Episode 64: What happened to all the nard?

ostrich nard 5Join Gini and Tim for an exciting episode where we explore one of the most hopeful verses in Scripture (“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?“) and discuss ancient wildlife. (And seriously, how would someone transport a bunch of ostriches?)

Then we turn to one of the few stories in the Bible that triggers our sense of smell. Mary (sister to Martha and Lazarus) uses a whole jar of expensive perfumed ointment – or nard – to anoint Jesus’ feet. The fragrance filled the whole house. Hear a first-century take down of Judas, and Gini’s defense attorney nature kick in. There’s a lot here this week! We hope you enjoy it!

As always, the readings may be found at lectionarypage.net.
