This week on The Human Bible we get a little more up to speed on the Psalms-are they lyrics, poetry, or something else entirely? If they're lyrics, who was meant to sing them?!
We look into the truth, or lack of it, in an apologetic attempt to reconcile the confusing multiple genealogies of Jesus.
As always, we answer some great listener questions (Keep sending them in!): First, how do we know Jesus was a carpenter-is his resume hidden somewhere in Acts? Next, what did the Jefferson Bible (compiled by Thomas Jefferson) actually contain? What did he cut out and what did he leave in? And finally, how can you reconcile the two versions of the death of Judas in the Bible? Did he hang himself, or... explode?
Last, we ask, "Is That in the Bible?!" and look at the Bible's strange clarification that anyone who might say "Hallelujah, Jesus be damned!" is definitely not revealing true prophecy.
Special thanks to Robert, Keith, and Derek for the questions explored in today's episode!

This week we first get up to speed on something very fundamental: Who was Jesus, according to orthodox belief?
We delve into the multiple—and conflicting—genealogies of Jesus in this episode's "Apologetics is Never Having to Say You're Sorry."
We answer some great listener questions, including: What does the Bible say about marriage? Does it really make a big deal about it being between one man and one woman? While we're at it, what does it have to say about polygamy? Unsurprisingly, the answers may surprise you.
Finally, what did Jesus himself have to say about being the messiah? Did he ever actually make that claim? Is that really in the Bible?!
