THE MYTHS of the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Babylonians can help our understanding of the Bible. We discuss this idea with King Wells, Jr., author of the new book Ancient Myths and the Bible.
THE OLD Testament is a record of rebellion. Fallen angels, placed over the nations by God after the Tower of Babel incident, led the peoples under their control in a war of extermination against the one nation reserved by Yahweh for Himself. In other words, Baal, Asherah, Molech, Chemosh, Dagon, and the other gods who bedeviled the ancient Hebrews weren’t simply constructs of wood and stone; they were real. Dr. Michael S. Heiser shares the biblical evidence for the Divine Council paradigm and explains why it matters to Christians today.
OUR SHOW tonight was recorded live Thursday, July 23, for Taylor Kent’s Snark Infested Waters podcast. Taylor is a fan of comics, graphic novels, games, and science fiction, and we’ve talked before about Christians and culture. Taking that a step further, we discussed whether Christians, who were told by Jesus Himself to expect the world to hate us, should investigate, or even care about, conspiracy theories.
