Episode details

What is the relationship between faith and proof? Shane Rosenthal discusses this question with Dr. Mike Farley of Covenant Theological Seminary. How did the Israelites come to believe that Moses really spoke with God, and how did his writings become so authoritative among the ancient Hebrews? Was it just a leap of faith? That’s the focus of this edition of The Humble Skeptic podcast (click here for part 2).

• If you would like to investigate the topic of this episode further, earlier this year Shane wrote a related article titled, “Why Should We Believe the Bible?” which you can find here.

• Reference was made on this episode to an interview Shane conducted with Daniel Boyarin, author of The Jewish Gospels. You can listen to that conversation here.
