  1. Great podcast. It’s worth listening to again this Christmas.

    I think that you guys should do something similar around Easter and discuss the narratives of the Resurrection and the history of the Easter tradition.

    1. I’ve just finished reading through N. T. Wright’s “The Resurrection of the Son of God” and found it a fascinating read — a friend in Utah mentioned it. A long, long, long read but very worth persevering with on the Easter stories and historicity.

      1. Thanks all of you above. Just lined things up for a dive into Easter, resurrection narratives, development of traditions! Watch for it near beginning of Lent.

    2. +1 to Adam’s suggestion, an Easter tradition discussion would be a great topic.

      I enjoyed this podcast last year, though it was after the Christmas season so I am happy that it is being re-posted again for this Christmas season for a re-listen.

  3. Another thing I find fascinating is that in Luke, it mentions the taxation or census when Cyrenius was governor of Syria. Interestingly, Herrod the Great died in 4 B.C.E., and Cyrenius wasn’t governor until 6 C.E.

    As a result, the birth story in Matthew and the one in Luke chronologically contradict each other. It’s kind of amazing to learn some of these things. Keep up the good work.

  4. If you wish a higher criticism, liberal treatise on the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, I would recommend this podcast. If you wish a highest criticism treatise where the ancient records of the birth account are treated as any other ancient document, please look elsewhere.
