Gospels Pt. 13 – Cloats (Trademark Pending)

Ep. 23

Episode Notes

Zacchaeus the Tax Collector

What does it take to get Jesus’ attention when you’re vertically challenged? Hope you’re good at climbing trees. If you are, hope you have space for Jesus to invite himself over for the night.

Parable of the Ten Minas / Bags of Gold

We discuss prosperity gospel cultists’ favorite parable about needing to gain interest on your money in order to win God’s love.

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem

We arrive at the first Palm Sunday. Jesus has to figure out how to ride a donkey and a colt simultaneously. You remember that commercial where Jean Claude Van Damme did the spits between two moving semi trucks? https://youtu.be/M7FIvfx5J10

Fig Tree & The Money Changers

It’s finally time to discuss Lindsay’s favorite story about Jesus killing a tree because it’s not in season. We do a deep dive into the likely reason why this crazy story was written. Also, what does it have to do with the story of the money changers?

And we also talk about the Parable of the Two Sons and the Parable of the Tenants. Not worthy of their own break downs, just honorable mentions for SEO purposes.
