Hahn: STUDY GUIDE FOR THE LAMB'S SUPPER

study session 1 Foreword by Father Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R. Summary and Key Points

•This book brings together several powerful spiritual realities.

•Eschatology is the study of “last things.”

•It is important that we conduct our study with a proper sense of the sacraments.

At my invitation, Father Benedict Groeschel wrote a foreword to The Lamb’s Supper. Father Benedict approaches the subject of the book from a very different perspective. He is a priest and I’m a layman. Father Benedict is a “cradle Catholic” and I’m a convert. Yet we converge upon a common faith; and, for very different reasons, we see a clear relationship between three realities that many people see as distinct or even unrelated: the Mass, the end times, and the Book of Revelation.

Father Benedict emphasizes the contrast between his own experience and mine. For me, the book is all about exciting “discoveries” I made in my studies. For him, the book is about an everyday reality he has known since he was an altar boy. These elucidations are not a novelty to him, but rather what he has “thought about the Eucharist for decades.”

Father Benedict also emphasizes certain things that are distinctive about Catholic doctrine and practice. He refuses, for example, to classify the Mass as a religious “service,” preferring terms such as “Divine Liturgy” instead. Similarly, he speaks of his own priesthood as a share in the priesthood of Christ, who is our only true priest.

He is especially concerned with the “sacramental” quality of the Church’s worship. According to tradition, a sacrament is an outward sign, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church. Through signs that can be perceived by the senses, the sacraments bestow divine grace.

Father Benedict notes that many people are disturbed by the prospect of the end of time, but he is himself at ease with the possibility of its fulfillment in his lifetime or its indefinite delay.

Along the way, he introduces us to certain key terms, such as eschatology, the Church’s doctrine of the end of time. He encourages us to study “carefully” and “learn.”

Scripture

Revelation 4:8–11; 5:9–14; 7:10–12; 19:1–8

Doctrine

Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2642: The Revelation of “what must soon take place,” the Apocalypse, is borne along by the songs of the heavenly liturgy but also by the intercession of the “witnesses” (martyrs). The prophets and the saints, all those who were slain on earth for their witness to Jesus, the vast throng of those who, having come through the great tribulation, have gone before us into the Kingdom, all sing the praise and glory of him who sits on the throne, and of the Lamb. In communion with them, the Church on earth also sings these songs with faith in the midst of trial. By means of petition and intercession, faith hopes against all hope and gives thanks to the “Father of lights,” from whom “every perfect gift” comes down. Thus faith is pure praise.

Song

COME, DIVINE INTERPRETER

By Charles Wesley

(To the tune of “For the Beauty of the Earth”)

Come, divine Interpreter,

Bring me eyes your book to read,

Ears the mystic words to hear,

Words which did from you proceed,

Words that endless bliss impart,

Kept in an obedient heart.

All who read, or hear, are blessed,

If your plain commands we do;

Of your kingdom here possessed,

You we shall in glory view

When you come on earth to abide,

Reign triumphant at your side.

Questions for Reflection and Discussion

1.Before reading this book, had you ever connected the Mass with the end times and the Book of Revelation? Had anyone ever made the connection for you?

2.How, do you think (or would you guess), are these three things related?

3.Is your own experience of the Mass closer to that of Father Benedict Groeschel or that of the author of this book? Or does your experience share elements of both? Explain your answer.

4.How do you feel about the possibility of the world ending? What hopes or fears does it arouse in you?

5.What, do you think, separates a sacrament from a mere “service” of the sort Father Benedict mentions?

6.What will you look for in your study of “the end times”—your study of eschatology? What are your interests, concerns, expectations, or worries about the climax of history?

7.Have you ever had an experience at Mass that you considered a glimpse or foretaste of heaven? Has anyone you know had such an experience?

Getting the study guide became a good reason to re-read The Lamb's Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth. The book presents the Book of Revelation in it's connection to the Mass in that the key to unlocking so many strange symbols is the liturgy. This is more than just of thesis of Dr. Scott Hahn. He discovered this independently only to find that it was a thread of teaching in the Church Fathers and some once again presented in the Second Vatican Council. Scott Hahn is adept at presenting deep theological truths in bite-sized chunks without watering down the information presented. Re-reading The Lamb's Supper reminded me of many elements that I had half-forgot and really want to keep uppermost in my mind when it comes the the liturgy.

As for the study guide itself, it is a nice companion to the book. Each section following the book starts with a solid summary of the chapter itself, followed by related doctrinal statements, a hymn, and then a series of questions/reflections on the contents. These questions were written by the always great Mike Aquilina.

I am usually not impressed by study guides and their usefulness, but this is not the case here. While it could be used on a personal level, it is in the group setting that it would shine. I would really recommend it for youth groups, adult continuing formation, home school families etc. You can easily have people read the chapter ahead of time and then read aloud the summary which will both remind people of what they read, but also help in emphasizing and memory retention. The doctrinal component from the Catechism and a range of Church documents and other sources really connects the chapters with what the Church teaches.

This isn't a very big book but it took me a few days to get through it, because I kept going back to the book of Revelation to try and clear in my mind what he was alluding to. I enjoyed his interpretation on what he feels the book of Revelation really means, because I think GOD ALONE knows just what John was experiencing while writing Revelation, it is so bizarre. I do hope Mr. Hahn is right because that means for me personally, I'm on the right track. I love the Mass, and receiving the Eucharist. I am a Eucharistic minister for the homebound and hospitalized, and have experienced wonderful stories from these people which certainly elevates my faith.

Having just finished facilitating the St. Paul Center Bible Study, "The Bible and the Mass," which has "The Lamb's Supper" as its recommended text, I found this study guide a very valuable supplement to the book and the presentation materials. Each chapter corresponds to a chapter in the original book. All follow the same format. They begin with three bulleted "key points" followed by a 1-2 page summary. Several related scripture references provide solid foundation for the material. A "doctrine" section provides supporting material through quotes from one or more of the CCC, the Fathers, Church documents, or contemporary churchmen. A song, usually familiar or with a familiar tune provide beauty and inspiration (singing along, even to yourself, is encouraged). Closing out each chapter are seven "questions for reflection and discussion" followed by recommended reading from some of Dr. Hahn's other books. These questions, developed by popular author Mike Aquilina, are really the key to this small book. Whether reading "The Lamb's Supper" on one's own, working through it in a group setting, or using it as part of a larger Bible study, these questions serve to really drive the material home by focusing on its relevance to and impact on the reader's own life. Armed with this book one need not hesitate in starting a study of his own, alone or by inviting others, even if he has no intention on providing additional material or questions.

A great refresher course and many solid reasons on
how and why to follow the Mass. Scott has his act
together and I believe he practices whatever he
preaches and writes. This could help get you to that
next level with the Lord. There is nothing in life more
important than your soul and the soul of others.
God continue to bless this man and whoever takes
the journey to be a better Christian in the Lord Jesus.

I haven't gotten too far into the study guide as of yet. There's a wealth of information in the book and I have spoken with friends who are going to purchase the book; then the study guide will come into play as a teaching guide. With all the "good stuff" in the book, I will have to read it a couple of more times to get the full impact of Scott's writings. As a convert from Presbyterian, I am overwhelmed with joy at the Jewish roots in my faith.

Excellent connection of the Catholic Mass with the early Christians understanding of the New Testament, explaining that the mystical visions of heaven found in revelation can shed light on the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist. Great for individual, RICA, or group study. With this study, Scott Hahn adds summary and key points, scriptural references, excerpts from Church teachings, songs of praise, and questions for reflection and discussion for each section of THE LAMBS SUPPER, The Mass as Heaven on Earth, his best selling work.

Scott Hahn in his TV discussions on this subject is completely full of joy and enthusiasm as he takes us from the Old Testament worship development to the New Testament worship, and then explains many symbols and songs found in the Book of Revelation. They are prayed and sung in today's Lamb's Supper, the Catholic Mass, and most of we Catholics do not even understand or know this.
This is a must buy companion book as well as purchasing the Lamb's Supper- The Mass as Heaven on Earth, by Scott Hahn. I have already purchased a second set, as I gave the first one away to my daughter.
