The Theme of East in the Bible
Play • 54 min

In this stand-alone episode, Ryan and Steph explore the fascinating symbolism of east in the Bible. On the first page of the Bible, we are told that God plants a garden on the east side of Eden. After the humans rebel, God expels them eastward. As you continue reading the biblical story, humanity keeps moving further east, away from the Garden of Eden. But, the prophets envisioned a day when humanity would ultimately return to Eden.
