The better we understand Jesus, the better we understand ourselves. But who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom many called the Messiah? In Priest, Prophet, King, you'll discover Jesus as the Anointed One-the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Father Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
This deeply biblical program, filmed in high-definition video, features an accompanying study guide by notable Catholic writer and apologist, Carl Olson, written under Fr. Barron's direction. (Carl also wrote the study guide for the CATHOLICISM formation program.)
Through this presentation of Priest, Prophet, King, you will better understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission.

Additional materials for this program include:
• Leader's Guide (Facilitator Guide; six lessons and Answer Key)
• Study Guide (six lessons for participants) View a sample of the study guide.
Each small group discussion leader should have the Leader's Guide and each participant should have his/her own copy of the Study Guide.
A complete session plan and other program advice is outlined in the Facilitator’s Guide, which is part of the Leader’s Guide. Each DVD segment is 20 minutes long and the discussion should be planned for 60-70 minutes, so each lesson can be covered in a total of 90 minutes. Participants should read the commentary in the study guide and prepare the Questions for Understanding and the Questions for Application before the small group discussion. This preparation can be accomplished either before or after they view the DVD, as the commentary in each lesson is very detailed.
