Thank You!

BEMA - thank you so much for this podcast. I heard about it from a friend and we are having a great time listening and talking about it - it's been perfect for this season (COVID) and really causing me to ponder and pray and hopefully become a sheep who listens to the Master's voice. Trusting the story!!

Hi there brothers
On the mobile app only shows the ability to listen the last season. There is no link to start from season 1 like you suggested.

Thank you. Gino

Amazing and insightful

This podcast has changed my whole perspective of the Torah. I used to rush through the books because I didn’t understand them. With the help of BEMA, I now have a much better understanding of the cultural and historical context of the books. More importantly, I now understand God better and who He is and what He represents.

For anyone who has come from a western church, I highly recommend you listen to this. Unfortunately, most of us have been taught things about the Torah, as well as the NT, from a western perspective, which greatly diminishes our ability to understand in context what was being stated as the Hebrew and eastern cultures would’ve interpreted.

Thanks Marty and Brent for all that you put into this podcast. It has truly changed my wife’s and my lives and have given us a much more complete picture of the Bible as a whole.
