A podcast by 9Marks, with Alex Duke, Sam Emadi & Jim Hamilton.
2 Samuel 7: On the Mountain Top of the Old Testament Which Teaches Us, Yet Again, That the Bible Is Amazing (Ep. 100)
To celebrate our 100th episode, we did something a little different. But the conversation—on perhaps the mountain-peak of the whole OT—ended up at the same place: the Bible is amazing.
Alex Duke, Jim Hamilton, and Sam Emadi chat about 2 Samuel 7.
2 Samuel 4–6: On Being Blameless in the Battlefield . . . But Not in the Bedroom (Ep. 99)
After the squelching of Ish-bosheth's insurrection, David is anointed king over a united kingdom and the nations are streaming to the city of Zion. And yet . . . the author wants us to know that something's not quite right in the state of Israel. Alex Duke, Jim Hamilton, and Sam Emadi discuss 2 Samuel 4–6.
2 Samuel 1–3: On Bill Buckner's Obituary, Ish-Bosheth's Failed Coup Attempt, and a Parable of a Prodigal Soldier (Ep. 98)
In 2 Samuel 1–3, the inaugural moments of King David's reign are full of stomach-stabbings, failed coups, and heartfelt laments. And through it all, King David remains upright and unscathed. Alex Duke, Jim Hamilton, and Sam Emadi discuss.
1 Samuel 29–31: On the Rise of David and the Death of Saul, Which Is Also Anti-Evangelistic Beheading (Ep. 97)
When you get to the end of 1 Samuel, you realize how Hannah's prayer (1 Samuel 2:1–10) really does frame everything that's to come.
1 Samuel 26–28: On the Witch of Endor's Surprising Success, the Ghost of Samuel's Final Sermon, and the King of Israel's Meal with the Devil
Alex chats with Jim and Sam about the witch of Endor and the rest of 1 Samuel 26-28.
1 Samuel 25: On a Fake King, a Sinful King, and the Biggest Argument in Bible Talk History (Ep. 95)
In 1 Samuel 25, David is face-to-face with a foolish man who thinks he’s a king. As readers, we’re face-to-face with a vital question: What kind of king will David be?
Alex, Jim, and Sam discuss (and have their biggest argument yet!).
Wholesome Biblical Content
In a day when podcasts are as prevalent as gas stations, it is often hard to find a consistent source of solid biblical content. This podcast is a refreshing example of clear, systematic dialogue about Scripture from scholars who love the Scripture and the people of God.
One unique feature of this podcast is the emphasis on the discipline of biblical theology. The hosts labor to show how each part of the Scripture touches, exposits, and recapitulates other sections. Highly recommended for Bible teachers and preachers!
Really encouraging and insightful
Thank you guys for this podcast. This has been a really good listening supplement to my Old Testament reading. Makes me think more deeply about the text and I learn a lot from you guys.
You guys do well at interpreting scripture with scripture. You guys also do well at connecting different text in the Bible to help understand the text you are reading.
Keep up the good work.
Glory to God for His Word and for teachers to help explain His Word!
i don’t think our voices are that similar
thanks for listening, ps 111:2
