Special Note: iTunes tells me that their software is optimized for a maximum of 300 episodes per podcast. Since the Old Testament has 929 chapters, I have broken up Reading the Old Testament with Jesus in Mind into four different podcasts. The one we have been doing so far is Reading the Old Testament with Jesus in Mind: Genesis through Ruth. We should be switching over today to Reading the Old Testament with Jesus in Mind: 1 Samuel through Esther. However, there is a “chicken-or-egg” issue with the iTunes Podcast Directory which I won’t tax you or me with explaining right now. Suffice it to say that I will continue publishing 1 Samuel in this podcast for a few days until iTunes lists the new podcast. I’ll post a note when the duplication ceases and those of you listening through iTunes have to switch over to the new “1 Samuel through Esther” podcast. Until then, you’ll see two audio players in the daily post (one for the “Genesis through Ruth” podcast and the other for the “1 Samuel through Esther” podcast.) Sorry for the confusion.
The good news for those who you who listen on the “mike gantt” app is that none of this affects you. Nothing at all will change for you through this transition that affects only the iTunes and other podcast listeners.
Reading the Old Testament with Jesus in Mind (podcast)
There is an app that will allow you to automatically download this daily podcast to practically any smartphone. Just go to your smartphone’s app store and search on “mike gantt.”
Warning: If you are not already familiar with the New Testament, I would not advise you to listen to this podcast at this time. First, get your grounding in the New Testament. You can begin with one of these Bible Reading Plans which are focused on Jesus. You can also listen to my podcast series Reading Through the New Testament a Chapter a Day (SCNT). The Old Testament needs to be understood in the light of the New Testament; this is what Jesus taught us. Therefore, we today read and understand the Old Testament through the lens of the New Testament.
