Rules, rules, rules! Everyone’s always saying that the Bible is full of “rules” we have to “follow” because “God” said so or “something.” If you’ve been listening to OMGWTFBIBLE, David Tuchman’s brand-new translation of the Hebrew Bible, you might be wondering where those rules are hidden with all the explosions and wacky sex stuff going on.

Well, it’s time for rules, starting with part six of Exodus, “Mishpatim,” in episode 28.1 Sha James is the guest, and the two discuss just how much these rules can be applied to life. Does the Bible have anything to say about vaccines? Maybe! Listen and find out.

David Tuchman translated the Tanakh as a comedy and called it OMGWTFBIBLE. Each month on his podcast, he calls up a different guest to read as many chapters of OMGWTFBIBLE as they can while they both make fun of it.

Jewcy is the proud (internet) co-host of OMGWTFBIBLE. Read more about the project here, and listen to previous episodes here.

Check back here in a few days for the next installment of OMGWTFBIBLE. David will be reading the next live show with in New York at Beauty Bar on March 23!
