The Resistance Bible Study Podcast. Because the Bible is the original open-source document. How it is interpreted is key. Those in power interpret it to their liking. And they are wrong. Humanity is not sinful. Homosexuality, as practiced today, is not an abomination. (Hey, masturbation isn't even wrong – just wrongly proof-texted into the story of Onan.) The Resistance Bible Study Podcast features Rabbi Brian of Religion Outside The Box interviewing clergy of all different denominations, giving scholarly answers to answer "What is the Bible?" "What is a passage that is commonly misunderstood?" "How do you find common ground with those seemingly on the other side of its understanding?"
||Explicit12 Rabbi Michael Lezak – A little more Jewish perspective||A little more Jewish perspective. Originally Rabbi Brian thought this podcast has enough Jewish in it with just his own voice. He was wrong. Listen for the call to redemption. My wife has a rabbi. It’s not me. It’s Michael Lezak. And,||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit11 Dr. Larry Keene – Not resuscitation, resurrection.||Not resuscitation, resurrection. Connecting with people even when we disagree. It’s possible. And, here’s how to do that. Larry is my B.F.F. He grew up as a fund-damn-mentalist. He never thought that he’d be best friends with a rabbi.||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit10 Irene Monroe – The Bible and Power||The Bible and power. They might use the Bible to convince you of your “otherness” but the Bible is about how loved you are. She is a modern day prophet. Don’t take that to mean she can tell the future. Nope.||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit09 Rev. Alexandra Sangster – Literalism is so limited||Literalism is so limited. Reading the stories (like that of Noah) as though we too are experiencing them. Job and the origins of the devil. (And, more King David bashing.) Alex is radical. Both uses of the word.||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit08 Sister Mary Jo Chaves – Connecting with the stories and God||Connecting with the stories and God. Predicate theology, A joke about Murray’s ineffective prayers. Popeourii of goodness.

||Explicit07 Rev. Dr. Tracy Hartman – I like Baptists||I like Baptists. This episode focuses on righteous women of the Bible. (And, you’ll find out that King David was much worse than you thought – well, assuming you didn’t know anything shady about him.) Tracy Hartman is the acting dean of Baptist Th||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit06 Pastor David Hayward – From evangelist to revolutionary||From evangelist to revolutionary. How to best engage with people who tell you that they have the truth about the Bible. David is known as “the Naked Pastor.” He sends out a religious cartoon of his own making EVERY day. In 2010, he quit the ministry||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit05 Toni Anne Reynolds – Books that aren’t in the Bible but are Biblical books||Books that aren’t in the Bible but are Biblical books. The story of the good Samaritan is probably one you know, and you know it wrong. And, others. Misinformation gets schooled. I met Toni at the Embrace festival in Portland,||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit04 – Rev. Lee Ann Bryce – Abortion legitimatized in scripture||Abortion legitimatized in scripture! How to interpret what you know. How to love the Bible even when people are hating on you for it – take the high road. I don’t think I would have the stomach to be a gay, female liberal preacher in Fort Worth Texa||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit03 – Rev. Peter Boulatta – Multiple authors of the Bible and horrible translations||Multiple authors of the Bible and horrible translations. A roller coaster ride of learning about the Bible from two guys who seem to know a lot about it. My friend Lori told me that I had to interview Peter.||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit02 John Pavlovitz – the pastor of the resistance||Donuts and the terrible problem of unlearning what you knew. John and Brian exchange ideas of not obeying all the laws in the Bible as written. Cause, modernity. John is “the pastor of the resistance.” He became a “name” after getting fired from||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit01 Rev. Jim Burklo: Resistance against oppressors: a biblical explanation||Jim Burklo was my (Rabbi Brian’s) first interview because this USC Dean of Religious Life is the father of many congregations running their own “resistance bible studies.” I want to grow up to be like Jim Burklo. He is smart, funny,||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
Such a well-rounded, easily-accessible collection of knowledge and perspectives.
Highly recommend this podcast series. A new fresh approach on the Bible. Very informative.
