As we stated in episode 57, Deuteronomy is basically Moses’s speech at the end of his life, so we didn’t feel like we needed to hang out there too long! Moe dies on the mountain and Joshua takes over. Who wrote the last chapter of Deuteronomy if Moses supposedly wrote the whole Torah? What is Israel’s goal as they cross the Jordan and enter the Promised Land? All these and questions and more. (Also, a cheeky ska song)
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.
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.
God definitively states that “Throw another shrimp on the barbie” is a sinful saying, the original PKs get killed for offering up “strange fire”, but hey… they were probably in their fifties, so at least they got to live their lives. We also have a new Patreon supporter!
