The Dragon-Like Behavior of Three Nations – Chaos Dragon E9
When Israel chooses to act like the chaos monster instead of living like the people of God, God brings judgment on them. How? He sends other bigger monsters after them, namely, Babylon and Egypt. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the scrolls of Jeremiah and Ezekiel and their focus on the dragon-like behavior of these three nations––as well as God’s promise to bring about justice for each and every dragon in the end.
Isaiah and the Dragon – Chaos Dragon E8
What happens when the entire nation of Israel consistently aligns themselves with the dragon? They themselves become a chaos monster Yahweh has to deal with. In this episode, Tim and Jon explore the scroll of Isaiah and the prophet’s indictment of Israel for choices that betray the image and blessing of God they were meant to bring to the world.
David and Goliath the Dragon – Chaos Dragon E7
So often the symbol of the chaos monster shows up embodied by a human bent on oppressing other people. Goliath, one of the Bible’s most well-known bad guys, is depicted as having scaly armor like a snake and defying not just Israel, but Yahweh. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the theme of the dragon in the story of David and Goliath.
Women Who Slayed Dragons – Chaos Dragon E6
In today’s episode, we once again encounter a theme that’s becoming all too familiar: humans becoming chaos monsters. Jabin, king of Canaan, and Sisera, the commander of his army, are depicted as serpents in Judges 4, and the humans who overcome these two dragons are two women, Deborah and Jael. Join Tim and Jon as they explore the theme of the dragon in the scroll of Judges.
Is the Church a City? – The City Q+R 2
Was Cain’s city a good thing initially? If Israel was just as bad as Sodom and Gomorrah, why didn’t God destroy it too? And how will God redeem the city in the new creation? In this episode, Tim and Jon respond to your questions from the second half of The City series. Thank you to our audience for your insightful questions!
Power Over the Dragon in Exodus – Chaos Dragon E5
God created humans to bear his image, but sometimes we choose our own destruction and start to look a lot more like chaos monsters instead. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss a human who the prophets frequently called a sea dragon: the Pharaoh who ruled Egypt and enslaved Israel in the scroll of Exodus. If Pharaoh is the seed of the serpent, who is the seed of the woman in Exodus? Listen in to find out!
An amazing undertaking
This podcast & related project is a huge and amazing undertaking, really well done. Thank you Tim and Jon for your step-by-step in-depth tracing and honest working out of key biblical themes and especially for pointing everything back to Jesus. I stumbled across this podcast by 'chance' (...Holy Spirit!) and am finding it a real encouragement feeding me on both an intellectual and a devotional level. Incredible amounts of work have clearly gone into this so thank you. Do keep the interviews in as well, by the way. The Lord bless you all.
Thank you Trey for continuing with 1st Samuel. Really enjoyed Dr Bass references about Esau and Amalekites and even Haman. It all comes full circle in the Bible.
This pod blesses me more than I can say
Just so good. Thank you thank you thank you!
