The Classics

These episodes are the OG episodes of Faith Adjacent as they were the first ones we made. They are casual and conversational forays into classic bible stories/passages as if they were a book, movie, or TV show.

Then, in case we are accidentally sacrilegious, Erin joins us at the end of the episode to rebuke us and add some supplementary knowledge and context to the story.

If you like stories from the Bible but wish you could get them with more colorful commentary and historical context, then you’ll really like these episodes.

If you don’t like stories from the Bible, we urge you to succeed where Lot’s wife failed and run from these particular episodes.
