A podcast by 9Marks, with Alex Duke, Sam Emadi & Jim Hamilton.
Leviticus 21-25: On Sacred Time and Sacred Space (Bible Talk, Ep. 41)
In the Old Testament, the Lord wants his people to be holy as he is holy (Lev. 20:26). That means sacred lives, but it also means he them to be marked of by sacred times and sacred places.
Alex chats with Jim and Sam about Leviticus 21–25.
Leviticus 17-20: On Goat Demons and the Golden Rule (Bible Talk, Ep. 40)
Leviticus 17–20 covers a lot: goat demons, the meaning of blood, Molech, the holiness of God, and loving your neighbor as yourself. How does it all fit together?
Leviticus 16: On the Pinnacle of the Pentateuch (Bible Talk, Ep. 39)
For a while now, Jim and Sam have been saying that Leviticus 16—the Day of the Atonement—is the theological center of the Torah. In this episode, they finally defend their case.
Leviticus 11–15: On Why You Can Step on Bugs and Eat Rock Badger Nuggets—And Still Go to Church (Bible Talk, Ep. 38)
In Leviticus, uncleanness results from death. That’s the big idea of Leviticus 11–15 and its discussion of chewing the cud, leprosy, and bodily discharges.
Alex Duke chats with Jim Hamilton and Sam Emadi about the next section of Leviticus.
Leviticus 8–10: On What the Deaths of Nadab and Abihu Have to Do With Church Membership and Discipline (Bible Talk, Ep. 37)
At the end of Leviticus 9, it’s almost as if we’ve fixed the problem of sin. But in the very next chapter, the Lord strikes down two priests—Nadab and Abihu—for offering “strange fire.”
In this episode of Bible Talk, Jim Hamilton, and Sam Emadi chat about Leviticus 8–10.
Leviticus 1–7: On the Difference Between Being the Quarterback and Tailgating Outside the Stadium (Bible Talk, Ep 36)
The book of Leviticus isn’t just a bunch of random rules. It provides an answer to the problem that’s been swirling over God’s people since Genesis 3: How can a sinful people dwell in the midst of a holy God?
In this episode of Bible Talk, Alex Duck talks with Jim Hamilton and Sam Emadi about Leviticus 1–7.
Pondered by all who delight in them
Love the podcast, incredibly helpful meditations and insights on the Bible, and contra an earlier reviewer, I’m thankful for banter. It provides enough mental breathing space to grasp the deeper insights.
Great exposition of Scripture if you can make it through the machismo
A wonderful exposition of the Scripture but uses too many analogies that are often centered on male interests, forgetting their Christian sisters. It’s a constant switch between godly teaching and sounding like three teenage boys finding themselves hilarious. Hopefully future podcasts will focus on just Scripture not making flabby and cheap punchlines. Please stop the cultural references and just focus on the Bible! People are listening for that not for your “humor” or entertainment.
Bring on Leviticus!!
