Here it is! The massive, water-filled set piece! One of the last action scenes in the Bible for a very long time! God murdering so many people! It’s all in episode 26.2 of OMGWTFBIBLE, featuring David Tuchman and Michael Schreiber.

This is the big event God’s been prepping for for centuries. It all goes down this week. But more importantly, Michael and David explore a problem with the casting of Christian Bale as Moses that hasn’t come up elsewhere. What’s the problem? Who would they cast? 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!
