Summary

In today’s episode, Fr. Paul concludes his reading of Genesis 11, continuing his discussion of the Toledot of Terah, noting the importance of the name Nahor. Fr. Paul illuminates his reading of chapter 11 by taking time to review examples of equestrian imagery from the Book of Job and Psalms. Over the past one hundred or so episodes, Fr. Paul has repeatedly emphasized the importance, first, of Genesis 1-4, and later Genesis 1-11. With this in mind. before we move on to chapter 12, Richard and I thought it would be helpful for Fr. Paul to take a pause and revisit these these texts from a different angle. We’ll say a bit more about this in our introduction to this program next week, so stay tuned. (Episode 103)
