This podcast series explores the Gospel of Matthew as literature, as a story. I make the argument that the story is one of a nonviolent revolutionary peasant leader named Jesus or Joshua (depending on whether you transliterate from the Greek or the Hebrew). The story, therefore, is sociopolitically subversive. Not only is the story subversive in its content, it is also subversive in its form. It parodies an ancient genre of literature common among the upper classes.I will make the argument t ...

The opening pages of the Bible show us God’s good plan to rule with humanity as his image in heaven and on earth.

Our dreams are often filled with strange images. What happens when a prophet, steeped in the Scriptures, receives a dream from God?

Many of the world's leaders are sociopaths. Murderous dictators rule with iron fists and kill and torture people with impunity, and this is not to mention the sociopaths who run democratically ruled nations. Why does the system foster and nurture narcissism and sociopathy, especially in those who seek and hold positions of power? Rich Procida will …

If this series has not been controversial already, it gets even more controversial in this episode. I make the claim that Jesus joins a liberation movement already in progress to get his start as "Messiah." Also, I will assert that temples in the ancient world were government institutions that served as mechanisms through which the ruling classes c…
 
Why didn’t Paul use more parables? Is the parable of the four soils about salvation, or something else?

In this episode, to address our current situation, I take a break from Matthew and hop over to the Gospel of Luke to look at the Parable of the Dishonest Manager - A strange parable for strange times.

In this episode, Jesus and his family become refugees. Fleeing their home country, which is under the brutal occupation of a foreign empire, they take refuge in Egypt, which, according to their national history, was both the place of their people's slavery and also a refuge for those escaping the Babylonian invasion.With this story, the author of M…
 
The parables of Jesus force a choice for his listeners. Will they embrace the upside-down value system of the Kingdom of God, or will they refuse to participate in the party? In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss two additional themes of the parables. View full show notes and images from this episode → Show Music Defender Instrumental by Tents Late …
 
Jesus takes up John's work of leading a movement for The New Society (Kingdom of Heaven). Matthew's imagery reminds the reader of the setting of this story in the Roman Empire. Jesus liberates his disciples from bondage to the empire, setting them free to join the movement.By Bert Newton
 
Jesus often used parables as a means of indirect communication to critique and dismantle his listener’s views of the world in order to show them the true nature of God’s Kingdom. In this episode, Tim and Jon talk about the role of the parables in persuading listeners through subversive critique. View full show notes from this episode → Additional R…
 
In this episode, we follow Jesus through his "vision quest," as he retraces his people's journey in the wilderness through a time of testing/temptation. Jesus has to prove what sort of Messiah or "Son of God" he will be. Please leave comments at the Facebook page (click on the Facebook icon at the top)…
 
Many of Jesus’ parables sound oddly similar to the parables of the prophets. This isn’t coincidence. Jesus saw himself as fulfilling the role of a prophet to Israel’s leaders. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the parables as part of Jesus’ prophetic role to Israel. View full show notes and images from this episode → Additional Resources Craig L…
 
The "virgin birth" of Jesus, the title "Son of God," and the concept of the forgiveness of sins all had resonances in the first century Mediterranean world that they no longer have today. Understanding what those terms and concepts signaled, as well as how this story "fulfilled" the prophetic texts will greatly expand our understanding of what this…

Joe Biden has taken the lead in the Democratic primary so he must be doing something right, but what is it? I argue that Biden is now leading because he made his campaign about beating Donald Trump whereas Sanders made his campaign about his socialist platform. The Trump regime is a threat to democracy. The electorate is most concerned about beatin…
 
This episode is the only one that will not look at one particular text (all the other episodes will continue progressively through Matthew), but rather at the book as a whole. I make the argument in this episode that the whole Gospel of Matthew parodies a genre in the ancient world to get across a very serious message.…
 
Lynne Mystic-Healer, Frank Hieparky and I mix lament with promise in our discussion of the state of our politics today, especially in the United States.

Media Psychology Specialist Lisa Snow and I continue our discussion about the use, effects, and dangers of propaganda.

King David sets up a new Eden in Jerusalem, but the people continue to set up false Edens in high places. How will God respond, and when will he raise up the seed who will usher in a new Eden?

This is an edited version of my interview by Lynne Mystic Healer. She asked me how to bring back real democracy. We can begin by recognizing that propaganda and other covert techniques are being used against us. I talk about the effects and types of propaganda and how propagandists spread disinformation and cause division. How many advertisements d…
 
In this episode, I describe how the genealogy in Matthew is actually a parody of a genealogy. In the gospel in which Jesus instructs his followers to "call no one on earth 'father,'" this list of fathers is intentionally ironic. I also talk about other "trickster" texts in the Bible such as the praise of King Solomon and the story of the rise of Jo…
 
The story of Moses repeats key themes from the stories of the garden, Noah, and Abraham. Moses and Israel both face tests before trees on high places, and Moses takes the act of sacrifice one step further. Listen in as Tim and Jon discuss Moses and the s’neh tree.

We are inundated with propaganda. If we consider that propaganda includes advertising, messaging, and public relations, we can begin to recognize how surrounded we are by propaganda. This episode is part one of a two-part series on propaganda. If we were to ask why America is so divided, why the Left is always divided and chaotic, and why we are in…
 
Why are moments of testing on high places often accompanied by sacrifice in the Bible? Why does the Eden story seem ambiguous about the number of trees in the garden? Were humans mortal when they were placed in the garden? Tim and Jon respond to these questions and more in this question and response episode. View full show notes and images from thi…
