In this week’s episode: Genesis 12-15. We examine the not-so-heroic behaviour of the First Father Avram during his sojourn in Egypt as we ponder the nature of biblical heroes. We also consider the ramifications of time travel on choice, free will and the fate of Avram’s descendants in Egypt as Avram shoos away vultures in the “Covenant of the Pieces”. Will Skynet prevail?
