When Reformed Theological Seminary announced that they were going to make some of their courses available for free on ITunes, I perked up, fired up ITunes and quickly starting searching the goldmine. While scavenging around, I stumbled across this 3-part series. I remember thinking, “Well now, that’s a provocative title. Download for free? Why not? Click, click, click.”
Downloading blind, so to speak, as I had no idea what to expect, I figured I’d pop in my ear bud and find myself listening to a monotonous and painfully boring lecture, one that would propel me into a coma like state whereby I would lose all awareness of my surroundings and get attacked by a sneaky dog (recall that I’m a mailman).
To my surprise, I was riveted. Was I riveted because Dr. Currid spoke with the passion and unction of a Whitefield? Well, no, not exactly. Rather I heard new and wondrous things. I felt like a carnivore at a steakhouse. Nearly everything was tasty and meaty.
So look. If you’ve heard of a guy named Peter Enns, and if you’re curious how Exodus is both polemical and ironic, then give this a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced
Must Listen Factor: I thought it was a great. But in all fairness, this is probably only going to appeal to pastors, teachers and students. So if you’re one of those, then I would say that this has a high must listen factor. For all others, I suppose it would be low… unless of course you want a T-bone steak.
