Advent 2019 Week 3 with John Greco

Episode 5 | Released Dec 16, 2019 Advent Week 3 Special guest: John Greco

On this episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams try to stump She Reads Truth content director, John Greco, with all their Christmas questions. When exactly was Jesus born? Was the “inn” really an inn? Were animals present? What about the wise men? How could Joseph and Mary afford to flee to Egypt? Why do we still have so many questions about a story we’ve known since we were kids? 

Armed with neon ski caps and cups of coffee, the trio ventures down these and other rabbit trails related to the Christmas story, asking, “What does Scripture actually say?” They find some answers and oddities along the way, and find, once again, that God’s Word only grows richer under the microscope of our honest questions.
