A Podcast about the Bible
Every two weeks, from two different countries, the two hosts of the Two Texts podcast pick two biblical texts to talk about.
Dr John Andrews and Dr David Harvey share a mutual fascination with the Bible. Simple yet complex; ancient yet relevant; challenging yet comforting. But one thing that fascinates them consistently is that, like a kaleidoscope, no matter how many times they look at it there is something new, fresh and exciting to talk about.
This podcast is designed for you regardless of how much or how little you've read the Bible. Grab a hot beverage, a notepad (or app), and a Bible, sit back, listen, enjoy, and learn to also become fascinated (or grow your fascination) with this exciting, compelling and mysterious book. John and David are two friends who love teaching the Bible and have both been privileged enough to be able to spend their careers doing this - in colleges, universities, churches, homes and coffee shops. The two of them have spent extended periods of time as teaching staff and leadership in seminary and church contexts. John has regularly taught at David's church, and there was even a point where John was David's boss!
Nowadays David is a Teaching Pastor in Calgary, Canada, and John teaches and consults for churches in the UK and around the world. They're both married with children (John 3, David 1) and in John's case even a grandchild. In their down time you'll find them cooking, reading, running or watching football (but the one thing they don't agree on is which team to support).
If you want to get in touch with either of them about something in the podcast you can reach out on podcast@twotexts.com or by liking and following the Two Texts podcast on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. If you enjoy the podcast, we’d love it if you left a review or comment where you’re listening from – and if you really enjoyed it, why not share it with a friend?

    Table Service | Disruptive Presence 25

    Table Service | Disruptive Presence 25

    In which John and David explore how the apostles navigate a difficult tension inside the new church. Racial tensions abound for the young community as they attempt to live out the justice of Jesus. Their solutions are innovative, creative and worth paying attention to.

    Gamaliel | Disruptive Presence 24

    Gamaliel | Disruptive Presence 24

    In which John and David discuss how a Pharisee saves the apostles and makes some good points for all our lives. As the Apostles encounter some objections to the work they are part of, not everyone knows what to do with them. The Pharisee Gamaliel, however, offers a way forward that might help us think about things today too.

    Go, Stand, Speak | Disruptive Presence 23

    Go, Stand, Speak | Disruptive Presence 23

    In which John and David discuss how the Apostles respond to tensions around their activities in Jerusalem. Not everyone was excited about the work the Holy Spirit was doing in the Early Church. How will Peter and the others respond?

    Who is the Protagonist? | Disruptive Presence 22

    Who is the Protagonist? | Disruptive Presence 22

    In which John and David talk about Peter's shadow. In Acts you could be forgiven for thinking that the Apostles are making some impressive things happen. But in chapter 5 we see that something else is driving this story. Or rather, someone else.

    At the Apostles' Feet | Disruptive Presence 21

    At the Apostles' Feet | Disruptive Presence 21

    In which John and David discuss the slightly disturbing story of Ananias and Sapphira. The early church has begun in charity and commonality, how would it respond when that was challenged. And how would the Holy Spirit? What can we learn from a story that at first glance seems more than a little troubling.

    The Blessing is the Giving | Disruptive Presence 20

    The Blessing is the Giving | Disruptive Presence 20

    In which John and David discuss the deep generosity of the disciples in Acts. Exploring how they lived out the call of Jesus (and Torah), we discuss the disciples' behaviour and attitude towards the poor.

Old Rhodesian ,

Did he just spit?

I have just listened to “Did He just spit”, wow! wow! How precious is that word to me. It has not just made me understand a conundrum of a potential failed miracle but more preciously, made me hunger for more of a growing revelation of my precious Jesus. Thank you guys and thank you Holy Spirit for understanding your message. Rob Cleminson
