Hey everyone. Welcome to the Jessup think Podcast. I'm Taylor, the producer of the show. I'm here to let you know that these summer episodes are reruns of previous episodes from season two of the show. These were handpicked by Mark and Rex themselves. And here they are with a few thoughts.

0:16
Hey, everyone, welcome to our final rerun of the summer and we're excited to to replay our episode with author and Pastor Dan Kimball, looking at his book, how not to read the Bible.

0:30
And just to clear up some confusion. He's not talking about putting the Bible up in a closet under your pillows that would say the easy way out.

0:37
Yeah, yeah. He's looking at Hey, how do we approach the Bible and and understand the hard passages and understand what the Bible is about? And so this is, I think, such a practical lesson and such a practical book. And it's so important for the church moving forward. Right. Welcome to Jessup tank. I'm your host, Mark Moore,

1:00
and your co host, Rex gurney.

1:02
And Rex on the show today, I'm so excited because I have actually one of my personally favorite authors and pastors in the Northern California region, Dan Campbell. He's a vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz. And he's also the author of an upcoming book called How not to read the Bible, making sense of the anti women, anti science, pro slavery, pro violence and other crazy sounding parts of Scripture. And there's a

1:29
so connection with him to be he has he's spoken a chapel here a number of times and has a long, long history with the school so has a lot of good things to say.

1:39
Yeah, it does. It's a fascinating conversation. And it's a really important conversation for right now. Because because Miss reading the Bible can actually lead people away from Jesus and, and the purpose of Scripture is to point people to Jesus. And so we hope you enjoyed this episode. There's a lot to chew on and a lot to think about.

2:07
Well, Dan, we're really excited to have you on the show. And we know that you actually have a little bit of a history with William Jessup University, or at least you've been. You've been here before and spoken at Chapel.

2:22
Yes, yeah. I've been there to chapel I met with John Jackson, I think a couple times and with Bryce Jessup several times as well. So William Jessup used to be in San Jose. And when it was there, when it was called San Jose Christian College, then it became William Jessup, our church used to get a lot of interns from William Jessup. And that was like, amazingly wonderful. And we were sad, actually, when you guys moved to Sacramento, but then glad that you could expand and have more property, and all of that, but yeah, I feel wonderfully at home at William Jessup. And it's I'm always so thankful for doing there in Sacramento and all the students that come from all over the place.

3:03
We still have a presence, I think in San Jose, but it's it's not the same sort of thing. Yeah.

3:11
Are in Aaron Rockland area.

3:14
No, yeah. And Bryce Jessup. I have an 11 page, handwritten letter from Bryce Jessup, because when I first entered into ministry, at Santa Cruz Bible Church, I was very interested in I didn't grow up a Christian. And then when I was entering into ministry, he spoke at Santa Cruz Bible. And I was wondering, like, you know, I really liked his message. And he was older at the time and wondered, you know, what sustains someone that is going into ministry, and he wrote me an 11 page, handwritten letter back, which I still have, because it sounds

3:46
like rice. It really does. Sounds like he was that kind of guy. Yeah,

3:49
yeah. Well, I've great yeah, he was such a encouraging person and loved when I was over there to be able to meet meet up with them.

3:58
Oh, that's great. That's really great. We'll have to
