Formed & Sent Podcast: Brutally Honest | Violence in the Old Testament

Toggle Sidebar

In case you haven’t noticed, violence isn’t a stranger to the Scriptures. So how do we deal with all of the blood in the bible? What are we supposed to learn about God when he sends his people into battle? Can we worship a God who’s wrathful? How are we supposed to interpret and apply the brutal passages we come across today?

This week we’re teeing up a two-part conversation on violence in the bible. In this first episode, we’ll hone in on the origins of violence and how to understand it properly when we read through the Old Testament. Next week, we’ll continue our conversation as we bring the New Testament to bear on how we ought to live today. We hope you find this helpful!
