    #215 Should we take the devil seriously?

    #215 Should we take the devil seriously?

    A bit of a twist today as we answer listener's questions that have come in asking: are we meant to take Satan literally? Join Tom Wright as he unravels some of the intricate threads of the New and Old Testaments to uncover the biblical portrayal of the devil. We're looking at some of the questions and looking at biblical passages where Jesus confronts and challenges the forces of darkness, asking what role does the Devil play in affecting ministry and what power does Satan really have? Do we over-think the devil and the supernatural when we avoid heavy metal music, particular pop stars or ban Harry Potter books - where is the line between genuine caution and a kind of 'satanic panic'? What practices should we avoid that should be recognised as 'evil'? And remembering Jesus' ultimate defeat of Satan and death on the cross.
    Enjoy this thought-provoking discussion that we hope sheds some light on this complex and often misunderstood (or sometimes avoided) topic of 'evil', 'satan' and 'the devil'.

A master teacher

NT Wright is a scholar who presents his knowledge and wisdom in a simple way that most people can understand and learn. I’ve read most of Wright’s books and these podcasts amplify his knowledge for non-readers especially.

Thanks for faithfulness.

Very Inspired and Thorough

I have learned so much about the meaning of scripture through the extensive knowledge of Tom Wright. There are always a few questions about verses that seem as though they could go either way. Tom helps clarify these often difficult and confusing topics. Justin Brierley helps select the questions with his own knowledge and experience to help make a well balanced show and allow Tom time to dig deeper into the subject. I absolutely love how personable this show is and feel as if I’m sitting on their sofa joining in on the conversation.
