#181 Is God Different in the Old Testament Than He is in the New?
Some seem to think the God we read about in the Old Testament behaves differently than he does in the New. Today we are asking the question, is God a vindictive bully as famous atheist Richard Dawkins has stated? In todays epsiode, Dr. Paul Copan joins the podcast to talk through difficult Old Testament passages such as 2 Kings 2:23-35 where 42 young men are mauled by bears after calling Elisha “Baldhead.” We also touch on the Canaanite Conquest, and the Old Testament law codes concerning rape and adultery.
