Jesus in the Talmud

Joseph Shulam, Christian minister and Hebrew scholar who leads a messianic congregation in Jerusalem, shares how Jesus figures in the Talmud, a collection of rabbinic discussions from the 1st to the 5th centuries AD.  He argues the negative reports among the rabbis actually corroborate aspects of the biblical accounts in the Gospels.

Katya Covrett

Before the pandemic started, in January 2020, I sat down to talk with Katya Covrett, executive editor for Zondervan Academic, to discuss the status of women in academic publishing for our new podcast, “The Stone Chapel.” Katya has been at the center of recent discussions on the status quo and what she at Zondervan is doing to engage more women in academic publishing.

Tyndale House: Past, Present and Future

I want to introduce you to “The Stone Chapel” podcast which I host. It’s a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, TX. Recently, I sat down with Dr. Peter Williams, principal of Tyndale House, to talk about its past, present and future. Williams is a great fundraiser and scholar who raises Tyndale House into the consciousness of many scholars and donors alike.. They provide a wonderful research library and academic community to encourage scholars who are writing books, going on sabbaticals, or just need a fresh time to read a few books.
