ON THIS WEEK'S COME RECEIVE THE LIGHT

What is the Orthodox Church's understanding of the Fall and "Original Sin"? How did the Early Christians understand Adam and Eve? And what do the hymns of the Orthodox Church tell us about this topic? Tune in to this week's episode as Dr. Justin Jackson conducts an engaging discussion on how these questions inform our understanding of ourselves and our current relationship with God.
