Go significantly deeper into the Bible with JXN Cloud's Bible study podcast.
Are There Errors in the Bible?
Many of us have grown up with an “inerrantist” view of the Bible that explains the Scriptures as perfect in every single way, down to the very last comma. But many who have taken the Bible seriously have come across many discrepancies that seem to say otherwise. What does this mean? Is it perfect? Or is it something else? In this podcast episode, I try to help us see the sacred Scriptures in the light of Godly inspiration and human hands.
The Book of Nature
It’s often been said that we can study the “Book of Nature” to learn about God. There’s a lot to this. But the Bible also gives us fair reason to be discerning while doing so.
Genesis 3:5 says “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” However, there’s probably a better way to interpret the Hebrew here—but it requires quite a bit of explanation.
What was the serpent in the Garden of Eden? A talking snake? Satan manifested as a snake? A snake taken over by Satan? Something else?
As we continue through Genesis, we talk about the Biblical picture of marriage presented in Genesis and what Jesus had to say on the topic.
The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life that we find in Eden is an important symbol in the Bible and something that all Christians will partake in down the road. We dissect its meaning more in this episode of Cloudies with a Chance.
