Peter Leithart and I continue the latest Theopolis podcast series on the Ten Words, focusing this week upon the ninth word—you shall not bear false witness. Within it we discuss the often neglected broader meaning of this commandment and deal with the morality of lying.
You can follow the Theopolis podcast on Soundcloud, iTunes, and on most podcast apps. You can read show notes over on the Theopolis podcast website. You can also see past episodes I have contributed to by clicking the ‘Theopolis Podcast’ link in the bar above. If you would like to leave a question for us to answer, please do so on our Curious Cat page.
Today, I discuss the sale of Joseph into Egypt.
Today I discuss a couple of the strangest episodes in the story of Genesis: Rachel’s request for some of Leah’s mandrakes and Jacob’s taking of Laban’s flocks using—among other things—poplar rods.
I discuss Genesis 27, where Isaac is deceived and Esau loses the blessing to Jacob.
