This is WEEK 3 of the 52 Weeks in the Word podcast - where you will read the Bible, cover to cover in one calendar year.
This week, Trillia Newbell is joined by Dr. Carmen Imes for a discussion on the Torah, and why the second book of the Bible, Exodus, is significant.
Dr. Carmen Imes is a professor at Biola University, where she brings a passion for helping students and other laypeople engage the Old Testament and discover its relevance for Christian identity and mission. Since the release of her book, Bearing God's Name: Why Sinai Still Matters (IVP 2019), Imes has appeared on more than 50 podcasts and radio shows and launched her own YouTube channel where she releases weekly "Torah Tuesday" videos. She is a guest blogger for Christianity Today, The Political Theology Network, and The Well (InterVarsity's blog for women in the academy and professions). Before earning her Ph.D. from Wheaton College, Carmen and her husband served as missionaries in the Philippines with SIM International, reaching out to ethnic minorities. Imes loves introducing students to the rich insights of the global church.
