In this episode we continue our series on the so-called “Bible Atrocities” and ask the question “Isn’t the Bible Misogynistic?” This is Part 1 of a 3 part section seeking to answer that question.
In this episode we continue our series looking at the so-called “atrocities” in the Bible by exploring the question of whether or not God commanded genocide in the Old Testament when he ordered the Israelites to drive the Canaanites out of the land. I’m joined for this discussion by Dr. Matthew Flannagan.
For more on Dr. Flannagan, you can follow his work at www.mandm.org.nz. You can also check out his book on this topic, co-authored with Dr. Paul Copan, entitled Did God Really Command Genocide? Coming to Terms with the Justice of God.
Enjoy the Show!
P.S. I tried a new platform for recording and it did not turn out the best. Sorry for the poor audio on my side of the discussion!
In this episode, I circle back to some of the things that I discussed with Thomas Smith on his podcast Atheistically Speaking. I wasn’t entirely happy with some of my responses so I wanted to flesh them out a little more here. I discuss everything from the literary master of the Bible to the Bible’s polemical use of the Enuma Elish.
I also discuss my views on the ever controversial Genesis 1 creation account – this will be a delight to YEC and OEC alike!

As I mentioned, here are some of the sources you can use to look into what I discussed. In addition to these, I recommend looking up a lecture by John Walton called Reading Genesis Through Ancient Eyes.
In this episode, we continue our look at the Old Testament laws regarding slavery and respond to critical views that say that the Bible condones slavery and the abuse of slaves.

We return in this episode to the series we had started on the so called Bible Atrocities and will start to address the question, “Doesn’t the Bible condone slavery?!” Answering this question may take 3 to 4 episodes as we explore the cultural and historical contexts of Ancient Israel, examine some of the casuistic (case) laws in the Pentateuch, investigate how the New Testament addresses the issue of slavery and servitude in light of the person and work of Jesus Christ found in the Gospel and then wrap up considering the role that Bible played in the New World African slave trade.
