Numbers 5–8: On How Moses’ Test for Adultery Is Different Than Monty Python’s Test for Witches (Bible Talk, Ep. 44)With Sam Emadi
In Numbers 5–8, Israel is still revving its engine, preparing to enter the Promised Land. For now, we read about a strange test for adultery, the genesis of the Nazirite vow, and Aaron’s blessing, one of the most well-known passages in the whole Bible.
Jonathan Leeman and Mark Dever talk to Josh Manley and John Folmar about Christianity in Afghanistan and the UAE, and the necessity of pastoral patience.
By the time we get to the beginning of Numbers, Israel is poised to take the Promised Land. But first, they need to receive their marching orders.
So in 2021, in a largely unchurched and post-Christian European country, why make confessions a regular rhythm in church life?
Church members ought to know their missionaries. How can pastors facilitate that relationship?
Every pastor knows they should apply the text. How should we do it well? How can we do it better?
In this episode, Mark interviews Jonathan about our new Journal—Sound Doctrine: The Foundation for Faithful Ministry—and, in particular, his very long Editor’s Note, which focuses on the problems of the „deconstruction“ project.
