BibleProject - Podcast, with Dr. Tim Mackie

While the five-minute videos are amazing, the BibleProject Podcast is like getting a graduate seminary education for free. While Tim Mackie, PhD. does a fabulous job of getting into the weeds of biblical scholarship, Jon Collins is there to advocate for the layman, forcing Tim to make sure he backs up his claims and re-explains it in ways that anyone can understand. 

Naked Bible Podcast, with Dr. Michael Heiser

Michael Heiser, PhD. serves up intricate exegesis of the Bible. While headier than many other shows, the content provided on this podcast will slowly re-orient your mindset, forcing you to start asking questions you've never asked about your Bible and the intentions of the biblical authors. In addition, he brings on other scholars to get into the weeds of various elements of biblical scholarship (such as textual criticism). And don't get me started on the Divine Council (see my full list of links under his name down below on this page). 

Ask NT Wright Anything - Podcast, with NT Wright

World-renowned New Testament scholar NT (Tom) Wright meets with Justin Brierly of Premier Christian Radio to answer listener questions about the Bible. Intelligent, Pastoral, Serious, Humorous, and Timely, this podcast will make you begin thinking of things in new ways (especially if you grew up in the American Christianity context). 

Revelation CDA - Podcast

Revelation Church, Coeur d'Alene Idaho is a church dedicated to community and to reading the Bible together in its own Ancient Near East and Second Temple Period contexts. They teach expository, verse by verse, asking what the Bible meant "there and then" before asking what it means "here and now". It's definitely a model of the type of teaching we endorse here at No Hiding. Check out their podcast on the website or on your favorite podcast provider.

Footnotes with Jemar Tisby

From the podcast homepage: "News comes at you fast. It’s not just hard to keep up with everything that’s happening, sometimes you don’t know which voices to trust to help you interpret what’s going on. That’s where Footnotes comes in. Jemar curates the week’s current events with a focus on issues related to black communities, justice, and politics. He’ll also offer commentary from a black Christian perspective to help you think through complex issues. Footnotes adds the details you need to be an informed citizen, activist and believer."


From the podcast home: "Each week, in the award-winning radio show and podcast Unbelievable?, Justin Brierley asks questions like: Is there evidence for God? Can we trust the Bible? Did Jesus rise from the dead? Justin tackles these and other issues, on a show that gets Christians and sceptics talking."

Seven Minute Seminary

"While not a Podcast, the Seven Minute Seminary (on their website or YouTube) produced by Seedbed does a wonderful job of explaining in quick simple terms the ways we modern western Christians have misunderstood the Bible with western eyes."

We deconstruct our common readings of the Bible and attempt to reconstruct them through the lens of historical context. The main body of work is contained in Seasons 1–5, and we encourage you to start with episode 0 and continue in order through episode 204. BEMA Discipleship is a ministry of Impact Campus Ministries."

Almost Heretical - Podcast

*NOT Endorsed, but still Recommended. While these folks may at times actually be fully heretical, not just "almost", I felt strongly I should include them. I debated with myself but felt it was important. Sometimes, we need to hear what discussions people outside of our circles and silos are having. This helps us be better equipped to have discussions with the world around us, thinking through the issues from other perspectives, so we are ready when people like this come to us. In some episodes I found myself agreeing with much of what was said. In other episodes, I felt sadness at what was said, in a few horror. Nevertheless, if you are in a healthy mental space, and ready to hear the discussions of people who may not believe the way you do but are struggling through the Bible on their own terms, you may want to check in here from time to time. I think this helped me challenge my approach towards people who are struggling with their relationship with Yahweh/Yeshua/Ruach HaKodesh. 


Among the more important subjects in Biblical Studies, especially for those of us who want to understand the Bible in its own original Ancien Near East (ANE) and Second Temple Period contexts, is the subject of Messianic Judaism, and the place of the Jewish People and faith in Yeshua HaMashiach. Here are some good resources:

Testimonies of Jewish people who came to see that Yeshua was the Messiah.
RealMessiah - Dr. Brown
According to his website, Dr. Brown "holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures from New York University and has served as a visiting or adjunct professor at Southern Evangelical Seminary, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary (Charlotte), Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Fuller Theological Seminary, Denver Theological Seminary, the King’s Seminary, and Regent University School of Divinity, and he has contributed numerous articles to scholarly publications, including the Oxford Dictionary of Jewish Religion and the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament."
The King's University (TKU)

TKU has an official statement on their website and a fully acreddited Messianic Studies degree path for all levels (BA, MA, and Doctorate). 
Dr. Thomas (Tom) Blake
Dr. Blake has a specialty in Jewish Studies and provides a great breakdown of "Replacement Theology" and other errors related to Jew/Gentile relations. While the Church has largely got it wrong when it comes to the teaching that the "Church replaced Israel", others have over-reacted with a so-called "Hebrew Roots" movement to say that all Gentiles are called to become Jews. Dr. Blake discusses (below) the "ditch on either side" in this area of theology. 


Personal Note: -LANGUAGE ACQUISITION- After attempting to study the biblical languges through traditional means, I decided that a more contemporary and multi-sensory approach was required. We've learned so much about language acquisition and the traditional schools of biblical languages are rushing people into details about grammar before they even comprehend the language at an intuitve level. While grammar and syntax are important for exegesis, this is not how children learn a new language, or even how imigrants learn the language of their new culture. It should be used/spoken before it is dissected. Here are resources that helps in the fight to do better. 


Biblingo - Podcast

ONE Extraordinary Marriage Show - Podcast

If I were going to only tell you about ONE podcast to help you strengthen your marriage within a biblically sound mindset, it would be this one. These folks take a NO HIDING approach to their passion topic. They talk about everything from communication issues to schedules to orgasms and sex positions. This is a must-add for married Christians.


In their words: "Discussing all things marriage: sex, communication, finances, priorities, purpose, and everything in between." This couple is another NO HIDING team, and I enjoy their take on all things Marriage.

In his words: "A podcast on moving towards what's meaningful despite hardship." - This is one of the better thinkers I've heard talk about mental health and healing. It is unclear whether he is a Christian, but he is a voice in this space that deserves attention.

The History of Rome - Podcast

This podcast content is older, it was done in a single series around 2011-2012. There is nothing particularly biblical about it on the surface. However, part of being a good biblical scholar is learning to understand the Ancient Near East (ANE) and Second Temple Period contexts that the biblical authors lived and wrote from. As such, knowing your ancient history(s) from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, Babylon, Peria, Assyria, and others are important for making good biblical exegesis. While much of what you "need" to know can be found in good (current) commentaries, this is an excellent way to give yourself a primer on the Roman contexts leading up to the biblical era of Yeshua HaMashiach. 

Revisionist History Podcast

Note: While not directly related to Biblical History in any way, Malcolm Gladwell does a wonderful job of digging into the history of events and seeing the extra bits that we're not seeing. This would be a good way to re-train one's mind about how to think about history and historical events, the way we tell the stories, and what we might learn by re-assessing our assumptions. Also, I've had my own thinking change and nuance on topics as a result of thinking through these issues from a very human and humane perspective.

From the podcast home: "Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance. iHeartMedia is the exclusive podcast partner of Pushkin Industries."

Hardcore History Podcast - Dan Carlin

From the website: "Thinking Outside Pandora’s Box - How did a multi-hour long show that consists of nothing more than a host talking about history ever become wildly popular? It’s got something to do with Dan Carlin. He’s been called the king of long-form podcasting and “one of the greatest storytellers in the world”. His distinctive voice and style is one of the most instantly recognizable in the medium and with hundreds of millions of downloads, his shows are some of the most listened to podcasts of all time. Carlin’s work weaves historical information with deep questions and Twilight Zone-style twists to help illustrate the power and continuing relevance of the past. Drama, extremes, empathy and vivid examples of both the highs and lows of humanity dominate the narrative. It’s a trademark mix of elements that has been entertaining listeners since 2005."
