Apologies for the late posting: Matt is traveling today so I’m publishing the podcast this week, except I’m also moving tomorrow and have two small children, and one in particular who excels at unpacking the things we just packed.

Anyway, here is this week’s episode of Mere Fidelity, which features the full cast and crew discussing the book of 1 Kings. This is going to be the first of a series of episodes on 1 and 2 Kings.

(To find out if the Brits say “One Kings” or “First Kings” you’ll have to listen.)

All usual Mere Fidelity notes, which I’m just taking from Matt:

If you enjoyed the show, leave us a review at iTunes. If you didn’t enjoy the show, let us know and we’ll work to make it better. Or we’ll ignore you, and you’ll feel better for having vented your feelings. We are here to help, either way. And if you want to subscribe by RSS, you can do that here.

If you’re interested in supporting the show (you know, with money), you can check out our Patreon here.

Finally, as always, follow Derek and Andrew for more tweet-sized brilliance.  Thanks to Timothy Motte for his sound editing work. And thanks to The Joy Eternal for lending us their music, which everybody should download out of gratitude for their kindness.

  2. If it is First Kings, why isn’t it written 1st Kings?
