Highly recommend!

I have learned so much from this series, especially how everything in the Old Testament, was a prefigurement of Jesus. There were so many “WOW!” moments when certain passages were explained. Fr Kirby’s videos were also very enlightening. I recommend this series for anyone who desires to know more about Scripture. It makes one realize how much God loves us. How He has endured to this day, humanity’s selfishness because He wants us all to be saved and live eternity with Him. —CLukins

This is a gem of a series.

This bible series has been very well done. I love the teachings of Fr. Kirby and have followed him on his Youtube channel for over 2 years. He has a series on the book of Genesis. He is an incredible biblical scholar who skillfully teaches us the moral lessons in God’s Word. This series is very professionally done. The readings in the PDFs are seamlessly integrated to the videos. It’s a great way to get an understanding of God’s work in Redemption.
