    (161) S9E5 C&G: Hero Complexes and How We Misread the Bible

    (161) S9E5 C&G: Hero Complexes and How We Misread the Bible

    This episode is a bridge between the next episode and the previous ones. In order to recognize how we have misread the Bible, it's important for us to evaluate our lenses and take a look at familiar stories anew. In this episode we will evaluate a number of familiar biblical stories which, when evaluated more closely, bring us to some different conclusions than we generally tend to draw. Understanding the way we misread scripture will help us to look at the Bible anew when it comes to government - putting aside some of our cultural misconceptions.
