The Bible can be challenging to understand and apply because most people have never been taught how to engage the Bible the way it was intended in its original context. It’s why Brad created The Teaching Series, which is a weekly video series that explores some aspect of the Bible in its original context and then talks through how people can apply it well to their our own context. This podcast is the audio version of those highly visual video teachings which are housed at walkingthetext.com. So if you find an episode particularly helpful, check out the video version as well.
