Making Sense of Divine Violence
There’s a lot of violence in the Old Testament, but isn’t God loving? How do we make sense of all this? In this episode, we are exploring a few key things to keep in mind while looking at the topic of violence in the Bible.
Note to parents: The terms genocide, child sacrifice, sexual fertility rituals, and sex slavery are used in this episode. Before listening with your child, consider if they are ready to be introduced to these concepts and if you are prepared to carefully answer any follow-up questions they may have.
Understanding Ancient Laws
How can we understand the ancient laws in the Old Testament? And what’s the point of reading them today? In this episode, we are learning how to read the ancient laws that God gave to Israel and reflecting on how they can impact our choices today.
God's Wisdom on Display
Why did God give his people so many rules? In this episode, we’re reflecting on the wisdom and purpose of God's commands.
Trusting God in the Wilderness
How does fear hold us back from experiencing God’s promises? In this episode, we reflect on God's trustworthy character and how he responds when his people fail to trust and follow him.
Gift of Rest
In today’s episode, we’re reflecting on the meaning and importance of rest. As we explore the biblical concept of Sabbath and the ancient festival of Jubilee, we’ll find wisdom and principles that are still relevant for us today.
Meaning of Sacrifice
In today’s reflection, we are exploring the biblical theme of sacrifice and atonement. It can feel strange and uncomfortable at first, but as we learn more, we’ll discover just how life-giving and powerful this biblical theme is.

A little pocket of spirit led study
I’ve just listened to the episode about rest, it has been part of a few prompts from the Holy Spirit telling me to rest. It was great to listen to because it dives deep into the meaning of rest and sabbath in the biblical context. It brought greater realisation and depth to all the other resting prompts I have been given. Love these reflections and Cheree’s voice is so soothing and cheerful :)
Short but not lacking
These are lovely and short but lack no depth, it’s an enjoyable little nugget for my day. I love it
Beautiful, powerful and wholesome
The Bible Project’s theology-focused conversation podcasts have always appealed to me, but this is something new and brilliant. Quiet and stilling, I find it easy to look inside and connect with the Holy Spirit in me, challenging and encouraging and loving me. This podcast is not hard to engage with, the soundscape is wonderful, and the narration is professional. It leaves me feeling a little bit more whole as a human. Thank you yet again, Bible Project.
