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?

    Unschooled and Ordinary | Disruptive Presence 16

    Unschooled and Ordinary | Disruptive Presence 16

    In which John and David discuss how the disciples are seen in Acts 4. The contrast between the lack of the formal training of the disciples with the academic weight of those asking them questions deeply skews the dynamics of their trial. But once again, Acts shows us that the world of the Holy Spirit doesn't work as we'd think.

    Two Different Powers | Disruptive Presence 15

    Two Different Powers | Disruptive Presence 15

    In which John and David discuss Acts chapter 4. The follow up from the miracle in chapter 3 leaves the early Christians positioned between the power of God and the earthly authorities - how should they navigate this?

    Finding Jesus in Everything | Disruptive Presence 14

    Finding Jesus in Everything | Disruptive Presence 14

    In which John and David discuss Peter's teaching to the temple crowd in Acts 3. What does this sermon tell us about how the early Christians saw the story of Jesus and how it shaped their view of the world?

    Look at Us | Disruptive Presence 13

    Look at Us | Disruptive Presence 13

    In which John and David get to chapter 3 of Acts! Peter and John arrive at the temple and encounter someone who needs their help. How has the Holy Spirit impact their lives in such a way that they engage with the needs of others?

    2:42 Learning to Grow as Community | Disruptive Presence 12

    2:42 Learning to Grow as Community | Disruptive Presence 12

    In which John and David consider the implications of what the Holy Spirit did to life for the Early Christians. Acts 2:42 shows us how they had balanced and holistic view of what being in community meant for them. It might even be that they knew some things about Christian community that we have forgotten!

    Holy and Mundane | Disruptive Presence 11

    Holy and Mundane | Disruptive Presence 11

    In which John and David look at the results of the Holy Spirit arriving in Acts 2. We note that often we say "the Holy Spirit came and everyone spoke in other languages!" But is that all that happened? What if we looked more closely and saw that there was, maybe, still more that the Spirit was doing?
