James Tissot's "The Wisdom of Solomon"

With the glory of a Kingdom come the temptations of a Kingdom. God promises his faithful, however, a future, everlasting Kingdom in his own image.

In this series of 33 podcast episodes, the Christian mythic narrative is presented in its entirety: from a God who pre-exists time to the unending destiny of the human race. The story begins in "Part 1: Creation."

Christianity is an historical religion: to be converted in mind to Christianity – or, put differently, to begin to see the world anew through the Catholic imaginative vision – one must understand this story of redemption.

Episode 15: David and the Kingship

"David Attacks the Ammonites," by Gustave Dore

"He raised up David to be their king; of whom he testified and said, 'I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.' Of this man's posterity God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, as he promised" (Acts 13:22-23).

Episode 16: The Temple and the Prophets, Destruction, and Exile

"The Prophet Amos," by Gustave Dore

"'When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you, and I will fulfill to you my promise and bring you back to this place. For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you'" (Jeremiah 29:10-12).

Episode 17: Return and Rebuild, and Hope for the Messiah

"The Rebuilding of the Temple is Begun," by Gustave Dore

"Thus says the Lord God: 'Behold, I will open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people; and I will bring you home to the land of Israel... And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land; then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done it,' says the Lord" (Jeremiah 29:12, 14).

This 33-part podcast series was co-produced with Slaking Thirsts. These episodes (and the entire series in one file) are also available at the Prime Matters YouTube channel and on our podcast channels: Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Stitcher.
