In this podcast we begin a three-part visit with Bob O’Dell of Austin, Texas. Along with Gidon Ariel, Bob is co-founder of Root Source (https://root-source.com/), a ministry that helps Christians understand learn about Jewish concepts, ideas and thought, to more deeply understand the roots of their faith. Bob shares with us not only about his connection with Root Source, but another initiative called The Nations’ 9th of Av (https://9-av.com/). This grew out of Bob’s work with Ray Montgomery in compiling The LIST: Persecution of Jews by Christians Throughout History, a groundbreaking document that is already becoming an important tool in healing the rift between Christians and Jews.

Will Spires and Bill Green are our musical guests this week, and in our midrash portion David Jones and Barry Phillips addressing the Spirit of Offense.
