(11) Another (Disappointing) Proof

Yesterday, Scott rejected David’s attempted proof that Esther was written with the Holy Spirit. Today, David gives it another shot – and Scott “Columbo” Kahn rejects it once again. Two strikes and you’re out? Listen up and find out.

(10) A Nice Idea with a Mediocre Proof

Finally – finally! – David gets around to proving that the Book of Esther was written with the Holy Spirit. The only problem is that Scott says that his proof leaves a lot to be desired. Who’s right – and will Matt Damon appear on Jimmy Kimmel this time? (Don’t ask; just listen and you’ll figure it out.)

(9) Does Esther Belong in ANYONE’S Bible?!?

Martin Luther wanted to remove the Book of Esther from the Christian Bible… but that was just the latest episode in a history of rejection of Esther. Why did so many find it so objectionable? And what does David make of the fascinating reality that Esther 4:14 has become a central verse in Christian Zionism? #MrHolySpirit indeed!

(8) The Holy Spirit and the Book of Esther

Jews believe in the Holy Spirit? Indeed, they do, and the Book of Esther exemplifies this in several ways. Listen to David and Scott begin to tease out the connection between Ruach HoKodesh (the Holy Spirit) and this enigmatic book of the Bible.

(7) Tu BishWHAT?!

Did you know that there is a Rosh Hashanah… just for trees? Join David and Scott for a discussion of the Jewish sources and mystical connotations of Tu Bishvat, and its relationship to the return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.

(6) Generosity, Dignity, and Sanctity

Our last episode discussed the four types of generosity. In today’s Morning Drive Bible, David and Scott talk about the need for a Biblical marriage to have both dignity and sanctity, so that G-d Himself becomes the third partner in the marriage.

(5) The Four Types of Generosity

After learning that You I Love – not I Love You – helps the me become a we, David and Scott offer the first of the three essential components of a good marriage. 

(4) A Marriage Should be Based on… Nothing?

The best marriages are based on Nothing rather than on Something – and note the capital letter N. See how Nothing is related to the new hashtag #YouILove (great T-shirt idea, by the way). Confused? Let David and Scott sort it out for you.

(3) Withdrawing the Me to Create a We

The first model of marriage in the Bible is NOT Adam and Eve; it’s God and the World. What can we learn about marriage from His relationship with us?

(2) Is a Good Marriage Even Possible?

People are different; joining together in marriage seems to be illogical.  Is a good marriage even possible? Can two people actually create something meaningful together?
