Tim Staples, Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers
is speaking at St. Therese of Carmel in San Diego, Nov. 18!
Mr. Staples defends the real presence of our Lord in the Eucharist using the text of John 6 given in its historical context. According to St. Irenaeus, in the second century, St. John had the Gnostic heretic, Cerinthus, in mind when he penned his Gospel. Tim unlocks the keys to understanding, in this context, why St. John emphasized—1. The Divinity of Christ and his equality with the Father, and 2. The true presence of Christ in the Eucharist—more than any of the other Evangelists. He did so precisely because these were two of the central points Cerinthus and his Gnostic followers denied.
