Kenny chats with Rev Nick Crawley about engaging with the Bible in meaningful ways and how this grounds our discipleship.
Matt and Kenny discussed passages in the Old Testament like the flood and the conquest of Canaan, that on the surface contain moments of troubling violence. But Matt contends that a closer and slower reading of passages like these can actually reveal a critique of violence and show us more of the goodness and mercy of God. We hope this episode will help bring some clarity to some of the difficult questions raised when we read the Old Testament, particularly in light of the God we see revealed in Jesus Christ.
For our Christmas special, Kenny and Lucy chat with Tim Mackie, from the Bible Project, about his journey from being purely a biblical scholar, to gaining a deeper understanding of Christology and the early church fathers and mothers, and how it plays such a significant part in shaping and influencing our faith.
Tobias and Kenny talk about how developing an awareness of the interplay between New Testament and Hebrew scriptures with regards to literary and narrative links can open our eyes to fresh ways of understanding the biblical text for our world. This episode includes a BONUS blog post!
