EP96 (Judges 6-7) Its depression month on the Bible Beater’s podcast. Caleb is sober and Kyle has lowered his bar for happiness. But there is good news! The boring part of the bible is behind us and its great stories from here on out! We are introduced to the legendary Gideon (least of his name) and the most mundane miracles you have ever heard about. A listener asks some pointed questions about Stacey the prophet.
EP95 (Judges 5) Back from Israel Caleb gets right back to trolling Facebook. The bible beaters wade into the federal election with some very progressive ideas. We read the song of Deborah which is very confusing to Kyle. We learn about some writing problems with ancient Hebrew. Caleb breaks down how argue against a Christian. A listener asks us about salvation and the rigamarole surrounding the crucifixion.
EP94 (Judges 5) A live podcast from the holy land with Simeon Campbell as a guest. Caleb and sim tell us about the places and historical sites they visited and about some of the jesus freaks they are stuck with. Very little bible reading is accomplished.
EP93 (Judges 3-4) Kyle’s buddy demonstrates how not to do a best man speech. The bible beaters discuss the merits of young children being needed in heaven. Next we learn of 3 total bad-ass judges Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar. Othniel was a great general, Ehud stabbed a really fat guy, and Shamgar killed 600 people with an ox goad. Finally, we learn of the first feminist in the bible. Deborah does the job no man wanted to do. We get more emails about the origin of the universe.
(Judges 1-2) Caleb is worried about government intervention in his relationship and has a negative interaction with hecklers at a show. Kyle remembers when he was good at hockey. God tries to help the Jews except their enemies have iron chariots which are too powerful. An angel shows up and tells all the Israelites that its just a matter of time before they get on gods bad side.
A listener sends us a fantastic email, causing our hosts to question their perceptions of reality. This email suggests that all of the different races humanity came from four couples.
EP91 (Joshua 24-Judges 1) Caleb provides a list of things about the bible that are demonstrability false. Once again god re ups on his previous covenant with more of the same. It follows the traditional format of bragging, warnings, blessings, curses and prophecy that things will eventually go to hell. Kyle is at his most annoying in the history of the podcast derailing several interesting conversations. The Isrealites finish the conquest of the promised land in spectacular fashion cutting off the fingers and toes of SEVENTY kings and feed them scraps as the lord commanded in his infinite wisdom and mercy.
