Episode 55 - Does God Have A Body‪?‬ Doubts Aloud Podcast

    • Religion & Spirituality

Episode 55 - Title Suggestions

1. God’s Body
2. Does God have a Body?
3. God really has a Body and we’re not joking
4. The one where God has a body

Episode 55– Show Notes
The idea we explore is that the Old Testament authors all thought that God had a body. For them He wasn’t an ethereal unembodied universal Being. We look at the evidence for this view and the reasons it seems so contrarian a view to take. There is wonderful history here hidden in the Old Testament and in the story of how views have developed since.

Frances shared an infamous legal case from the 19thC. Please see this link which includes a copy of the cartoon she describes:

As is often the case we (well Frances & Ed, Andrew seems to know it already) gained immensely from “The Bible for Normal People” podcast. In this case episode 147. Here’s the YouTube version:
