Welcome to “Bible Study for Progressives,” a show where moderates, liberals and leftists of all faiths and ideologies come together to discuss scripture, spirituality and politics.
Today’s show is “Let them Grow Together: God’s Solution to the Problem of Evil.” We will read the parable of the Wheat and Tares from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 13, verses 24-30 and 36-42. Then we will discuss the problem of evil, God’s solution to it, and our role in God’s plan.
Our panel of commentators include:
The Reverend Tom Eggebean,
Professor David Westfall,
Doctor of Philosophy Joseph Dowd,
Thantra Missionary Satya, and
My father, the Reverend Carl Procida
My name is Rich Procida, and I write biblical commentary at ModernLectionaries.blogspot.com. Let’s begin.
