    16. Cain and Anakin Skywalker. Who is the Chosen One?

    Star Wars Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith has a fantastic scene with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker that powerfully illustrates how heroes in the Hebrew Bible work, especially the first hope figure of the Bible: Cain.

    15. Guest Chad Bird: Unveiling Mercy, Insights from Old Testament Hebrew

    I interview Chad Bird about his new book “Unveiling Mercy: 365 Daily Devotions Based on Insights from Old Testament Hebrew.” Chad is a Scholar in Residence at 1517. He has served as a pastor, professor, and guest lecturer in Old Testament and Hebrew. He holds master’s degrees from Concordia Theological Seminary and Hebrew Union College. He has contributed articles to Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, Modern Reformation, The Federalist, Lutheran Forum, and other journals and websites. He is also the author of several books, including Night Driving: Notes from a Prodigal Soul, Your God Is Too Glorious.

    We talk about a variety of things together: how does Chad sees Jesus in the stories and poems of the Hebrew Bible? What is Chad’s approach to reading the Old Testament?

    13. Free from Pharaoh but Slaves to Sin

    If Exodus was a 2 hour movie, most Christians only watch the first 45 minutes. As you can imagine, that creates some problems for learning what this story is all about. In this episode, I talk about three ideas that are important for understanding the big picture story of Exodus and how it impacts our lives.

    12. Hebrew Insights from Psalm 113: From Beyond the Universe to Back Alleys

    12. Hebrew Insights from Psalm 113: From Beyond the Universe to Back Alleys

    Psalm 113 is one of my new favorite Psalms! This Psalm takes us on a tour of the universe to show us how awesome God is, but then it takes an unexpected turn to highlight one of the most important character traits of God: loving the people in the lowest places of society. This poem leads to me awe of God, inspires me to love like never before, and fills me with God's love for us.

    11. Guest Katia Motzeva-Gutierrez: New Testament Scholar on The Good Samaritan

    11. Guest Katia Motzeva-Gutierrez: New Testament Scholar on The Good Samaritan

    I talk with New Testament and Judaic Origins of Christianity scholar, Katia Motzeva-Gutierrez, about the parable of the Good Samaritan. The only thing better than a story that you don't know is a story that you think you know. That's how I felt when I first heard Katia talk about the Good Samaritan. I knew in that moment that I had to have her on the show. We only scratch the surface in this conversation. If you want to learn more from her, you can find Katia's content at "Scripture in Context" on Youtube and follow her on facebook at "Scripture in Context." Katia has two masters degrees. One in Judaic Christian Studies and one in Advanced Biblical Languages and the other in.
