Fr. Hans Jacobse and members of the UMBC Orthodox Christian Fellowship address the issue of violence in the Old Testament. Why is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob portrayed as a wrathful, tribal deity whereas the God of the New Testament appears humbling and loving? Did God change? How do we read our Bible? How have cultures changed since the time of the time of the Old Testament?

This is a part of the follow-up discussion with Father Hans following his debate with Matt Dillahunty of the Atheist Experience.

The topic of the debate was, "The Source of Human Morality."

"Father Hans Jacobse is an Antiochian Orthodox Priest, who administers the website Orthodoxy Today and heads the American Orthodox Institute. Fr. Hans is convinced that Orthodox Christianity has an important part to play in American moral renewal. He views the current world as a battle between competing moral visions of the secular and the sacred, and hopes that Christianity can restore the moral tradition of the gospels. "
