A listener asks, "What really is God's name?" Does it matter if we refer to God as Yahweh or Jehovah? Do we need to use the divine name or can we just use titles like God or Lord? Marlin fills in a little biblical backstory and argues that using God's name is helpful, but not strictly necessary.

What does Scripture have to say about loaning money at interest? Do Old Testament prohibitions apply to us? How does collecting interest fit with working with our own hands and being productive? 

Stephen Russell gives us glimpses into how the church has thought about this over the last two millenia, and how Christian thinking changed as economic systems changed. Stephen calls us to see God’s heart as revealed in the Old Testament year of Jubilee.
