September 8, 2021 - 29 Minutes

Dr. Yeshaya Gruber joins me to clarify some of the complexities behind the idea of "Jewish Interpretation," which is not a monolithic thing! We focus this week on the diverse historical periods interpreters lived in that shifted their perspectives and how they interpreted the Bible. How many of these scholars have you heard of?

Wilderness Temptations

September 1, 2021 - 21 Minutes

Professor Pinchas Shir joins me to talk about his course The First Commandment: Deuteronomy and the Gospels. We focus today's conversation on why it makes sense that Jesus quotes from Deuteronomy when he resists the Tempter in the Judean Wilderness. What parallels are there between the life of Jesus and the Israelite history in Deuteronomy 6 and 8.

What do Commandments have to do with Eternal Life?

August 25, 2021 - 25 Minutes

Professor Pinchas Shir joins me to talk about his course The First Commandment: Deuteronomy and the Gospels. We discuss if the 10 are "commandments", "words", or "categories" before diving into a conversation between an unnamed man and Jesus about how to achieve eternal life. What did "eternal life" even mean at that time?
