• Why was there such a huge debate over circumcision? It’s just the tip, right?
  • In Paul’s letter to the Galatians, who was his audience?
  • Why is Paul so dang angry?
  • What does Paul actually mean when he talks about “works”?
  • Did the early Christians adopt a “separate but equal” policy? Did it work?
  • Who were the Galatians and where were their churches?
All of these questions and more are discussed in this episode of The CES Podcast with Dr. Sheldon Greaves.
Welcome to episode 28 of Rational Faiths’ podcat series, The CES Podcast (for the rest of us), with Bible scholar, Dr. Sheldon Greaves and his co-host, Miguel Barker-Valdez. Dr. Greaves and Miguel 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 an hour-long podcast. Episode 28 will cover The Epistle of Paul to the Galatians.

    Lastly, here is the link to the Salt Lake Tribune which we cited that talks about the Cathedral of the Madeleine:

He is a co-founder of Henley-Putnam University, a private university catering to the intelligence and counterterrorism communities. He has taught Old and New Testament and similar subjects at Stanford University. At present, Dr. Greaves leads seminars on biblical and related topics as Scholar-in-Residence at the Episcopal Church of the Good Samaritan in Corvallis, Oregon. He is also the founder of Guerrilla Scholars (501(c)(3) status pending), a loose association of learners, thinkers, teachers, artists, and recovering academics that can best be described as, "a bunch of geeks who want to save the world."
