Black Israel Pt. 3

This is the last episode in the Black Israel series; it ties together everything we’ve been talking about. In this episode I ask the question, does it matter? And Is it relevant to today?

Season 1 Episode 28

The Lord will afflict you with wasting disease, fever, inflammation, burning heat, drought, blight, and mildew; these will pursue you until you perish.Deuteronomy 28:22 CSB

This is the final episode in the Black Israel series and the first episode back from my hiatus. Today we're talking about the health issues discussed in Deuteronomy 28:15-68, as well as wrapping up the series. When I first started studying this I wondered if it mattered and what it's relevance to today was. So, in this final episode, we discuss why this passage is important to all of us today, regardless of color, nationality, or lineage.

The final footnotes include links to the first 2 podcasts in the series and the initial blog post about the topic.

    Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
