Like being back in grad school, but in a good way.

To a long-graduated non-Biblical scholar, this is a fun listen. The hosts are excellent "unpackers" of complicated subjects, and their opinionated, nuanced explanations are wonderful for non-specialists like myself who are interested in learning more about New Testament studies. It has all of the fun of a seminar course, but the hosts are doing the 1000s of pages of reading instead of me:)

Entertainingly nerdy presentation. They have a good instinct for level of detail, and excellent judgment about what needs explaining and what doesn't for the moderately biblically literate listener. They aren't afraid to make judgements and give opinions either. I've learned a lot in the past week of NTR binging. Kudos to them for making the time to do this on top of their demanding graduate work.

You don't have to believe in Jesus to enjoy this podcast

I'm not a scholar, but these folks are and they make learning about the New Testament interesting and thought provoking. Highly recommended if you like the NT Pod podcast.
