St. Michael Catholic Church Easter Sunday
Some 1600 years ago, a man named St. Jerome wrote that rather famous expression that perhaps some of us have heard. What is often surprising to people is that St. Jerome wrote that in a commentary on Isaiah. For those of us who may haven’t been to church in a while, Isaiah is in the Old Testament. In other words, Jerome was telling us that if we’re going to truly understand just who Jesus really is, then we have to know all that was written about him centuries before. We need to know all those events which are recorded in the Old Testament which foreshadow all that he was going to do for us.
