OMGWTFBIBLE: In Which the Torah Gets All Sacrificial and Bloody, Narrative Be Damned

Tune in to learn more about animal sacrifices and Alan Dershowitz! Read More

By / April 27, 2015

Are you ready to be grossed out? In Episode 30.2 of OMGWTFBIBLE, the narrative of the Bible completely breaks down. We’ll be frank: it just turns into graphic depictions of bloody, bloody sacrifices. Why is this holy or important? We don’t know, but it sure is fun to listen to.

Check out Catie Lazarus, host of “Employee of the Month,” as she reads David Tuchman’s bible translation now! You might learn something about animal sacrifices or at least about Alan Dershowitz.

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 next week for the next installment of OMGWTFBIBLE. David will be reading the next live show in New York at Beauty Bar with Shulem Deen, author of All Who Go Do Not Return, on April 27!
