In this episode, Catherine wraps up this series on dealing with the difficult parts of the Bible by addressing those parts of Scripture we still don’t understand. Let’s be honest—sometimes Scripture does say what we want it to say. What is the point of these passages dealing with rape, slavery, and murder?

Issues like these frequently come up when discussing the Christian faith with unbelievers and with our kids. They wonder how we can overlook such things.

We shouldn’t.

We should wrestle with these sections of Scripture. We must not change them. We must not discard them. We must study and question and pray and wring our hands. Often when we do, we will find answers rendered more precious because of the journey it took to find them.

Join Catherine in this divine search for answers to the tough questions in the Bible.
