As every Jordan B. Peterson fan has known for some time now, JBP is BACK! He’s going to producing more content for his psychological significance of the Bible series picking up with the book of Exodus, but as that will take some time to produce, he said he’s considering putting out some videos on the book of Proverbs since they are short wisdom sayings which, though profound, can be more easily commented on.
With this in mind, I thought it would beneficial to interview some Proverb scholars in order to introduce JBP fans to the book in preparation for his coming episodes. Lord willing, I will put out a podcast episode on each chapter of the book– so at least 31 episodes!
Proverbs is probably my favorite book of the Bible. If you’re interested in getting familiar with the book, grab a Bible, or download the Bible app, and read a chapter of proverbs every day. What’s the date today? That’s the chapter of Proverbs you’re going to read. Easy! You’ll have read through the book in a month (read two chapters on the 30th of September, April, June, and November, and three on Feb. 28th)!
So, with this in mind, here’s my first episode in the Proverbs series. Dr. Tremper Longman III graciously joined me on my Parker’s Pensées Podcast to introduce us to the biblical genre of “wisdom literature”, introduce the book of Proverbs, as well as provide us with an overview of the book. He is a world renowned expert in the Wisdom tradition of the Bible (Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes) and it my absolute favorite author to read on Proverbs. Having him own was a huge honor.
