I want to thank the men of the “Catholic Men’s Retreat” of Wyoming for inviting me to speak to them about one my favorite subjects… typology! In this series of 6 lectures we attempted to examine the question… why did Jesus have to suffer and die just to redeem us from our sin. If Jesus is God, then why not just will our redemption? To go through so much for us, the mocking, the stripes of the scourging, the crown of thorns, the out-pouring of his blood, being cut off from his people and nailed to a tree… there must have been a very good reason. In the seeking the answer to this question we endeavor to become the “Man in the Garden!”
This week on “Behold The Man”, being inspired by an article From Jean Cardinal Danielou, S.J. entitled: “The Sacraments And the History of Salvation”; we dive deep into the living-flowing waters of creation, cleansing and redemption to find the power and beauty of the Sacrament of Baptisim!
This week on “Behold The Man”, we look back through the mountain and mediators of Salvation history to see what they all had in common. Then we look at how it is all perfected in the NEW mountain, the ROCK of St. Peter.

Today, on “Behold the Man” we look at Genesis 28 & the mysterious encounter Jacob had with a ladder reaching up to heaven. It’s fulfillment is found in Christ, the Temple and the Priesthood. Jacob receives the blessing of Abraham from God himself and yet still try’s to keep his options open.
Today on “Behold The Man”, we ask the question; did Jesus come to do something completely new? Or, did was His plan constant from the beginning? I argue that his plan for Salvation has been the same from the beginning and he has perfected the old in the new… thereby making all things new. We will look at the structure, worship, and fulfillment of the old into the new.
Today on Behold The Man, we dive a little deeper into St. Luke 15:11-32 & St. John 4 as we see how much Our Father has great love for his children. We also see how the “Prodigal Son” & the “Woman at the Well” were also direct encounters with God in bringing back together his family, the Jews & the Israelite’s, the chosen people of God. Its a beautiful scene of the vastness of God’s mercy for us all!

“The way to the tree of life” By Joe McClane My entire life, even growing up in the Church of Christ Sunday school, when I thought of Jesus’ passion and death, I have thought of him as a helpless victim. The weak, beaten, emaciated, frail, man who was dragged through the streets of Jerusalem, taken […]
