Episode 9: Mrs. Lazarus and the Idea of Resurrection EPISODE 9

As they engage the Gospel story alongside Duffy's poem, your hosts discuss the meaning of resurrection as a life-death-life pattern that appears in the Hebrew Bible, the Newer Testament and, metaphorically speaking, in life outside literature.
