VFTB 277: Mike Heiser – The Unseen Realm

Unseen-RealmTHE SUPERNATURAL realm is real but it’s probably very different than anything you ever heard about in church. American Christians tend to claim belief in a supernatural God but live as though all the questions of life have natural answers. What’s strange is that the information is all right there in the Bible.

Dr. Michael S. Heiser, Scholar-in-Residence at Logos Bible Software, joins us to discuss his new book The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible.  Mike explains why Psalm 82 and Deuteronomy 32 are key to understanding this fundamental truth: “The God of the Old Testament was part of an assembly–a pantheon–of other gods.”

Click here for Mike’s Divine Council website, a quick overview of the Psalm 82/Deuteronomy 32 paradigm. And here is the link to the paper Mike referenced, “On the Origin of the Watchers” by Amar Annus.
