Episode 49: Pete & Jared - Critical Thinking

May 14, 2018

In this episode, Pete & Jared define critical thinking and unpack what it means to read the Bible critically. They suggest that a "God said it, that settles it" approach to scripture may not factor in the context, audience and literary style that the author employs in writing. Thinking critically about how we approach scripture allows us to experience the fullness and richness of the text.

Episode 48: Jeffrey Stackert - Who Wrote the Pentateuch?

May 7, 2018

In this episode, Pete & Jared speak with Jeffrey Stackert about the origins of the Pentateuch, or the first five books of the Old Testament. Rather than looking at the books as separate works written by Moses, they discuss the documentary hypothesis which suggests that the Pentateuch was compliled from four sources. And many of the contradictions in the text may actually be indications of converging viewpoints from editors  including or omiting details to preserve the integrity of the text.
