Pete Enns & The Bible for Normal People

Interview with Jeffrey Stackert: Who Wrote the Pentateuch?

In this episode, Pete & Jared speak with Jeffrey Stackert about the origins of the Pentateuch, or the first five books of the Old Testament. Rather than looking at the books as separate works written by Moses, they discuss the documentary hypothesis which suggests that the Pentateuch was compiled from four sources. And many of the contradictions in the text may actually be indications of converging viewpoints from editors including or omitting details to preserve the integrity of the text.

What Does the Bible Have To Say About Politics – American or Otherwise?

October 15, 2018

What does the Bible have to say about politics? Nothing, really. On the other hand, a lot—but not the way many tend to think.

What is needed more then another clever politician with resources to ram things through are prophetic voices that remain distant from adopting wholesale any party ideology.
