    Professor Harland, I do not believe there is any content in the 4.1 and 4.2 podcasts. Thank you for the others.

    I would like to hear more about the Mysteries and the influence that the Egyptian Institute had on the Greek culture.

    Great job.

    The “paganism” of the Greeks and Romans always seems to be described quite negatively. Refreshing to see an objective look at their Gods. I’m still on the 3rd podcast, but I’ve already learned a lot. You’ve already covered the communal concept of the wealthy providing goods to the poor (of course in exchange for honor), but I’m curious to see how they view concepts like love and togetherness too. Was the New Testament gospel message of “loving your neighbor” a completely novel concept to them? Maybe it was, because Jesus was pretty unique. But maybe not. I’m curious now. Anyway, interesting podcast and will probably finish it today.
