    Hi guys,
    I had learned there are three ways to approach reading the Bible in general- anagogical, allegorical and literal. Yes, as far as the book of Genesis, people do go to the beginning and the beginning was the Word and the Word was God as John said. The Bible I read is from Oxford University and is a study Bible which helps me out a lot when I read it. Genesis is my favorite book because of the creation. Epic poetry for chapters 1-11 of Genesis is a good description from Trent. I think we should approach Genesis as anagogical, allegorical and literal as far as the creation of the universe and the fall of Adam and Eve.

    I just read The Language of God and can recommend that book to all. It was written by Francis Collins who started the Human Genome Project. Then there was the book Spiritual Passages I learned from as well although it was more textbook than opinion. Trent, I believe Moses wrote the Torah and had plenty of time to do so as he spent 40 years wandering in the desert talking with God.

    Trent, Paul Revere’s ride would have been a warning about invasion although you make a good point that most Americans considered themselves British at the time and maybe the historic ride never happened. Trent Horn was just on Catholic Feedback with Keith Nester. That too was a good show and he did a good job on another subject entirely. I believe it was about claims that the rites of Catholicism come from pagan traditions. I have to check out Catholic Answers since it comes highly recommended by those I listen to and respect in the Catholic talk show world. Reading Thucydides instead of reading Herodotus was a recommendation made by Trent to Ryan Scheel. (Two really good minds at work although Dellacrosse and Pagano are no slouches.)

    Good point about the Old Testament and our belief factor vs the facts laid out in the New Testament Ryan Scheel which is why we have to approach reading the Bible with our three senses. Three is also a number that figures greatly in the New Testament because of its reference to the Trinity.

    Trent, a talking snake could have been literal as in the voice of Satan or one of his minions. I have the Theist world view myself and I believe that God created our Universe and that He cares for each sinner and has a plan for each of us. God has personally been there for me when I was in total despair and under serious and traumatic spiritual warfare attack. If I had been a Deist at the time I would have converted immediately to Theism. (Deists believe that the Universe was created by God but a God who stepped away from His creation once done.)

    Just as a heads up Fr. Pagano, please explain any theological terms you choose to throw out to the laymen audience. Thank you. This is how we learn. As they say, never assume. You threw out one today I can’t even spell to research this time around.

    Trent Horn is definitely a learned individual and his voice and appearance remind me of the actor Mark Ruffalo just as an aside or a non sequitur. Having him on the show again is a great idea as he can discuss many theological subjects under Catholicism and add to your panel. He gets along well with others as far as ego.

    Thank you for another interesting podcast and take care!

    1. As always, thank you for the feedback! We always look forward to your thoughts on an episode and it is usually the first thing I check the day after a release to gauge viewer/listener reactions. – Scheel

        Hi Ryan, you are so very welcome and I so appreciate the huge compliment. Thank you so much! I am looking forward to you two guys in Live Chat today.

        Genesis chapter 1 is not Hebrew poetry it is a historical narrative. This article should help you guys understand what I am trying to say: https://creation.com/genesis-is-history. The creation account in Genesis 1 has a distinctive verb pattern. Hebrew poetry on the other hand has parallelism( Like the Psalms).
