Before 2020 I did a lot of traveling to speak, but once the pandemic blocked travel and zoom was invented, many of my speaking invitations have been online now.
Podcasts have become a big part of my life too. Personally, I listen to a lot of podcasts while I’m washing dishes or taking a walk. I’ve also spoken on quite a few recently too. There have been some great conversations on a variety of interesting topics!
Here are some of my podcast conversations from the past year or so:
Learning Laborers – Taylor Terzek and Denver Rhodes talk with me about the importance of understanding Jesus in his Jewish context, and why that matters for how we interact with scripture.
(~ 1 hour)
Common Grounds Unity Podcast – Tina Bruner and Kevin Withem devote two podcasts to a discussion about two of my books:
(~ 45 min each)
The Two Trees Podcast – Jon Dillon and I discuss what “stringing pearls” means and how Jewish teachers laced their stories with hints to the Scriptures. How do we find these hints? What do we do with passages that are odd and frustrating? How do we have discernment as we explore our Jewish roots?
Heather Quiroz and Mark Shaffer and I talk about the importance of understanding the way the eastern world thinks. (~20 min each)
Heather and I had another couple conversations about the pros and cons of the Pharisees, and if they were as bad as commonly thought.
If you’re not tired of listening to me yet, I have led several online Bible studies for Narkis Church in Jerusalem, most recently on the book of Luke. After 2020, they on Youtube. You can find them at this link.
