★ Garry Steven’s The History in the Bible podcast is excellent. This week he talked about a text few Christian have ever heard of; The Book of Enoch. It is in this text that we first hear of hell as a place of punishment. This text is also a major influence on later Christianity. I can recommend this episode, but also recommend the podcast as a series. Garry has already covered all the books of the Hebrew scriptures (what some Christians call the “Old Testament”) that you can listen to at this episode list link and is gearing up to talk about all the Christian “New Testament” books. Currently he is covering the period between the two sets of books. I can’t recommend this podcast series highly enough. Cheers!
