88: Saul’s First Victory (1 Samuel 11-12)

Saul cuts up some oxen and mails rare steaks all over the country, then leads a very strong force against the Ammonites. They pursue and obliterate the enemy, and Saul looks like he’s actually done something good. His very first act as a king is to mobilise the military and defend his people. Good on ya, Saul. I hope things always go this well for you.

85: Israel’s Catastrophic Defeat (1 Samuel 4-6)

Israel carries the ark of the covenant into battle under the false assumption that they will win if it is present…only, they don’t inquire of God beforehand. What results is a military defeat of catastrophic proportions, and the capture of the ark! Bad stuff all around.

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

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.

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

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…

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

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 answered on this riot of an episode.

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

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 over the wording of the ESV, talk about soup and just how fallen Israel was, right after they settled in Canaan.

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.
