If you are looking for resources to stimulate your preaching this Holy Week and Easter, By the Well is a podcast for preachers brought to you by colleagues at Pilgrim Theological College and beyond.
For Palm Sunday, New Testament scholar Sean Winter and UCA minister Fran Barber discuss Psalm 118 and Luke 19:28-40, Luke’s portrayal of kingship, and the manner in which power is located and subverted in the narrative.
In the episode for Good Friday, Robyn Whitaker interviews Trinity’s Dorothy Lee about the particular nuances of John’s Passion (John 18-19) and talks to Andrew McGowan (Yale Divinity School) about his new book Seven Last Words: Cross and Creation, preaching on Good Friday, and theologies of atonement.
And for Easter Sunday, Kylie Crabbe (ACU) and Robyn Whitaker discuss the Easter Sunday readings (Isa 65, 1 Cor 15, John 20), the importance of resurrection for early Christians, and the challenge of capturing that mystery in our preaching today.
You can find these and other episodes of By the Well at www.bythewell.com.au or on any of the major podcast platforms (Apple podcasts, Spotify, Google podcasts, Stitcher).
