    "In the form of God"

    "In the form of God"

    In this episode, instead of a high level overview, we delve deep into one specific passage, the "in the form of God" verse in Philippians 2, to explore the possible nuanced interpretations. Josh Dean and Dan Weatherall consider this complex and much debated passage. Focusing on what it means for Jesus to be "in the form of God", they navigate through various translations, interpretations, and biblical contexts to uncover the essence of this pivotal scripture. Join them as they attempt to demystify one of the most important and challenging sections in the letter to the Philippians, shedding light on its implications for understanding Jesus and the message of personal service it conveys to believers.

    Introduction to John's Gospel

    Introduction to John's Gospel

    In this episode Dan and Paul embark on an exploration of John's Gospel, unraveling its sense of majesty and mystery right from the opening verses. They discuss the unique structure and content of John's Gospel, comparing it to the Synoptic Gospels—Matthew, Mark, and Luke—highlighting its distinct opening, key themes, and the explicit purpose stated in John's narrative. They delve into the significance of belief, the role of witnessing, and the powerful symbolism of water and blood, offering a compelling argument for understanding John’s Gospel as a carefully selected collection of events aimed at strengthening the reader's faith in Jesus as the Messiah. Tune in to this episode for an insightful high-level overview of one of the most profound texts in the New Testament.

    Is Christianity relevant?

    Is Christianity relevant?

    Dan and Jon discuss the relevance and impact of Christianity in the modern world. They delve into how aspects of Christianity have influenced society, not only in superficial ways like our calendar, but in deeper things such as values, moral codes, and societal norms. The hosts reference various sources, including notable historians and authors like Tom Holland and Yuval Noah Harari, asserting that many fundamental beliefs and values in Western society, such as the sanctity of life and the concept of equality, have their roots in Christian teachings. That may make Christianity relevant in modern society, but does it make it true?

    Intertextuality

    Intertextuality

    In our first episode of 2024 Paul and Dan talk about "intertextuality" - basically, how the meaning of a text is influenced by references to other texts. The Bible (not surprisingly) is full of links between its 66 books. But how far can we take this? Can we go too far and see patterns where there are none (like seeing the face of Jesus in a slice of toast)?!  What guardrails might we have to make sure we read responsibly?

    Have yourself a lesser known Christmas story!

    Have yourself a lesser known Christmas story!

    Relaunching the podcast, Dan and Laurence celebrate by pondering a lesser known Christmas story. They encounter Simeon, Anna and a community of people in the temple at Jerusalem "waiting for the consolation of Israel". As the baby is held high by Simeon, they realise that the birth of Jesus is not only deeply rooted in a backstory, but is the climax of a centuries old narrative. Complete with mystery deaths and incomplete sentences, this is an invitation to have yourself a lesser known Christmas story!

Well-informed friendly chat

I almost feel in the room. From long and sad experience, I can say that these guys are regularly more gracious, reasonable and thought-provoking than most of the ‘orthodox evangelical’ talking heads, who dismiss Christadelphians as lost cultists. Even when I disagree, I can respect these men. I will even overlook that they don’t speak proper American.

Real people. Real Bible

This podcast is great for an introduction to the Bible and it’s themes. The hosts are genuine and relatable. Sound quality gets better as time goes on so the content is worth the listen.

I really enjoy the conversational style of the host and guests and feel like their willingness to talk through all of the angles of a topic provide a lot of credibility in my mind. Would strongly recommend this to friends who are Christians or anyone interested in learning more about the Bible!
