OMGWTFBIBLE: God Plans to Obliterate Egypt’s Entire Army in Cold Blood

Also: It’s the Reed Sea, not the Red Sea. Read More

By / December 7, 2014

Have you ever set a plan in motion and slowly watched the pieces move into place? Did that plan involve pretty much murdering a country’s entire army in cold blood? If so, you’re just like Yehovah in episode 26.1 of OMGWTFBIBLE, preparing the Reed Sea (A.K.A. the Red Sea) for his planned drowning of the Egyptians.

This episode, host David Tuchman is joined by ad exec and Modern Orthodox Jew Michael Schreiber to read “Beshalach,” the fourth portion in the book of Exodus. The Reed Sea is about to split in two, and Michael has a lot to say about the forces that are dividing the Jewish community. Listen to it all here!

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 week for the next installment of OMGWTFBIBLE. The next live show will be recorded at the Limmud conference in England in late December, but David will be hosting an open mic in New York before he departs for the U.K.! Bring your most horrible holiday stories to Beauty Bar on December 22 at 7:30 PM and share them with the world!
