For the Easter season, I am reading the Books of Homilies, using John Griffiths’ 1859 edition.
Matthew Colvin joins me to discuss his recent book, The Lost Supper: Revisiting Passover and the Origins of the Eucharist. Within a wide-ranging conversation we discuss the value of rabbinic and other extra-biblical Jewish sources for our reading of the New Testament, the meaning of Christ’s words of institution, rethinking the metaphysics and the mechanics of the Supper, Eucharistic practices, and much else besides!
Peter Leithart and I continue our series on the book of Leviticus. This week we discuss the peace offering.

How should we interpret the water of bitterness in the ordeal for adultery in Numbers chapter 5? Is this some sort of a miracle on demand? If not, how much of an idea can we get regarding what’s going on?
