Our podcast with host Dr. Cyndi Parker invites Israel Bible Center scholars to engage in captivating discussions about the content of their courses and provides an opportunity to go deeper into the Bible.
Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg is the founder of the Israel Bible Center and the author of many courses. This week he joins us to discuss some troubling and confusing sayings in the gospels that can be better understood by knowing the Jewish context in which they were spoken.
In the final episode of the IBC course Listening to the Land of the Bible Part 1, Dr. Cyndi Parker discusses why geography explains the underlying political tension in the David and Goliath story. Our listeners also get to hear about her brand new book entitled Encountering Jesus in the Real World of the Gospels.
Join us as Dr. Cyndi Parker continues to explain what the physical context of biblical events can teach us about God. Simply understanding the larger ancient Near Eastern landscape can tell us how God wanted his people to be world influencers instead of world dominators. Seeing the diverse and rugged ecosystems of the land can teach us how to rely on God. And maps! What do the design of maps tell us about our priorities?
The tables are turned this week as Dr. Gruber interviews Dr. Cyndi Parker about her course Listening to the Land of the Bible. But why should we all care about geography? How does the land contribute to our theology?
