Podcasts I’m currently loving: Christianity!

Here we are, four days into my week-long series on podcasts I’m currently loving!

Missed a day? So far I’ve highlighted shorty shows (podcasts with episodes no more than 10 minutes long), podcasts all about food, and podcasts created by Aaron Mahnke.

So what shows am I featuring today??

CHRISTIANITY

The Bible Project & Exploring my Strange Bible
WHAT THEY’RE ABOUT

I’ve been extremely interested in bible studies and exploration lately. Side note: if you have any good recs, I’m all ears!! I’m grouping these two together: Tim and Jon host The Bible Project, Exploring My Strange Bible is Tim’s personal podcast. TBP features in-depth conversations on themes, theology, and history – and there are also companion videos on youtube. EMSB holds ten years’ worth of Tim’s lectures, sermons, and classroom teachings.

The Bible Binge
WHAT IT’S ABOUT

If you follow me on instagram, there’s a good chance you’ve seen me talk about this one. I’ll be honest, when I first started listening to the show I thought they were being WAY too casual and wasn’t all that into it…but now ♥ It’s one of my favorite podcasts hands down. Inspired by pop culture, Knox and Jamie wanted to make the Bible more accessible to people – and what’s more pop culture-y than reality tv recaps? Enter The Bible Binge. Each series offers a seriously fun – and educating – look at the stories people already know, as well as ones that aren’t among the Greatest Hits. Their first season traced the lineage of Jesus, season two was all about sibling rivalries. The third focused on David and the recently-ended fourth season was all about Advent.

RECENT EPISODES

The Wise Men: In our finale celebration of Advent, we’re taking a look at The Wise Men. Who were these guys? Who sent them? When did they arrive? Did they bring presents? Were these gifts any good? Matthew 2:1-12

The Shepherds and the Angels: In celebration of Advent, we’re taking a look at each of the players in the nativity. How did Mary and Joseph end up in a stable? How did those shepherds know where to find them? Should the wise men even be in the set? In this short four episode season, we’ll dissect the reason for the season.

Jamie is an author and speaker in addition to hosting this fantastic show. I only started listening to the show last January when Candace Cameron Bure was the guest. Their chat was SO super down-to-earth and I felt like we were literally just sitting around the kitchen table having coffee. After that I was hooked. Each week features a new guest – ranging from bloggers to writers to singers, everyone under the sun. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be encouraged. I love this one and have discovered so many new people to follow on instagram! No lie, pretty much every single one of her guests I’ve started following after listening to their episode. Jamie also puts up links to everything mentioned in the show – from books her guests are currently reading/loving (something she asks in every episode) to social media links.

  1. […] January 10, 2019 LeahLeave a comment Aaah, day five! If you’re just popping onto the blog, all week I’ve been sharing podcasts I’m currently loving, after desperately wanting to update a list I posted back in 2016. Instead of doing one massive list, I decided to break it up into a week-long series. If you’ve missed a day, check out my recs for shorty shows (podcasts with episodes 10 minutes or less), podcasts about food, podcasts created by Aaron Mahnke, and podcasts about Christianity. […]
