The plague narrative is our jumping-off point for the epic that is Exodus, as our friend Nat Ritmeyer returns to 4QS to talk about how (and how not) to read it. We spend our time discussing how to let Exodus be Exodus, and not bring its towering theology crashing back down to a mundane level. There's just some much story to explore.

Transcript coming soon!

We're also looking at two psalms that epitomise their respective genres, and we ask how people like us should be reading them all these millennia later. And in the New Testament, we find ourselves on one Paul's central teachings: that faith is about doing faithful things, not just agreeing to faithful ideas.
