Shannon Braswell and David Gornoski are back with another exciting conversation on envy, greek philosophy, the Old Testament narratives, and the West’s cross-haunted culture.
Why are successful, creative people derided in society? Shannon and David explore this question by looking at the trajectory of the Old Testament stories from scapegoating to self-reflection; they are then led to the ancient Greek philosophers, the Jewish interaction with ancient pagans, and whether we can look to the Old Testament the same way as we look at the New Testament.
How important are the Mosaic laws when it comes to the development of western civilization? How has our cross-haunted thinking affected our foreign policy and our justice system? Listen to the full podcast for a bold discussion on how to reject the timidness of coercive institutions and get our courage and creativity back as a culture.
