Following a brunch with friends in Mesa, Rev. Abby & Jim discuss sex in the Bible outside of the context of marriage. They discuss Genesis chapters 1 and 2; Deuteronomy 22; Ruth; Song of Songs; and Matthew 19. We also reference works by Miguel de la Torre (Lilly Among the Thorns) and Rebecca Voelkel (Carnal Knowledge of God).
For our final episode of 2018, we consider that God's people have not always lived under the rule of God's rulers. The Bible provides many ways to live under such circumstances.
