The Apocalypse of Judas

The Apocalypse of Judas

April 17, 2021

Welcome to the first in a new series of episodes on Yeshua, colloquially known as Jesus Christ, starting with the Apocalypse of Judas--one of a few Gnostic texts discovered in the 1970s, separate from the Nag Hammadi Library. It’s a text that greatly reframes the Biblical character of Judas… or does it? Join AL and Bee in contextualizing the cultural landscape that Yeshua entered, as well as unpacking some key moments from the text and considering what implications they have for the overall narrative and role of Yeshua.

Connecting the DOTS with Christian

April 3, 2021

**Content Warning: This episode contains open and frank conversation about depression and addiction after spiritual schisms and suicidal thoughts. If any of that is unsafe or upsetting for you, please do skip this one!**

Hi, Bee here! This week, I sat down with a Gnostic Christian named Christian, who is also the first listener to write into the show and come on an episode! Christian shares about his upbringing in the church, the arguments that Intelligent Creationists make against Evolutionary Theory, the study that ultimately changed his mind, and much, much more. It was truly a conversation that I'm grateful to have had and a huge thank you to Christian for sharing his story. I hope you’ll enjoy it!!

On the Origin of Darwin

On the Origin of Darwin

March 20, 2021

Divine Spark stands firmly against ignorance and hate and in solidarity with our AAPI community and listeners. 

What’s up, Seekers? Today’s lesson is all about our final Illuminator/Authority figure: Charles Darwin! Join Bee and AL as they dig into Darwin’s fascinating upbringing, which includes a potential career switch from scientist to priest?!, and a ton of rare delicacies that may or may not get your mouth watering! But perhaps the biggest revelation is not Evolution itself, but how Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection, aka Survival of the Fittest, was used to create the ultimate ethical and political dilemma: Eugenics.

Connecting the DOTS with Jason

January 23, 2021

In this exciting new episode, Bee sits down with one of the Artistic Directors and founders of Divine Spark, Jason, to discuss Exodus, cycles of oppression, the mystical and the practical, the truths about freedom as a concept and how best to move forward in terms of government. It’s a conversation that was recorded before the Inauguration in the United States, but one that only gains traction as we move into this new political era where the responsibility does lie with the people to keep pushing the government forward.
