The Podechesis Podcast Episode 4: The Bible: Part 2

“The Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation…” (Article 5 of the 39 Articles of Religion out of the Anglican Church”

Why is the Bible so important? Is it merely a collection of ancient narratives, poetry, and letters or is there something more? Is there a message that is threaded throughout the Bible that links Genesis to Revelation and all “books” in between? Is the Bible REALLY the word of God?

In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Brett, Jim, and Allen are joined by Dr. Brian Russell, Professor of Biblical Interpretation at Asbury Theological Seminary, to discuss the third question of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, What do the scriptures principally teach? They have a great discussion talking about all things scripture and why the Bible matters today.

Along the way, Brett will attempt to introduce Jim and Allen with bravado only to fall short, Jim will ONCE AGAIN attempt to talk kale smoothies, and Allen will try to defend Georgia sports from Brian’s continued onslaught (really, Brian beats up Georgia sports to make great spiritual insights).
