In this episode, I recap everything we have discussed so far, before I begin a new chapter of the podcast. This is a great place to start if you are new to the podcast, and you can then cherry-pick the past episodes you would like to delve into further.
As you know, this podcast began as a way of presenting the ideas in my book (Evil Within and Without: The Source of Sin and Its Nature as Portrayed in Second Temple Literature) to a more general audience. Of course, I also added discussions regarding the biblical texts on which Second Temple ideas were based.
As I am now finished with the ideas in my book, I am looking forward to exploring other ideas regarding sin, including atonement, sin’s consequences and punishment, and other related ideas as they appear in the Hebrew Bible, Second Temple literature, and, sometimes, later in Rabbinic texts.
So not only is this the recap episode, it is your opportunity to tell me what you would like to learn next! I would love to hear from you. Just comment on this episode to let me know!
