Calibrate Conversations

Have you ever grappled with the real story behind the fiery end of Sodom and Gomorrah? Our latest Calibrate Conversations episode ventures deep into the heart of these ancient cities, as we untangle the threads of sin, judgment, and the ongoing debates about biblical sexuality. With insights from Peter Goeman of Shepherd’s Theological Seminary @shepherdstheologicalsemina6171  and the archaeological expertise of Joel Kramer ( @ExpeditionBible   we examine the layers of interpretation surrounding Genesis 19, providing you with a fresh and thoughtful perspective on a story that has long been a source of contention.

The Scriptures are a treasure trove of narratives that challenge us, especially when they touch upon the sensitive topics of sex and societal norms. We navigate these waters with care, discussing Dr. Goeman’s dissertation findings on homosexuality in the Old Testament and exploring how these stories fit within the wider context of the Bible. Our aim is to equip you with the confidence to interpret Scripture amidst the complexities of modern ethical dilemmas.

Amid discussions of sin and its consequences, we never lose sight of the redemptive power of grace. This episode doesn’t just dissect the past—it offers a path forward for anyone grappling with LGBTQ issues within a Christian framework. Through archaeological discoveries and thoughtful theological discourse, we bring to light the enduring message of hope and transformation in Christ. Plus, with Joel Kramer’s captivating findings providing concrete evidence from the supposed sites of Sodom and Gomorrah, you’ll gain a richer appreciation for the biblical world and its timeless lessons. Join us for an episode that promises profound insights and an unwavering look at grace in the face of judgment.
