56: Falling Short of the Promise (Numbers 32-36)

A few of the tribes decide to cash in their inheritance before crossing the Jordan, and we talk about what that means in the long run. Also, a shout out to everyone named Joseph! And we finish the fourth of five books in the Torah!

55: Women Get An Inheritance (But Only Some) and a Priest Stabs People (Numbers 25-31)

God (allegedly) sanctions bullying, Ryan avoids a low-hanging pun, Israel yokes themselves to other gods, Jeremy reminisces about writing controversial hardcore song lyrics, the last of the old generation die (except Moses), Trogdor, women get an inheritance (under specific circumstances) and people get killed…again.

54: Balaam’s Talking Donkey (Numbers 21-24)

What are “fiery serpents”? There’s a cool foreshadowing of the Cross, a king hires a dude to curse Israel, but he can’t help but speak blessings! What a crazy time. Oh, and a donkey speaks. No biggie.

53: Moses Strikes The Rock (Numbers 20)

Miriam dies, Edom refuses to let Israel walk through his lawn, and Aaron likewise kicks the bucket. Also this episode: everyone’s favourite segment, “Tell Us What This Chapter Is About In Less Than Five Seconds”, Dwayne Johnson, Nicholas Sparks and a few dodgy audio issues.

52: People Killed For Picking Up Sticks? (Numbers 15-17)

We try out a new segment, we discuss playing Pick-Up Sticks, and we also cover the rebellion of Korah. Does God just kill people willy-nilly? The earth swallows some lads and we try to decipher the meaning behind the story. Also, Aaron’s staff buds and produces ripe almonds.

51: Spies, Giants and Grapes (Numbers 13-14)

Moses sends out a dozen blokes, most of whom convince an entire generation of Israelites that they’re grasshoppers in comparison to the inhabitants of Canaan. How big was that bunch of grapes? Why was the nation so against setting out to conquer the Promised Land right away? What were they planning on making out of the milk and honey in the land? A smoothie?

50: Quail and Quarrelling (Numbers 10b-12)

The Israelites go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah; obscure Narnia quotes; Keith Green references; renaming brothers-in-law “Hobab”; Israel insists on quarrelling and making a fuss. Silly Israel.
