#600 - Is the Bible Parody, Inerrant, Corrected, Relevant?
Today Preston is settling in the basement with a warm cup of coffee (soon to be cold) for today's hour-long podcast and answering your many questions about the Bible.
Is the book of Jonah satire or a parody? Is it an actual historical book? What did the author intend for it to be? If God breathed stars into existence surely he can make a fish swallow a man.
Can the Bible really be infallible and inerrant when there is such a human element to it? Preston claims that are errors in the Bible yet it is still inerrant.
