  • The Winds of Lilith

    Welcome to the final installment of season 3! There's a few treats awaiting! First is the continuation of the interview with the exorcist duo the Birdsongs. They go over the hardest case Father Birdsong has dealt with in his time in the ministry, that of Paula who goes around with a bag of dolls. He also goes into detail of some of the demons that have surfaced during this investigation, one of which is of course our good friend Lilith.This is then followed up with a review and thoughts on perhaps the most impactful film I have ever seen on the subject of demonic possession, and that is not a claim that I make lightly. Will you also see perhaps a glimmer of what season 4 will bring? Only listening may reveal the truth!JJ will be the guest on Vestiges after Dark on Tuesday, August 29th at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central.

  • 8. Reverberations through Time

    Come on a journey through time as I take a look at the Dead Sea Scrolls, their importance, the effect they had on academia as a whole, and their overall importance. I then embark on an analysis of my favorite scroll, 4Q510-11, and how it helps determine not just the mindset of the Essenes but also perhaps the Second Temple period itself.
