Bowen, Lewis and Stavrakapoulou Dissect the Genesis of Israel’s Religion

Bowen, Lewis and Stavrakapoulou Dissect the Genesis of Israel’s Religion July 21, 2021

I can’t tell you how interesting this interview was. Actually, I can – it was supremely interesting. I cannot wait for Stavrakapoulou’s book to be released – she is such a good public communicator of her discipline.

This interview has soooo many fascinating and important nuggets for discussion. It is listening to stuff like this that makes you realise how incredibly flimsy the historical basis for the entirety of the Bible really is. You pull the foundational bricks out of the early Pentateuchal books, and the whole edifice comes tumbling down like a house of cards.

I will pick some ideas from the video out for future topical discussions.

Well worth checking out is Stavrakapoulou’s BBC documentary series from a few years back. Might have to watch it again…
