The Bible and Beyond Podcast 50th Episode
The Bible and Beyond Podcast’s 50th Episode
Featuring Ten Thought-Provoking Clips
Hosted by Shirley Paulson, PhD
Early Christian Texts is celebrating the 50th episode of our Bible and Beyond Podcast! We have collected snippets from ten episodes featuring several of our interviews with scholars since the podcast first aired in 2019. All fifty episodes have been quite unique and fascinating, but these ten excerpts exemplify the depth and breadth of the topics we covered — from why anyone should even look at extracanonical writings to the meaning of Jesus’ passion.

What an excellent vehicle for introducing people to the mission and works of Early Christian Texts: The Bible and Beyond! This podcast shows the scope of the research, the dignity of the scholars, and the value of their presentations. I think listeners will grasp that this work is open to anyone and is in the interests of everyone.
