Happy St. George’s Day Lads! This week on the Nicean Council General Belisarius, Borzoi, and guest Not-producer Kenny hold you hand as you Begum Chrispian XDDDD. Unfortunetly Kenny was upstaged by special guest Woody Woodpecker; in all seriousness, we apologise for the distracting audio, we promise to ensure it does not happen again. I tried my best in post to clean it up but it is still there. Normally an episode with such technical difficulties would not be uploaded but this episode was fantastic and it did not make sense to not make it available to you guys. A bit more of a relaxed episode this week none the less there is still plenty of meaty theology and insightful discussions to enjoy. We have stopped getting suggestions for who you would like to hear in Saint or Heretic of the week. Email, comment or tweet at us who you think we should cover next.
Happy Easter from everyone here on the Godcast! This week on the Nicean Council Arthur Wellesley, RightWingNut, and Borzoi discus all things Easter related. We tackle the resurrection from an objective standpoint and see what evidence there is for it. Next we see what Jesus got up to when he died and if he was in Hell/Hades or Limbo/Purgatory. In the second half of the show we tackle the myth that Easter is a Pagan holiday appropriated by Christians, as well as examining the history of the traditions that we are accustomed to today.
