Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ, to host Bible Study Show on EWTN

February 28, 2018 — Jesuit priest Father Mitch Pacwa, SJ, will be hosting a new Bible-based show on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) called "Scripture and Tradition." The show will replace one of Fr. Pacwa's previous series "Threshold of Hope."

“I’ve already written a lot of Bible studies that are organized thematically,” says 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 will debut 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," says 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, an M. Div. and S.T.B. degrees in Theology from the Jesuit School of Theology at Loyola University Chicago. Father Mitch previously taught Scripture at Loyola as well as at the University of Dallas, and currently serves 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,” says EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “I am confident our viewers will be excited about this newest 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.

EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 36th year, is the largest religious media network in the world. EWTN’s 11 TV channels are broadcast in multiple languages 24 hours a day, seven days a week to over 275 million television households in more than 145 countries and territories.
