. Only in this way can God's forgiveness flow into us and flow through us so that we can forgive the trespasses of others. We especially need to discover this important lesson to resist temptation and to overcome the scandal that has recently rocked the Church.
