Episode 22: The Bible and History: “Don’t tire now, here comes Tyre!”
Paul and Dan take another look into how the Bible narrative and the prophets intersect with history, this time focusing on the city of Tyre. Starting with a historical source that every Bible student should be familiar with, Asterix the Gaul, they take a deeper look at a short passage about the island fortress from the prophet Ezekiel. By exploring what actually happened to Tyre, Dan and Paul tease out how the language of the prophets can be read and understood. They close by thinking about the role that Tyre plays in the narrative and highlight how that is relevant to faithful Christians today.
