8. He Told You So

In this episode, we discuss Genesis chapter 3 and the story that is unfolding, which includes the introduction of a new character, the serpent. Join us as we listen to what the Scriptures are unveiling and submit to the message found within.

7. God, The Bedouin

Did God really make Woman for her to be subordinate to man? In today's episode, we read through Genesis chapter 2 and discuss a variety of things such as the images of shepherdism alluded to in the assignment of man to the garden, the early red flags of man's descent into sin, and the true colors of the introduction of Woman in chapter 2.

6. Who is Elohim?

In this episode, we conclude our reading of the "first creation account" and discuss what has been the character introduction of God, as well as the introduction of the theme "toledot" or "generations."

5. Adam Min Ha-Adamah

In this episode, we discuss the introduction of Mankind to the stage of the biblical story. This section has been historically inflated with all varieties of philosophical presuppositions. Eisegesis, if you will. This is not the way to read scripture. Join us as we attempt Exegesis. This approach is to lead from out of the text the originally intended message. If we allow the Hebrew to speak on its own terms and we look at the overall structure of the literature in this section, the introduction of mankind is astonishingly simple but much more vexing.

4. The Moving Creatures

Join us as we discuss the introduction of the living, or as we call them, moving creatures. Movement and vitality are of the essence to the life of the obedient servant, and the authors of Scripture introduce the motif here in the first chapter of the Bible.

3. A Cyclical Reality

In this episode, we hear about God setting the created order in motion. Nature is of a cyclical reality and in this story, the authors make it clear that God is purposefully making it so. It is a slap in the face to those who submit to a false creator. Only God is in control in this story, it is up to us whether or not we will listen. Today we read through Gen 1:11-19.

2. The Revealing Instruction

We continue our discussion from last week, unpacking the scriptures to illuminate the character of God as he is revealed in his word, this story, the same way he causes the dry land to appear. Today we read through Gen 1:3-10. Produced in association with the Ephesus School Network. Intro and outro music Copyright © Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Brookline, MA, used by permission.

1. The Title of Scripture

Join us as we read through the extremely important and powerful first two verses of the Bible, diving into the Hebrew to discover not our own preconceptions, but the story being told within the text. In this episode, we read Gen 1:1-2, discussing the title of scripture that is Gen 1:1 and how that is corroborated by the character introduction of God in verse 2, as well as the means of which we are approaching the text in hopes to discover and teach how it illuminates truth within itself.
