Welcome to Shoulder to Shoulder, a podcast where a pastor and a rabbi get to the heart of issues that matter to people of faith.

Jun 22, 2022

Pesach and Doug are both on the road this week, so we're rereleasing this classic episode from September, 2021. We'll be back next week with an all-new episode of Shoulder to Shoulder.


As people of traditional faith in the Bible, when are we permitted - or even required - to read the Bible metaphorically rather than literally? Must I believe that an actual snake spoke to Eve? If not, what about the Exodus? And what do we say about conflicting accounts in the Scriptural narrative? Professor Joshua Berman of Bar Ilan University dives deep with us in an eye-opening and theologically challenging discussion.
