Where do we find the Mass in the Bible? What is the relationship between the two? In ten beautifully produced lessons, Parousia: The Bible and the Mass answers these questions and more.

In the latest video Bible study from the St. Paul Center, discover why the liturgy is a major theme that runs through the entire Bible, from Genesis to the Book of Revelation. We will not only look to the Law, the Prophets, and life and teachings of Jesus, we’ll also lean on the Doctors of the Church to enhance our understanding of the Mass. We’ll see how the New Testament is concealed in the Old,  the Old is revealed in the New, and why both point directly to the Mass, the sign of the New Covenant.

Join host Scott Hahn to uncover how and why all of God’s action, in creation and redemption, is ordered to the Mass.

This full-color study guide will inspire you with its beautiful imagery and life-changing message. Enter more fully into the study with saint quotes on the Eucharist, review notes, reflection questions, additional Scripture readings and practical tips to delve deeper into the Mass. You’ll want to revisit it again and again.

  1. Marilyn E Harmyk

    watched the Parousia: The Bible and the Mass. I very much enjoyed and learned so much about the Mass and correlation with the old and new testament. I also got the book but was very disappointed with it. For the cost of the book I was expecting more of what was said in the video. There was so much information I really wanted to be able to go back and read again and highlight parts of it. But the book fell short of this. I am not able to put our $100 for the video and felt like I spent $25 for a book that had so little in comparing to the amount of info that was in the Video.

    Thank you for this program! Amazing and really helpful! I am wondering if an electronic version can be made available to U.S. residents as well? I had been using electronic versions of books so it is easy to carry around anywhere without having to bring the print version. Please let me know if I can purchase an electronic copy instead of a print copy.

      Sorry, at this time, we are only making it available outside the U.S. due to the time and expense of international shipping, but I will pass on your request to our director of lay programs.

    Dr. Hahn, I was first introduced to your books in our Women’s Bible class. We incorporated your book on the gospel of John as a learning guide. It was so well written and it made it easier for us to learn . All us women were so happy to know that you were the writer. But when I watch your presentation you gave today on the Parousia and the Mass it was so beautiful and elegantly spoken. It was like the Holy Spirit spoke through you to my heart. I love have you made the comparison on how the New Testament was concealed in the Old Testament and the old was revealed in the new. I’ll never look at mass the same way again. I’m sure the work you have done for GOD and his church he will be well pleased. Thank you for sharing these wonderful lessons. Now I want to be a good disciple and share the good news to everyone!!! Blessings and hugs to you and Mrs. Hahn.

    Estoy muy agradecida por darme la oportunidad de seguir esta maravillosa serie en Semana Santa. He sido católica toda mi vida pero hasta hoy no he sabido apreciar el esplendor de la Misa, ustedes han hecho un trabajo impresionante, de gran belleza y profundo contenido. Solo puedo agradecer a Dios por ponerlos en mi camino. Bendiciones

  6. Linda Condon

    Though I am a product of a Catholic high school and a Catholic college, Parousia has added immeasurably to my understanding of and appreciation for the Mass. Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Hahn. Linda Condon

  7. Pat Hawkins

    I love this esp. chapter 9 which I think explained a lot about eucharist. But my husband could not hear this video , he is pretty deaf even with hearing aides. it certainly would be nice if you could have the words you said all written as he needs to see & read your explanations…so would any deaf person. A study guide is not enough,,he & others like him need to SEE if all. thanks Pat

      Hi, Pat. The videos include closed captions (English, Spanish, and Romanian). If you’re streaming the videos, look for the [CC] button in the lower right.

  8. Mabel Perlas

    Dr. Scott & your bride Kimberly are truly a great blessing to the Catholic Church.
    I am a cradle catholic , going to Mass every Sunday all my life, but never connected the Mass & the Bible the way you amazingly presented. The Parousia – The Bible and the Mass will not only stay in my head but in my heart from now on.
    Thank you very much and I pray that all catholics will have the opportunity to listen to your teaching on the Bible & the Mass.
    Thank you for offering this on PDF that is affordable.

  9. Robin Enochs

    Thank you Dr Scott Hahn. I’ve learned so much from you and your ministry. God Bless you and keep you.

  10. Cathy Zimmerman

    I am loving this presentation by Scott Hahn. Love your books & you have helped me dive more deeply into my faith & understand it much better. Thank you for all you do for the Catholic faith.

    Question: Does this Study book contain everything you said in listening to the free Parousia presentation?

    • Louis

      The Study Guide is meant to be a supplement to the videos to enrich your study, but doesn’t replace the videos. So, it has things like review notes, reflection questions, and suggested additional readings, but it doesn’t contain a transcript of the videos.

  11. Jan Militello

    A wonderful, step-by-step study which reveals the Truth, the beauty and the saturated Biblical nature of the Mass.

  12. Ignacio

    Great! How can I get the digital version?

    I was so happy to listen to Dr. Scott Hahn. I’m a cradle Catholic and a faithful one too. But listening to him made so much difference to me. it has enhanced my mass experience and I would want to shout it out to the world. I had encountered many people contradicting my Catholic Faith and it was so difficult to answer their allegations until I read Dr. Hahn’s books and now this, the mass and the bible. Dr. Scott and his wife Kimberly are gifts to the church such as other converts to Catholicism that I know ( Dr. Taylor Marshall and Abby Johnson). May God bless you and your family more

  14. Bev

    This is one of the best Bible studies on the Mass. Scott Hahn is very knowledgeable and gets his points across clearly. It is a great choice for a Lenten Bible Study..

  15. md.montenegro44

    I am loving it.
    It is so fascinating to learn from Scott Hahn the mysteries of God’s plan revealed in the Bible.
    God bless!

  16. Maria Garcia Silva

    I have read Dr. Scott’s books, but this is one of his best developments. I appreciate the clarity of his outlining and the profound love he shows for our Catholic faith. Dr. Scott has a particular angle that goes deeply on hard questions that even us as cradle catholics have had. Needless to say, in splendor he is a researcher, a seeker, a believer. Wonderful work! I cannot wait for the next lesson to be posted.

  17. Daniel Orozco

    Estoy siguiendo el curso desde Japón, en mi caso lo sigo gracias a los subtítulos en español ya que mi nivel de inglés no es muy alto.
    ¿Es posible adquirir el documento en español?

    Muchas gracias por su actividad y por su fidelidad al Señor.
    Recientemente he podido leer el libro “Roma dulce hogar” y me he conmovido y emocionado muchísimo.
    Dios les bendiga siempre.

    • raquellopez

      ¡Qué bueno que lo está disfrutando Daniel! En estos momentos estamos viendo lo del cuaderno para el estudio en español. Creo que para el otoño lo tendremos listo. Lo que si puedo enviarle es el documento de los subtítulos si cree que le sea útil.

  23. Mabel Kan

    thank you for the opportunity to join for free this study. I envisage it will help us have a greater understanding of the Mass and so love it more!

    It will be good to have the study guide but think too expensive for overseas participant like myself and you may not even ship overseas. But grateful to know a digital version is available soon. Looking forward to that.

    Blessings to all of you at St Paul Center and all participants.

    I’ve been reading the books by Scott. They have become my study books as well as they are rooted in the Word of God.

    Looking forward to the new episodes during the Holy Season of Lent.

  28. Veronica Robles

    Thank you to the St Paul Center for this project. I’m looking forward for the study.

  29. Rosa E Mendoza

    You have been a blessing to my catholic faith.
    I thank God for coming across your teachings.I was born in the catholic faith but all of a sudden I found my self doubting if it was the correct religion.
    I blame listening to a Christian radio station for my doubts, they can be very convincing.
    But thank God that I came across your teaching and now I feel that my faith has grown and I understand it much better.
    I thank God and you for strengthening and understanding my catholic faith.
    All of your material is absolutely amazing.
    Thank you!

  30. Rachel Diaz

    Love Scott & Kimberly Hahn. They are such a blessing to our Catholic Faith.
