If a myth, what was the reason for the inclusion of the brief passage in Matthew that originated their legend?  If you are thinking of starting a podcast or want some help with the podcast you already make, contact me the Podcast Professor at [email protected] to talk about our audio editing and consultation services.  Further support the show by giving a one-time gift at paypal.me/NathanLeviLloyd or by signing up for a 2-week trial of The Great Courses Plus or a 30-day trial of Audible.   Background music, including "April," "Seeker," "Brave New World," "Periculum," "Laburnum," "Modum," "Meekness," "Brooks" and "Holiday Gift" are by Kai Engel, licensed under Creative Commons (CC BY 4.0).   Additional music:  Canon in D Major Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Angels We Have Heard on High Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Wish Background Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Learn more about your ad choices.
