Savannah discusses how violence was used in the Bible. She also covers how Biblical violence has historically been used as justification for violence among minorities. Josh brings us a spiritual perspective of how the Christian community must approach the Bible differently and let go of literalism to make room for the spiritual truths of the Bible.
