It's in the Book: A Queer Bible Podcast
Two queer ministers and one layperson go through the Bible from the beginning.

S2E12 - The Book of Genesis with Joy Ladin

Recapping the First Book of the Bible

Episode Notes

Well, it took us almost three years, but we made it to the end of Genesis. Now, as we look back on the first book of the Bible and try to make meaning around it, we are giddy to be joined by the brilliant Joy Ladin, poet, teacher, and first openly transgender professor at an Orthodox Jewish institution. We reconsider what the stories of Genesis can bring to us in the modern age, and what it means to read the Bible queerly. We question if usurping power dynamics is always good, how we can be like God by resting, and if we ever really left the Garden of Eden.
