At Bible Feed our aim is to motivate you to read your Bible as you've never read it before. Reading plans are good but I find there are different ways of reading that are perhaps more important in getting to a good understanding of passages.
What motivates us to read the Bible now? Is it relevant for today's modern world? And where might be a good place to start? We had a fascinating Bible Feed Live conversation that covered topics ranging from how the Covid-19 crisis has prompted displays of both human selflessness and human selfishness to the depiction of human brutality in the event of the crucifixion of Jesus. We talked about how the Bible presents solutions to the problem of mortality, wrestled with the fact that God is however largely hidden, and gave a good number of tips on where to start along with some resources to help you.
What's the best way of reading this huge, ancient collection of books?! We tackled this question head on in a Bible Feed Live webinar that explored topics from Genesis and genre, to the relevance of Revelation. We give some tips and make some suggestions to help you in your Bible reading.
Why is it worth reading the Bible? What should you expect to learn? What is its purpose? Catch up on the conversation as we explore all these questions and more. We talk about a broad range of things, from the relevance of a random list of sacrifices in the book of Numbers to the non-superhero features of Biblical characters and why the Old Testament helps us understand Jesus better.
For our final podcast of 2020, we’re bringing you a discussion we recorded when lockdown started in the UK in March 2020. The subject is "Why read the Bible?" which seems just as relevant as we go into a new year in a world very much still in the grip of uncertainty. And so, whatever 2020 has been like for you, whether it's given you sadness or joy or additional stress and strain, perhaps it's comforting to know that the still small voice of the divine, revealed through an ancient text, will always be there waiting for us to listen.
This episode is all about the new book “Founding a Faith” by Tom Gaston. Dan Weatherall asks Tom about some of the concepts explored in the book, such as whether we should build our faith like a tower with a foundation or as a flexible web of interconnected ideas – which is more resilient?
