    37:30 – In the Olivet Discourse, what does Jesus mean when he said some of them would not see death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom? It would seem that they died before the second coming, so wouldn’t that be a failed prophecy?

    51:35 – In a new book, Bart Ehrman claims that Christ didn’t believe in heaven and hell. He also claims that original Christianity did not believe in the soul, but that idea was brought in by the Greeks. Is he correct?

Getting to the truth

Great teaching.

Mayra :-) ,

I’ve learned so much and so will you!

I like that the speakers are respectful to callers asking questions and do a great job of explaining the Catholic Church’s position on various topics. I’ve learned so much about what the Catholic Church teaches from this show.

So Informative

I have listened to Catholic Answers for years now. It’s often though a challenge stay tuned in and undistracted. The current host is very chatty, overly humorous and tends to interrupt the guest speakers with his own comments. It would be most helpful if he toned down his verbosity and stayed out of the way of the speaker and caller.
