Decoding the Women of the Bible Podcast 

(Available on PodBean)


In his Podcast course, we will discuss the Women of the Bible in a way never discussed in my classes.


The language in the Bible is the hardest language to understand without knowledge of context, historical background and literary devices. 

What I want to do in this Podcast is decode the language used, look beyond the literary meaning and place each woman in the historical setting in which they thrived.

The purpose of this method is to present a different technique of learning. Critical thinking is an important facet to understanding the written word. "With all your getting, get understanding," is the Biblical plea to God's people. 

When you can understand what you are reading, in the right context, in the right setting, and the right circumstances, you will better understand how the story is intended to benefit you.

Eve's Awakening: A Conversation with My Sisters is a whimsical short story depicting the fictional life of Biblical Eve. The story is taken from the author's imagination and is considered a fiction book for Entertainment purposes only.
