Humans Are...Trees? — Top 5: Re-Release E2
Humans are like trees. While this thought might not have been at the top of your mind this week, it was a key idea for the biblical authors. In the second of our five most popular podcasts, explore the connection between humans and trees with Tim and Jon as we learn why trees are mentioned more times than almost anything else in the Bible.
Intro to Biblical Law — Top 5: Re-Release E1
God’s law––it can be an intimidating topic. Why are there over 600 laws? What do we do with them? We’re re-releasing our five most popular podcasts, and the episode with the most listens is also the first one we ever recorded. Listen in as Tim and Jon unpack what the laws meant for ancient Israel and what they mean for us today.
Timelines, Dinosaurs, and the Purpose of Creation – Ancient Cosmology Q+R
Are Genesis 1 and 2 literal? What’s up with the differing timelines in those chapters? Where are the dinosaurs in the Bible? How do you know what ancient Hebrew words really meant? In this episode, Tim and Jon tackle your questions from the Ancient Cosmology series. Thanks to our audience for all your incredible questions!
The Genealogical Adam and Eve – Feat. Dr. S. Joshua Swamidass
Did humans originate by intelligent design or the process of evolution? This question has been debated by the scientific community and readers of Genesis for almost 200 years. In this episode, join Tim, Jon, and special guest Dr. S. Joshua Swamidass as they discuss human origins and a way to bridge the gap across such a significant debate.
Even Chaos Praises God – Psalm 148
It’s easy to recognize the psalms as beautiful poems. But how do we understand their deeper meaning? How psalms are organized (both internally and within the book of Psalms) is just as significant to their meaning as the words themselves. In this episode, join Tim, Jon, and Carissa for a deep dive into Psalm 148, where we see Yahweh as the ideal king who restores order to all creation.
Genesis 1-2: Origins or Identity? – Feat. Dr. John Walton
How compatible is the Bible with science? And why does the creation story look different between Genesis 1 and 2? In this episode, join Tim, Jon, and special guest Dr. John Walton as they discuss these questions and the necessity of studying ancient culture and cosmology to truly understand our Bibles today.
This podcast is life changing! It makes the Bible come alive and reveals God’s magnificent plan to a level I’ve never experienced. The hosts make studying the Bible so interesting! And they have fun doing it!
Great resource, fun to listen to
What a great resource for thinking well and deeply about the Bible! It’s fun to listen to, but it also really helps me develop deeper understanding.
The big missed question
If sin caused death, and evolution were true, why was there death for millions of years before the fall? If other humans were created outside the garden, were they perfect? Why did they die? And if sin wasn’t through Adam, then Jesus lied, as well as the other writers.
There ARE theological implications to our faith in the Genesis account for origin.
