Pete Enns & The Bible for Normal People

What Is the Bible & What Do We Do with It?

In this season finale episode of The Bible for Normal People Podcast, Pete and Jared reflect on the first season of guests and topics and how they helped inform the big questions that drive this podcast. They explored the following questions:

  • What is revelation and what do encounters with God give us?
  • If the Bible isn’t a rulebook, what is it?
  • How can Rohr’s tricycle analogy helps us approach the Bible in new ways?
  • What’s the point of the Bible? Belief, doctrine, or wisdom?
  • How is struggle different in Jewish and Christian communities?

Interview with Kent Sparks: Where Did the Israelites Come From?

May 8, 2017

This week’s guest is Kent Sparks, professor of biblical studies and provost at Eastern University. Our discussion is all about the mystery of Israel’s origins. And it is a mystery. The exodus and conquest of Canaan (Exodus through Joshua) are central to Israel’s identity, and are certainly informed by old traditions and authentic historical memory—but they not historical accounts in the modern sense. How and when, historically speaking, Israel stepped out onto the world stage is a huge mystery, though we have some clues to piece together a compelling picture.
