At first glance it may seem odd to think that sin has a history – but it does.  The saga of sin is a long journey with many twists and turns.  In this series we’ll see that there are several different meanings of sin in the Old Testament.  We’ll show that even Jesus and Paul did not share the same understanding of sin.  And we’ll trace the evolution of sin through some of the important theologians of the early Church.  Join us for the history of sin from Adam to Augustine.
