- What is the Gospel of John’s obsession with light and darkness?
- Is John the Baptist superior to Jesus of Nazareth or the other way around?
- What was the purpose of Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist?
All of these questions and more are discussed in this episode of The CES Podcast with Dr. Sheldon Greaves.
Welcome to episode 21b of Rational Faiths’ podcat series, The CES Podcast (for the rest of us), with Bible scholar, Dr. Sheldon Greaves and his co-host, Michael Barker. Dr. Greaves and Mike Barker will be looking at this year’s seminary and institute curriculum, which covers the New Testament, and will be distilling a week’s worth of lessons and readings down to a half hour podcast. Episode 21b will cover the rest of The Gospel of John, chapter 1, which was not covered in episode 21a. If you would like to listen to episode 21a (which we recommend), click here.
