The Gospels Real and Imagined

November 17, 2021 - 21 Minutes

Dr. Mark Goodacre is a New Testament scholar who is amazing at getting people to investigate that which is thought to be "fact" by both the historic Christian community and academic community. This conversation starts with some easy questions like, "Was Jesus a carpenter?" and "Was Mary Magdalen a prostitute?" Then the topics dive into the technicalities of how the gospels were written and if there are mysterious "Q" texts and what (if anything) the Gospel of Thomas has to do with the gospels.

Adventures in Archaeology

November 10, 2021 - 26 Minutes

THE Dr. Jodi Magness participated in a Round Table Talk with Dr. Gruber titled Archaeology on Life in the First Century. Dr. Magness is the Distinguished Professor of Early Judaism at the University of North Carolina, and she is the president of the Archeological Institute of America. She has written several books and she leads the excavations at Huqoq - a site that was a Jewish village in Lower Galilee. She draws out differences between literary and archaeological disciplines and tells us how pottery is a significant element of how to date layers of time in the dig. We also hear how she happened upon some of the best, most elaborate and creative mosaics on a synagogue floor that have ever been found in Israel.

Pentecost, King David, and Rejected Corner Stones

November 3, 2021 - 26 Minutes

Pinchas Shir joins us to continue the exploration of his course The Jewish Church, Part 1 (Acts 1–5). We keep in mind the conversation in the previous episode about the initial believers being Jewish. Today we talk about Peter's use of the Psalms, the added cultural memory of the timing of Kind David's death, and the reasons behind why the early church sold property and gave all that they had to the larger community.
