This is our pilot episode of the Mayberry Bible Study Podcast. I hope you enjoy your visit to Mayberry and grow at least a little bit in your walk to be more like Christ as well. I know that ANY study of God’s word is helpful so even a study inspired by The Andy Griffith Show can be used by Him.

Luke Comstock, an ex-con, returns to Mayberry to see Andy about him having shot Luke in the leg during a robbery years ago. It crippled him and sent him to prison. Barney is convinced that Comstock is seeking revenge so he overreacts a little. Barney’s paranoia then spreads to Gomer, Otis, Aunt Bee, and Opie. Along with faith and courage, this episode also looks at repentance and forgiveness.
