In our latest Mere Fidelity podcast, I join Derek Rishmawy and Andrew Wilson to discuss the huge question of Christocentric hermeneutics.
Among other things in the podcast, we discuss the meaning of the scarlet cord in the story of Rahab in Joshua 2. Peter Leithart has a helpful piece on that story here. I also comment on it here (see the rest of my 40 Days of Exoduses posts for similar readings). I argue that Rahab and other such figures are not just intertextually related, but are types that point towards the new Eve, who outwits the tyrant/serpent and whose seed crushes his head.
Take a listen and leave any thoughts in the comments!
