“Is The Bible True?” with Dr. Pam Eisenbaum - Part 1: Episode 64

mix+podcast+logo+-+square.jpg

Brew Theology ends 2018 with a Brewtastic Bang as we are honored to have Dr. Pam Eisenbaum brew up some biblical theology from a unique and fresh perspective! Episode 64 is Part 1 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! YES... you'll love these shows, indeed. Happy Holidays! Keep brewin'...

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.”

mix+podcast+logo+-+square.jpg

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.

#MeToo with Janel Apps Ramsey: Episode 62

beigeBrew.jpg

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

Proximity with Michelle Warren (Part 2) - Episode 53

beige-square.jpg

"We can see evidence of injustice all around us, whether in continuing incidents of racial inequality or in the systemic forces that disenfranchise people and perpetuate poverty. It's important to learn about the world's inequities and to be a voice for the voiceless any way we can. But in an age of hashtag and armchair activism, merely raising awareness about injustice is not enough. Michelle Warren knows what is needed. She and her family have chosen to live in communities where they are "proximate to the pain of the poor." This makes all the difference in facing and overcoming injustice. When we build relationships where we live, we discover the complexities of standing with the vulnerable and the commitment needed for long-term change. Proximity changes our perspective, compels our response, and keeps us committed to the journey of pursuing justice for all. Move beyond awareness and experience the power of proximity." - Michelle Warren* (Power of Proximity)

This is Part 2 with Michelle Warren talking about her latest book, Power of Proximity. Janel, Ken, Rob and Ryan had a great time recording this show with Michelle. Enjoy episode #53 of the Brew Theology Podcast...  & cheers, friends!

Culture, Worldview, and Difference with Tink Tinker - EPISODE 50

beige-square.jpg

Episode 50 of the Brew Theology Podcast features Dr. Tink Tinker, Ph.D. (wazhazhe/Osage Nation) Baldridge Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions - Iliff School of Theology. After this episode, I encourage you to sit down with some friends and talk about the following quesitons (in a pub would be nice!). What is the difference Tinker posits between worldview and ideology? How then would each of these impact the development of language in a socio-political whole? Are people really able to choose their worldview? Or are they really only choosing between ideologies (without demeaning the importance of this later)? How big is the range of “difference” within what Tinker identifies as the euro-christian worldview? Is it possible for two disparate worldviews to find an amicable balance within any given socio-political whole? Have we not often enough found it difficult enough for differing ideologies to live side by side? Say marxism and euro-christian, democratic capitalism? If the choice is between an up-down hierarchical schema of reality and the collateral-egalitarian model Tinker identifies as the traditional Native model, what might be the benefits of each? The benefits of the colonialist model for Native communities? The benefits of the egalitarian model for White settler folk? How does one determine “truth” when it comes to determining whose worldview ought to dominate a socio-political whole? Finally, what then is God?

This is a great episode, and we are proud to send it to your earbuds, friends.

Mental Health (Part 2) - The Elephant in the Room - Episode 48

beige-square.jpg

Part 2... Go to a pub, and take a look around the room. Take it in. What do you see? Do you see the young professional so saturated in fear and worry that they are terrified of being found out as a fraud just like their mind has always said they were?  Can you spot the functional alcoholic so desperate for relief from the weight of hopelessness and depression that they are deciding if this is the night that they end it all? What about the social outcast trying to interact with a group of acquaintances and missing every social cue getting eye-rolls and hushed comments about how odd they are?

Though you may not notice any obvious tells, the reality is that they, and many others, are there struggling with their own mental health conditions. Mental Health America (MHA) reports that 1 in 5 adults in America have a mental health condition, over 40 million people. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that number rises to over 300 million people worldwide. In addition, over half of those Americans with conditions have not received treatment. On Episode 48 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Shane, Janel, Baird, Christina & Jeff continue their conversation: Mental Health (Part 2)!

Live at The Wild Goose Festival - Brew Theology, Pluralism & Stories! - Episode 45

On Episode 45 of the Brew Theology Podcast, we recorded LIVE from the Wild Goose Festival in the Goose Cast Tent. Ryan Miller, Janel Apps Ramsey, Shane Oram and Andy Millman tell their stories, talk about Brew Theology and invite some guests from the audience on stage to record a short episode on pluralism. The hot, humid rain visited us during this show too. If you dig this episode and/or other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a share on the interwebs, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review! Note: The audio quality is not stellar on this episode due to the crazy rain and background noise. However, it's still a solid episode, and it's a ton of fun!
