The Old Testament is a complicated, weird, beautiful, and at times infuriating collection of texts. In this episode, I talk with the Reverend Dr. J. P. Kang about the Old Testament and try to unpack what it is and what it isn’t - and how we see it used culturally and politically in the US today.

J. P. is an Associate Pastor at Japanese Presbyterian Church of Seattle and an Affiliate member of the Theology Faculty at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, where he teaches biblical languages and literature.
