Who wrote the Bible?: Enslaved people and the New Testament with Candida Moss (S3:E5)

“Once we accept biblical collaboration as fact and recognize its participants as oppressed human beings who nevertheless had agency, we are forced to confront a truth that can be unsettling to some readers of scripture: that the meaning of the Bible is fluid.”

Welcome to In Search Of, a podcast where we go in search of voices and perspectives that inform and expand a life of faith. In this episode, scholar of early Christianity, Candida Moss, discusses the most recent publication of ancient papyri and what they say about women’s history in Christianity. We also learn about her new book on the role played by enslaved workers in the creation of the New Testament. All this and more on this episode of In Search Of. A transcript of this episode can be found here.
