The story of Jephthah sacrificing his daughter is one of the Bible's worst stories. Does the Bible condone child sacrifice? Is the Bible sexist and violent? What are we to make of this awful story?

We ask international speaker and author Mike Raiter some Bigger Questions as he helps us think through a dark and difficult part of the Bible.

This episode was recorded before a live audience in June 2016.
