Episode 023

This week on The Human Bible we get up to speed on the Torah. What sort of laws does it contain, and who enforces them?

Some critics of the gospels claim that they were written by people playing, basically, a big game of telephone—how do apologists respond?

We answer some listener questions: did Moses part the Red Sea, or just catch it at low tide? Singular vs plural in Genesis—is it the story of creation by one god, or many?

Finally, we look at the claim that “God helps those who help themselves.” For answers, we examine a not often enough referenced text: the Holy Script of the Life of Brian.
