Season 1 wrap up. Jared and I reflect on the first season of guests and topics and how they helped inform the big questions that drive this podcast. Season 2 is coming late January or early February 2018!
In our continuing effort the corrupt the minds of college students (because college students don’t already have currupt minds), Pete and Jared recently took a road trip to Penn State to record an episode of B4NP in front of a live audience.
On this episode—without any adult supervision whatsoever—I give my own take on divine violence, specificially: the Flood story, the curses in Deuteronomy 28, and, of course, the one every one wants to talk about, God’s command to the Israelites to wipe the Canaanites off the face of the earth and take their land. And a good time was had by all.
On this episode, Pete and Jared speak to New Testament scholar Anthony Le Donne about The Gospels as memories of Jesus rather than strictly speaking “historical” accounts. Le Donne is the author of several books on Jesus and the Gospels and also edits the Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus.
The week’s guest is pastor and author Greg Boyd, and our topic is how the crucifixion of Jesus helps us see divine violence in the Old Testament from a fresh angle.
