78: Samson, Master of Riddles (Judges 13-14)

12/16/2018
More
The promised son to a couple of Danites grows up to be a bit of a thug (a holy thug…sometimes). Turns out he has a bit of a thing for foreign women, riddles and murder. What do you think?

77: Abimelech, Gideon’s Worst Son (Judges 9-10)

12/12/2018
More
We all roughly know the story of Gideon and his 300 men, but did you know Gideon didn’t finish his life like a judge was supposed to? He had heaps of kids and thought of himself as a king. One of his 70 (yes, SEVENTY) sons, Abimelech, was a total tool-bag. He thought he would … Continue reading 77: Abimelech, Gideon’s Worst Son (Judges 9-10)

76: Gideon’s 300 (Judges 7-8)

12/4/2018
More
After a lengthy cliff-hanger, we resume the tale of Gideon, a nobody who God chooses to be judge over all Israel. Do you know how Gideon’s story ends? It may not be as you may suspect. Tune in to hear us talk about being sore losers and sore winners. What do you think? Did we … Continue reading 76: Gideon’s 300 (Judges 7-8)

75: Gideon Lays a Fleece (Gideon 6-7a)

11/26/2018
More
Gideon was a pretty insignificant person when God called him a “mighty man”. Not only that, but he also required a lot of reassurance that God wasn’t playing a trick on him. We discuss if his “making sure” was really putting God to the test (a sin), or if God used it to weed out … Continue reading 75: Gideon Lays a Fleece (Gideon 6-7a)

74: Deborah, the Female Judge (Judges 4-5)

11/24/2018
More
We discuss why it was significant that God raised up a female judge during a cultural patriarchy. Also, this story features one of the gnarliest deaths recorded in the Bible. Let’s just say someone wasn’t a happy camper… What do you think? Did we miss anything? Let us know!

73: Ehud, the Left-handed Assassin (Judges 3)

11/19/2018
More
We’re all familiar with this story. A left-handed man stabs a fat king until the sword disappears in his rolls. What did this mean for Israel? Who was Ehud? Why was being left-handed significant? What can we learn from this story? Was anyone else described as “obese” in the Bible? All these questions and more … Continue reading 73: Ehud, the Left-handed Assassin (Judges 3)

72: Ruth and Naomi (Ruth 1-4)

11/14/2018
More
We interrupt this jaunt in Judges to bring you the story of a widow from a neighbouring nation; a woman who makes quite an impact on events moving forward. Not to spoil anything, but her story intersects with that of another significant female figure which we covered in the last book. We follow the tale … Continue reading 72: Ruth and Naomi (Ruth 1-4)

71: Israel’s First Civil War (Judges 20-21)

11/4/2018
More
The tribe of Benjamin chuck a Sodom and Gomorrah and do something terrible, only this time there aren’t angels to interfere and strike everyone with blindness. THEN, they act all defensive when the other tribes get upset. THEN, they go to war against the rest of the country. THEN heaps of people die. Such a … Continue reading 71: Israel’s First Civil War (Judges 20-21)

70: A Levite’s Concubine Cut Into Pieces (Judges 19)

10/28/2018
More
During the time of Othniel, the first Judge, Israel is in a pretty bad spot. This story follows a Levite and his concubine as they are left to their own devices. What results is a pretty gruesome sign being mailed to each of the tribes of Israel. In this episode, Jeremy and Ryan get confused … Continue reading 70: A Levite’s Concubine Cut Into Pieces (Judges 19)

69: Othniel, the First Judge (Judges 1-3a)

10/21/2018
More
Israel is beginning to spiral out of control following the death of Joshua. They’ve taken Jerusalem, but then they are oppressed by Cushion Man and his forces for a number of years. Who will God rise up to deliver the people? None other than Caleb’s nephew/son-in-law (don’t think about it), Othniel! What do you think? … Continue reading 69: Othniel, the First Judge (Judges 1-3a)

68: Micah’s Household Idols (Judges 17-18, 1)

10/16/2018
More
Lithuanian language tricks, a guy gets a personal priest and worships idols, which get stolen by other Israelites and worshiped elsewhere. How the people have fallen! We lay the ground work before we talk about the first judge. What do you think? Did we miss anything? Let us know! Ryan later finds out that Dan … Continue reading 68: Micah’s Household Idols (Judges 17-18, 1)

10/10/2018

We begin our look at this juicy book by talking about how it was compiled in order of depravity, not chronology. We also talk about how sock wrestling could be made more interesting….

Another book has come and gone. This time, we discuss tribal land allotments, roasts, deal with a couple internet issues, hear about how Jeremy and Ryan met, conclude our thoughts on Joshua and the conquest of Canaan, ask some dumb questions and undoubtedly get a bunch of things wrong.

65: Was the Conquest of Canaan Justified? (Joshua 11-19)

10/1/2018

We discuss the morality of Israel slaughtering whole towns, and whether “the God of the New Testament” was really behind it. We also talk about inheritance again, and how to dress when the weather starts changing. Do you agree or disagree with anything we said in this episode?

64: The Day the Sun Stood Still (Joshua 9-10)

9/24/2018

Achan’s dumb sin has been done away with, so God is able to deliver Ai into the hands of the Israelites. Joshua yells at the sun and it doesn’t set. Was this the summer solstice, or something else?
