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.

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

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 his father’s legacy by making himself king and killing everyone in line ahead of him. Let’s just say things didn’t work out too well for him.

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

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!

58: Torah Wrap-Up (Deuteronomy 28-34)

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)

47: The year of Jubilee! (Leviticus 20-27)

We wrap up Leviticus by talking about the Sabbath year and the year of Jubilee. We discuss how that could work today, and how to not go about it. We also talk about nicknames and how people insist on calling Ryan “Luke”, even if they haven’t met him before. Weird.

37: Various Laws (Exodus 21-31)

Slavery, kidnapping, butt henna, and various other laws. The good times roll as we leaf through 10 chapters.

33: Jethro’s Advice: The Judicial System (Exodus 18)

Moses plays Judge Judy for 2.5 million people, so his father-in-law, who was quite possibly younger than him, gave him a metaphorical slap in the face. Good on ya, Jethro.
