Episode 93: Why is the Bible
so strange sometimes?
Has anyone ever told you to read the Bible … it’ll change your life?
On one hand that’s true. Studies have show that people who read the Bible 4 days a week see significant life transformation in all sorts of positive ways.
But on the other hand, if we're gonna be honest, the Bible also has some pretty strange stuff in it! Women riding on seven-headed beasts and demon-possessed people that attack other people, kind of stuff. Or more troubling stuff like slavery and commands to kill people.
Why is the Bible so strange sometimes?
One of the major reasons for that is because reading the Bible is like traveling to a foreign country! So the more culturally sensitive we the more we will understand it.
