In part 1, we find the Israelites struggling to maintain a world view as everything goes wrong. Eventually the entire religious system falls apart, the old God is destroyed, and the last remnant of Judean culture is trapped in exile. But sometimes hope comes in weird places.P.S. If this recording is too quiet, we are sorry! If it's really hard to listen at this volume, you may want to skip to Gideon, Episode 6, at which point we have fixed this issue.
