5. The Promised Land

Religious Studies



9m 36s
This is the term used to describe the Land of Israel in the Bible and Maureen and Clive give us the background to the idea and the history of the Jewish relationship with this piece of real estate. In this podcast, we don’t discuss the current political situation there – that comes in the next podcast – but Clive and Maureen set the scene, exploring the sometimes difficult idea of how this kind of very physical and historical thing can be part of religion, which most people tend to think is only really about spiritual and ethical things.

Used by British and International schools around the world
