The 8th Episode of the Podcast “Retelling the Bible” came out earlier today
During the first season of his podcast, storyteller, W. Scott McAndless is retelling the story of the nativity of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke, trying to help us to see some of the historical and biblical references the author is making – helping us to hear the story more as the author may have intended.
In today’s episode, we jump back before the beginning to trace some of the reaction to the census that was taken at the time when Jesus was born. A rebel named Judas and his friend, Zadok, plan their response to the Roman initiative – a response that will have a big impact on the birth of Jesus and of the Christian faith.

Here is a special gift to my listeners (which you will understand after hearing today’s podcast) a cutout of Judas the Galilean to add to your Nativity Scene this year.
