In this episode, Heather, Alyssa, and Jonee discuss how Mormons perceive and use the Bible. They then discuss whether the Mormon view of the Bible matches up with what scholars know about the history of the Bible and early Christianity. This episode is a prelude to an upcoming series about the historical relationship between women and the priesthood in both early Christianity and Mormonism.
