In this, the penultimate Human Bible show, hosted by the Center for Inquiry, Dr. Price examines whether or not the Book of Revelation was based on real visions and were there two Gerasene Demoniacs or only one, vis. Mark 5:2 and Luke 8:27 versus Matthew 8:28? What exactly does the word "lord" mean? Does it imply happy submissiveness to the all-powerful, or is it just rubbing my modern independent spirit the wrong way? Finally, does 1 Timothy 2:11-15 say that women are to be saved via having babies?

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to interpret the book of Revelation, in episode 34 of The Human Bible with Dr. Robert M. Price. Then, did Peter personally air his dirty laundry through the Gospel of Mark, as apologists claim? Listeners ask about Genesis 9:13's rainbow on the gun rack of God's pickup truck, while the good Doctor himself asks is Francis the Talking Mule in the Old Testament? Another questioner returns us to ponder what the central meaning of Revelation might be. Stay subscribed to the Human Bible for more podcasts to come.

The Human Bible episode 32 begins by elaborating on "realized eschatology," continued from episode 31, and it only gets better. Join Dr. Robert M. Price as he sticks up for the Bible's insistence on four-legged bugs. Find out the answer to the question did Paul ascend to a heavenly Jerusalem, or was he just describing a road trip? Who got to keep Moses' body, Michael or ... SATAN? Who owns the "logos" concept of John 1, Judaism or Hellenism? Finally, is Paul predicting the end of days during the lifetime of his letters' addressees?

Episode 031

Ever wonder why some stories appear in two or three gospels, but in very different forms? Why the changes in wording, and what significance do these changes have?

Robert Price explains how through “redaction criticism” we can explain some of these differences and understand their significance. For example, the author of the gospel of Luke redacted or edited the source material he used, some of it also found in Mark. Luke shaped the source material so his gospel narrative would make the points he thought important. Among the key differences between Mark and Luke is that while the former suggests the Second Coming is imminent, Luke, probably writing later, counsels Christians not to be impatient. The timing of Jesus’ return is unknown and … well, it could be a while. In the meantime, Christians should recognize that references by Mark or others to the Kingdom of God being at hand mean that Christians have undergone an internal transformation, not that JC is on the next bus from paradise.

Redaction criticism is a powerful tool for understanding the theological goals of the various gospel writers.

This episode also has your favorite segments: Listener Questions, Apologetics, the Prophetic Scorecard, and Is That in the Bible? We learn that the relations between Eve and the Serpent in the Garden of Eden may be more complicated than we thought, and we consider the possibility that even contemporaries of the New Testament authors may have thought the whole Jesus thing was just a bunch of cobbled together myths.
