Fr. Michael Pacwa, SJ
Jesuits Hosts New Bible Study Show on EWTN

March 6, 2018 — Jesuit Father Mitch Pacwa is hosting a new Bible-based show, "Scripture and Tradition," that debuts today on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). The show replaces one of Fr. Pacwa's previous series "Threshold of Hope."

“I’ve already written a lot of Bible studies that are organized thematically,” said Fr. Pacwa. “So we’re going to start off with my book, ‘Winning the Battle Against Sin,’ which deals with Biblical teaching on sin and forgiveness. After that, I’d like to counterbalance that with my Bible study called 'Saved,' which tackles the theme of salvation. I’ve also done Bible studies on the life of Christ. We’ll be taking his ministry step by step. Another approach I hope to take is to study the individual books of the Bible, starting with Isaiah and then Jeremiah and other books of the Bible.”

The weekly show debuted on March 6 at 2 p.m. ET with encores at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesdays and 9 a.m. ET on Wednesdays. Fr. Pacwa will discuss Scripture and early church documents that "illuminate the way we understand the Bible," said EWTN President Doug Keck, who helped create the show.

Fr. Pacwa is a prolific writer and holds a Ph.D. in Old Testament from Vanderbilt University and Master of Divinity and Bachelor of Sacred Theology degrees from Loyola University Chicago. Fr. Pacwa previously taught Scripture at Loyola Chicago as well as at the University of Dallas, and he currently serves as a Senior Fellow at the St. Paul Institute for Biblical Studies.

“For over three decades, Fr. Mitch Pacwa has been a favorite of EWTN audiences around the globe,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “I am confident our viewers will be excited about this new program, which plays to Fr. Mitch’s strength as a Scripture scholar.”

Viewers will be able to post questions for Fr. Pacwa on EWTN's Facebook page. [Source: Midwest Jesuits]
