How ought we interpret Jesus’s call to decisive loyalty (and the warnings that accompany them)? Is eternal, conscious torment truly the punishment that awaits the disloyal?

In this episode we examine one of Jesus’s most disturbing parables, indeed one of the texts from which the church historically derived the picture of hell.

And while such anguish may not be what Jesus intends to express, he is very much calling people to a decision: We must choose towards which age we direct our lives, and the choice matters.

The text for this episode is Luke 16:14-31 (NRSV).
