About this Episode

Should the events in the book of Jonah be taken as history? Did they really happen, or is it a parable? And are those even the right questions to be asking? How do we approach translating and interpreting Jonah, or any Old Testament book? To discuss these questions and more, the guys sit down with Dr. Robert Alter.
