In this week’s episode: Leviticus 16-19. Thanks to the miracle of Skype, Dr. Jay Michaelson, author of God vs. Gay? The Religious Case for Equality and the recently published Evolving Dharma: Meditation, Buddhism, and the Next Generation of Enlightenment guests on TanakhCast to explain why context matters in the Holiness Code, and how an obscure verse about to’evah or “abomination” has become one of the most infamous in all of the Torah – and how it has been completely and practically misunderstood.
Every two weeks, we look at and discuss a portion of the Tanakh from Genesis to 2 Chronicles. It might take a while. Please be patient.
