Episode 15: The Promise that Should Have Been Broken

Drew wrestles with the tough question of Jephthah: Did he really offer his daughter as a burnt offering? Or are other interpretations possible?

Correction: At one point, Drew lists Amon as a king of Judah who offered human sacrifices and calls him Manasseh’s grandfather. While Amon probably did offer human sacrifices, he was Manasseh’s son. Ahaz was Manasseh’s grandfather. 2 Kings 16:3 says he “burned his son as an offering, according to the despicable practices of the nations whom the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.”
