On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/31/20), Hank encourages listeners that have not done so already, to pick up Jay W. Richards’s transformational book Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul—A Christian Guide to Fasting. When the subject of fasting comes up, so many people tune out, thinking that it’s not for them. But as Richards makes plain, fasting is for everyone—because we are body-soul unities. Richards quotes St. Leo the Great who said, “Fasting gives strength against sin, represses evil desires, repels temptation, humbles pride, cools anger, and fosters all the inclinations of a good will, even unto the practice of every virtue.” In the second segment, Hank ponders what time will be like in eternity, a thought caused by the two periods of unconsciousness he experienced in 2019.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Was Jesus out of communication with God while in Mary’s womb, or did he still sit at the right hand of God until his birth?
- When did historians first mention the Gospels? Is there any information on the dating of the Gospels?
