On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (07/17/23), Hank addresses a mistake many skeptics make by confusing Old Testament servanthood with modern notions of slavery. Hank explains that much of the slavery described in the Old Testament is similar to work for hire today whereby people would sell themselves into slavery to discharge a debt.

Hank also answers the following questions:

  • Is the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 and 39 referring to the future? Many point to the rapture and the tribulation. What are your thoughts on this? (0:40)
  • If Solomon was so wise, why did he make such grievous mistakes? (7:20)
  • Is the idea of expecting God’s favor biblical? (15:10)
  • How should we interpret Proverbs 18:21, where it says the tongue has the power of life and death? (18:40)
  • Are the first few chapters of Genesis historical or allegorical? (22:06)
