S02 E10 3 Days & Virtues? (Tobit Ch.8)
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
In this episode, we move from Moral Virtues to Theological Virtues and connect them primarily to Ch. 7 & 8 of Tobit. In Ch.8, Tobiah has been instructed to pray with Sarah for 3 days and 3 nights before consummating their marriage. Why 3 days? What is the significance of "3 days" in Scripture? Stay tuned all the way to the end as we uncover the important Theological Implication of the 3-day timeline.
The Bible I am reading from is the New American Bible online version taken from the USCCB website: https://bible.usccb.org/bible/tobit/8. For the Book of Tobit, I also refer to the online version of Douay-Rheims Bible – which is a translation from the Latin Vulgate, while the NAB is translated from the Septuagint or the Greek version.
