What caused Jesus to confront leaders?
Jesus, Rebels, and Resurrection • Luke-Acts Ep. 4
In the fourth part of their discussion on the gospel of Luke, Tim and Jon talk about the strange story in Luke 9 of the transformation of Jesus on the mountain. In this travel section, we find many parables of Jesus, and the banquets and parties he attended. Jesus is fascinated with parties, and he even used them to talk about what the Kingdom of God is like. These stories continue to reinforce that Jesus’ mission was first for the outsiders, a message that gets him into trouble with religious leaders of the day.

Sodom and Gomorrah • The City E5
If Babylon is the worst city in the Bible, then Sodom and Gomorrah are a close second. The injustice and oppression in Sodom and Gomorrah are so pronounced that God sends a flood of justice to completely wipe out these two cities. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the theme of the city and the darkest parts of human nature. Content warning: Today's episode contains some mention of sexual abuse, rape, and incest.
Who does God regularly choose instead of the firstborn?
In the story of the Bible, we consistently see God choosing the second-born or latecomer to receive his blessing. God disrupts cultural norms by overturning human power systems and lifting up the ones without authority or status. #shorts #BibleProject #biblevideo #bible
The Hebrew word for iniquity describes distorted behavior and its crooked consequences.
The word “iniquity” comes from the Hebrew word “avon,” which means bent or crooked. The Hebrew prophets use this image of crookedness as a powerful way of talking about people's behavior. #shorts #BibleProject #biblevideo #bible
Good News for the Poor • Luke-Acts Ep. 3
In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the first six chapters of the gospel of Luke. Luke stands out among the other gospels because it is all about Jesus’ message being first for the poor and outcasts. This made the religious leaders of the day mad, and Jesus’ ministry was totally revolutionary in a culture that was all about status and wealth. Luke’s gospel is constantly calling back to the Hebrew Scriptures, and it emphasizes, again and again, that Jesus is the Messiah that the prophets talked about.
The Biggest, Baddest City in the Bible • The City Ep. 4
You may have heard that Babylon was the biggest, baddest city in the Bible, but where did that reputation come from? Who founded the city, and what made it so detestable to God? In this episode, join Tim and Jon as they explore the story of the half-human, half-god Nimrod and the city he founded.
What human power system does God consistently overturn in the Bible?
In many cultures, inheritance and authority are passed down to the firstborn child. And the story of the Bible unfolds in an ancient culture that prized the right of the firstborn, yet we see God consistently overturning this cultural norm. #shorts #BibleProject #biblevideo #bible
A Symptom of Human Violence • The City Ep. 3
As the story of the Bible unfolds, humanity grows more and more violent. Cain is more violent than his parents, and his descendants are more violent than him. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss Lemek, Cain’s far more murderous descendant, and humanity’s escalating violence that prompts God to flood the earth.
Do some Old Testament narratives make you uncomfortable?
Biblical narratives have been misused to promote violent conquests throughout history. But when we read the Bible through the lens of Jesus' upside-down Kingdom, we discover a different story. #shorts #BibleProject #biblevideo #bible
