The church has recently entered the season of Epiphany, which simply means "appearing." In it, the church will spend a good amount of time reading the Gospels, reminding ourselves of who Jesus is, what Jesus did and what Jesus said. In this episode, I consider Jesus's appearing on the scene at the beginning of the Gospel accounts. But, even more, I try and relate some of what was going on in Jesus's day to what is going on in our own current setting.
We've started a podcast related to our occasional gatherings called "Brewing Through the Bible." We're working through challenging passages of Scripture and started where it all began - "In the beginning..." - with Genesis 1.
[Note: Apologies for some background noise. We were at a table in a public place, so we picked up a live cellist playing music and other various sounds.]
