Ep 90: Does the Bible condone slavery?
What was life like in the Ancient world? Why did slavery exist? The Bible mentions slavery - why doesn't it outline a plan to abolish it?
We ask Professor Edwin Judge these and more bigger questions. Professor Judge is one of Australia's most distinguished scholars of Ancient History. This is an illuminating conversation exploring what life was really like in the Ancient World.
This episode was recorded privately at Macquarie University in June 2015.
