On Tuesdays, Fr. Paul Tarazi presents an in-depth analysis of the biblical text in the original languages.
It’s hard to believe, but, yes, it’s possible. There can be an argument in which all points of view are categorically wrong. There can be a situation in which everyone is absolutely certain, and at the same time, have absolutely no idea what they are doing. It’s not only possible, but typical of human power structures. The King is blind. His mistress is blind. Her daughter is blind. The mob, who fancy themselves admirers of the Lord’s prophet, are blind. The king’s dinner guests are blind. Together, these buffoons form a government of the people, by the people, and for the king, in opposition to the Kingdom of God. Richard and Fr. Marc discuss Matthew 14:6-12.

Today marks the 100th episode of Tarazi Tuesdays on the Bible as Literature. Three years ago, Fr. Paul, Richard, and I began a journey, gathering online for early morning recording sessions on themes carefully selected from Fr. Paul's opus, The Rise of Scripture. A year later, on February 13, 2018, we released the first episode to the public, appropriately titled, The Rise of Scripture. Since then, it has been a marathon and an avalanche of knowledge all at once. Each week, Richard and I listen intently to Fr. Paul as he unpacks the text with exquisite discipline and attention to detail. No doubt, we have both grown from the experience, as have you, the listeners—or as Fr. Paul would say, the "hearers." Congratulations to Fr. Paul on his 100th episode. May God grant him many years, and may today's program be the first of many such milestones in this series. (Episode 100)
