Episode: Erin Heim and Dru Johnson discuss Erin's paper "Resurrection and the #MeToo Movement," which is part of a larger project that Erin is working on as she wrestles theologically with the sexual abuse that she experienced as a child. In this paper, she probes the connection between the abuse Jesus suffers in his crucifixion and his resurrection body.
Content warning: This episode contains some language and descriptions of torture and sexual assault.
