Must listen

I hope Jill keeps making these. These are so nice to listen to and they really open my eyes as well as challenge myself to dig deeper.

The history POV

I really enjoyed this podcast. I went to a private college but didn’t major in biblical studies so didn’t spend much time diving into the Bible deeper then one exegetical paper. It’s great to understand what these stories mean in a historical perspective. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
