I discuss the connections between Saul of Tarsus and King Saul.
Today, I discuss a few of the echoes of the Genesis narrative in later stories in Scripture.
What’s the significance of David and Jonathan’s friendship? Is there something more significant in terms of redemptive history or biblical theology that warrants it being highlighted so frequently and with such strong terms?
Today, I discuss Genesis 36 and Edom as Israel’s twin.
Today, I comment on Genesis 24 and the quest for a bride for Isaac.
In your video on numerology, you said that we should pay attention to the presence of very specific numbers in surprising places. One possible example I’d like for you to discuss is the five smooth stones of 1 Samuel 17:40. Why be so specific about FIVE stones, when he only ended up using one? And is there any point to the other peculiarly specific details here?
One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video, the eighth of my series for the twelve days of Christmas. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe one video every week or fortnight would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
