Episode 66: “Is The Bible True?” with Dr. Pamela Eisenbaum Part 3

January 8, 2018

Brew Theology is still brewin' the goodies in this sweet month of January 2018 with Dr. Pam Eisenbaum. Episode 66 is Part 3 of a 3 part series with Pam alongside Janel Apps Ramsey, Rob Carrol and Ryan Miller. Dr. Eisenbaum is an amazing human being who loves rooting for the San Antonio Spurs (God's Team), and she's happens to be a pretty rad Jewish scholar that lives in THE Mile High city! We've talked about Midrash, the Talmud, political tribalism, postmodernism, Hellenism, evangelicalism, Parker Palmer, and much more. We dabble into some personal stories (Ryan, Rob & Janel get raw as Pam flips the table and asks them questions about their faith journey). This 2nd part of this podcast ends with Pam talking about myths regarding the Bible. And you'll see why we need a part 4, 5 and 6 down the road. Pam's destined to come back! 

YES... We know you love these shows. Keep brewin' friends...

As a professional biblical scholar, people often ask Dr. Eisenbaum “is the Bible true?” It may be framed as a yes-or-no question, but in fact it is a complicated one, and for reasons many people haven’t thought of. In the following episosdes we will explore some of the reasons why it’s complicated, and how to think about the question differently.

Pamela Eisenbaum is professor of Biblical studies and Christian origins at Iliff, and is associate faculty of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver. One of four Jewish New Testament scholars teaching in Christian theological schools, she is the author of The Jewish Heroes of Christian History: Hebrews 11 in Literary Context, Invitations to Romans, and most recently, Paul Was Not a Christian: The Original Message of a Misunderstood Apostle. She has published many essays on the Bible, ancient Judaism and the origins of Christianity, and is an active member of the Society of Biblical Literature. A passion for working with ancient manuscripts has increasingly informed her research. Professor Eisenbaum has experience working with the Dead Sea Scrolls and spent time at the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin studying the oldest surviving manuscript of Paul’s Letters (dated c. 200 C.E.). She appeared in the ABC documentary, “Jesus and Paul: The Word and the Witness.”

December 18, 2017

Across the faith spectrum, music can be found just about everywhere you look. But it's many forms are as diverse as the religions, denominations, and communities that engage with it. Historically, music has played a critical role in both inclusion and exclusion among faith communities. In this 63rd episode of the #BrewTheology Podcast, Dillon, Erika, Janel (all musicians) and Ryan (Karaoke extraordinaire) nerd out in musical style...We may have a CCM battle on this show #90sLife #FriendsAreFriendsForever

Episode 62: #MeToo with Janel Apps Ramsey

December 12, 2017

Two weeks ago, the Denver Brew Theology community met at Grandma's House Brewery and talked about #MeToo. It was a challenging topic, but one that we knew we needed to meet about and try to cover. Needless to say, there was no way to cover everything. But we gave it a shot. 

As a result of that evening, Janel has recorded a podcast to also cover some of the material. This is definitely not everything we did, nor is it a comprehensive episode. But we hope that it opens up the topic and creates room for healthy listening and dialogue.

This podcast is probably PG13, in that there are a few stories about things women have experienced.

Janel would like to thank several people for their contributions. Dr. Christy Sim is a domestic violence expert who helped with the resources and layout of the evening. Dr. Kara Lyons-Pardue is a professor of NT who helped me with liturgical resources. Lyndia Radice is an experienced Social Worker who also helped make sure this discussion was helpful and healthy.

Janel thanks Ryan for reflecting on his own experiences in the church around this topic along with Baird (Janel's husband) for talking with the Denver community about HR policies. As always, a BIG thank you to Dan Rosado for being the best podmaster ever!

Following are a list of resources referenced in the podcast or used in our discussion. If you would like to host your own discussion please reach out and let us know.

If you were triggered in any way and need someone to talk to, please reach out to Janel or Ryan. Or you can reach out to these other agencies or Dr. Sim.

The National Domestic Abuse Hotline: 1−800−799−7233
National Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-8255 or chat
