• Does Paul contradict Jesus’ teachings and example regarding associating with “sinners”?
  • Why is Paul concerned with male prostitutes and not female prostitutes?
  • What are Paul’s views regarding homosexual acts?
  • Was female prostitution prohibited under Jewish Law?
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 30 will cover Paul First Epistle to the Corinthians.
