Journey Through Scripture: Holy Is His Name

A 12-Part Scripture Study by Scott Hahn


What is holiness? Catholics are taught to prize holiness—to admire it in others and to strive for it in our own lives. But we’re never quite told what holiness is.

Tracing the meaning of holiness first through the Old Testament and then the New, Holy Is His Name unpacks how God gradually transmits his holiness to his people—through creation, right worship, and more—and ultimately transforms them through the sharing of his divine life.

Holy Is His Name is the sixth study in the Journey Through Scripture series. In twelve beautifully produced lessons, Scott Hahn takes us through his quest to define “holiness” as it is found in the Scriptures.

Supplemental readings come from Sacred Scripture, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, and Scott Hahn’s Holy Is His Name: The Transforming Power of God’s Holiness in Scripture.
