Episode 7: Go Chuck A Pig Into The Sea

October 7, 2018

This week's episode is an audio version of the blog post at WhatIfProject.net where we talk about an odd story from Mark's Gospel where Jesus answered the prayer of a demon by sending it into a herd of 2,000 pigs that then bolted off a cliff and drowned - and people say the Bible isn't interesting, C'MON! We talk about what the 2,000 pigs might have represented in the story and why the Gospel writer told the story in the way that he did.
