Questions Covered:

  • 03:35 - What does Matthew 24:24 mean? 
  • 08:53 - Did Abraham think that he was going to sacrifice Isaac? 
  • 13:42 - What is the Catholic perspective on land promises to the Jews in the book of Jeremiah? 
  • 18:46 - Why don’t Catholics celebrate Jewish festivals like the early Church did? 
  • 24:15 - Is it ever moral to prescribe contraception as a nurse practitioner?

  • 36:00 - I just graduated high school. What pointers do you have for future apologists? 
  • 46:08 - How can an all-knowing God create a human knowing that some people will not accept him, banishing them for eternity? 
  • 52:46 - In iconography, Jesus seems to be making a gesture by joining his thumb, ring, and little fingers. What is the purpose of this? Would it be acceptable to make the sign of peace like this?
