About This Episode
In this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Tim Mackie, co-founder of the Bible Project and professor at Western Seminary. We discuss how to read (and not read) the Bible. Specifically, we delve into both the human and divine nature of the Bible, its historicity, what we mean when we say something is "true," and a few practical tips for reading the Bible for ourselves.
The Skate Church in Portland where Tim first encountered Jesus is still happening.

The story of the Karl Barth quote that Isaac mentions:
After a lecture, a woman asked Karl Barth: "Is it true that the serpent really spoke? And Barth replied: "Madam, it does not matter whether or not the serpent really spoke; all that matters is what the serpent said."
