Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists

By Husband and Wife
Husband and Wife are two non-believers who have always wanted to read the Bible. Why would we subject ourselves to this you might ask? From our perspective it helps us understand where the Christians around us, here in the Midwest, are coming from when they quote the Bible at us. Husband is basically an Atheist and wife leans Agnostic but mostly Atheist and we're just having some fun at the Bible's expense while learning more about what our neighbors claim we're going to hell over.

July 03, 2022
Asimov's Guide to the Bible - Sacrilegious Book Club
Husband and Wife cover pages 15-32 of Asimov's Guide to the Bible, in this episode of the Sacrilegious Book Club. Topics include Genesis, God, The Seventh Day, The Lord God, Man, Eden, The Euphrates River, The Serpent, and Eve. We hope you'll get a copy of the book and read along with us. Next time we will discuss pages 33-48.
32:31
July 03, 2022
2 Samuel Chapters 1 - 5 Q&A (Zion)
Husband and Wife cover questions about Zion. We learn that, when asking WTF is Zion, it really depends on history, geography, and religion. For now, it means Jerusalem, but that's subject to change as we get further thru the Bible.
19:32
July 02, 2022
2 Samuel Chapter 5 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 2 Samuel chapter 5: David Made King over Israel / David Captures Zion / Hiram's Recognition of David / David's Children Born at Jerusalem / David Defeats the Philistines. Ugh, everything is just David - David - David. We're a bit sick of him tbh. He gets kinged like a billion times. He murders people a billion times. He gets married a billion times and has a billion babies. Whatever, dude. We get it. You're God's special boy. Stop being such a pick-me.
20:04
July 01, 2022
2 Samuel Chapter 4 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 2 Samuel chapter 4: The Assassination of Ish-bosheth. We learn that David has a very strict and consistent code of honor. And Wife gets to use parenthesis voice again which is always fun!
13:10
June 30, 2022
2 Samuel Chapter 3 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 2 Samuel chapter 3: David Fights against the Forces of Saul (cont.) / David's Sons Born at Hebron / Abner Plans a League with David / Joab Kills Abner. Saul's son calls Abner a concubine-humping dog, which offends Abner so much he switches teams, but David wants his wife back, and Joab murders Abner before anything gets resolved, so it's all a hot mess.
21:20
June 29, 2022
2 Samuel Chapter 2 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 2 Samuel chapter 2: David Made King over Judah / David Fights against the Forces of Saul. Suddenly we learn that Saul had another son, who turns out was King of Israel for a hot minute, at the same time that David is King of Judah, which is all very confusing to Husband. A trip to the Pool of Morons solves nothing.
30:11
June 28, 2022
2 Samuel Chapter 1 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 2 Samuel chapter 1: David Learns of Saul's Death / David's Lament over Saul and Jonathan. The Bible continues to be full of contradictions as it's now unclear who killed Saul. David continues to prove he's a dick by committing an extremely unjustified murder. And we continue to be really bad at singing ridiculous OT songs.
16:17
June 27, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: 1 Samuel Chapter 31 Plus Specials

FVCK SCOTUS
Husband and Wife talk about the Supreme Court, the justices who comprise this crooked institution, and their three most recent decisions involving religion, guns, and abortion (the bedrock of all Christian faith), in this special episode for Patreon Members. It's a lengthy but essential discussion we hope you'll find useful.
02:37
June 26, 2022
Contradictions in the Bible - 1 Samuel
Husband and Wife play a new game called You're Always Wrong. You may be shocked to learn that we've found a few contradictions in the Bible. No wonder it's so easy to cherry- pick quotes to back up any claim!
21:42
June 24, 2022
Why Are There Two Books of Samuel?
Husband and Wife answer a question we've all been asking for a while now: Why the heck are there TWO books of Samuel? Particularly when my guy dies half way thru the first one? (tl;dr... It's the end of an era.) We also get distracted by the Dead Sea Scrolls because OBVIOUSLY.
22:37
June 23, 2022
Sacrilegious Book Club Asimov's Guide to the Bible Intro
Husband and Wife introduce Asimov's Guide to the Bible: Two Volumes in One - The Old and New Testaments (1981), in this inaugural episode of the Sacrilegious Book Club. We talk about Isaac Asimov, the book itself, and the introduction to this massive tome. We hope you'll get a copy and read along with us. Next time we'll cover thru page 32.
39:56
June 22, 2022
1 Samuel Wrap Up
Husband and Wife review the book of 1 Samuel as the story of Israel’s transition from a theocracy to a monarchy. Samuel was the last Judge, and only half of this book is even about him, so the title is questionable. We kick the quiz's ass and put this book to bed!
30:18
June 21, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 31 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 31: The Death of Saul and His Sons. The Philistines made Saul dead and took his head. They decided to install Saul's head on a wall. The Israelites saw Saul's head on the wall, and with a squall they decided to haul Saul home instead. And that's it for Saul, y'all!
13:21
June 20, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists: 1 Samuel Chapters 26 - 30 with Q&A

June 19, 2022
1 Samuel Chapters 26 - 30 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about that medium Saul talked to, as well as who tf Achish is and why he didn't recognize David the second time around.
20:10
June 18, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 30 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 30: David Defeats the Amalekites. David's guys are so wishy- washy in this chapter: "I love you ! I want to stone you to death! I'm super-dee-duper tired! Don't cross the streams! We shouldn't share! Give everybody everything!" Ugh, my neck hurts from the whiplash.
18:25
June 17, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 29 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 29: The Philistines Distrust David. David bats his eyelashes all innocent-like and goes, "Who, ME? I would NEVER." Even tho he totally did. David is a conniving, murderous liar but it's all okay because God loves him. Blah.
12:39
June 16, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 28 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 28: David Lives among the Philistines (cont) / Saul and the Medium at En-dor. The king goes to the planet of the ewoks and orders medium fries. Obviously that's not really what happened because ewoks aren't real. What actually happened is that Saul talked to a ghost because that is totally a thing that is real.
16:60
June 15, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 27 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 27: David Lives among the Philistines. David HIDES among the Philistines. David LIES among the Philistines. David RAIDS among the Philistines. David LOOTS among the Philistines. David ABUSES HIS PRIVELEGE among the Philistines. David is a real schmuck, y'all.
11:54
June 14, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 26 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 26: David Spares Saul at Ziph. Which is befuddling since didn't they already make up in the last chapter when David spared Saul while he was taking a wee? Anyways, they're friends again. Maybe. Who could know? (Wife MADE me leave in "anyways" FYI)
22:33
June 13, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists: 1 Samuel Chapters 21 - 25 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes 1 Samuel Chapters 21 - 25 and our Weekly Q&A.
01:54:06
June 12, 2022
1 Samuel Chapters 21 - 25 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about David's wives (there were eight) as well as Israelite wedding ceremonies (there were none). Then we reminisce on our tiny, catastrophic wedding, which is good timing since we just celebrated our 14th anniversary.
22:34
June 11, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 25 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 25: David and Abigail / Nabal Angers David. Not sure if this is relevant but oh hey Samuel is DEAD even tho we aren't done with this book yet and there's a whole second book in his name. This chapter brings us a cranky character with high blood pressure who dies of a stroke, and his bootlicker wife who goes on to marry David, who apparently just trades wives willy-nilly and honestly? He's kind of a jerk in our opinion.
30:16
June 10, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 24 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 24: David Spares Saul at Engedi. We learned that you probably shouldn't pee in a cave, but if you do, watch your hems because some creepster might sneak up and cut them off. And when THAT happens, be sure to thank the peeping Tom for not murdering you. Class dismissed.
15:10
June 09, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 23 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 23: David in the Wilderness. In spite of betrayal, David made it thru the wilderness; somehow he made it thruuu. He and Saul play Pop Goes the Weasel around a mountain. The Bible tells us that rock is great, and We 👏 Are 👏 Here 👏 For 👏 It.
21:07
June 08, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 22 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 22: David Flees from Saul (cont.) / Saul Kills the Priests of Nob. We engage in that age-old philosophical debate of when it's okay to be that guy who's "just following orders" versus when it's better to risk losing everything by standing up against evil. Obviously we reach a brilliant conclusion and solve all the world's problems (in no way whatsoever).
21:52
June 07, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 21 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 21: David Flees from Saul. My dude gets the giant's sword and goes on the lam, eating moldy bread, spinning lies, and drooling like a fool. Is David a king yet / now / again? Who could know!
13:45
June 06, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists: 1 Samuel Chapters 16 - 20 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes 1 Samuel Chapters 16 - 20 and our Weekly Q&A.
02:09:09
June 05, 2022
1 Samuel Chapters 16 - 20 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about David's timeline with Saul, cuz we seem to meet him for the first time, twice. We discover a couple interesting books which actually cover this confusing topic, and comment on the politics that cause such nonsense.
24:08
June 04, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 20 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 20: The Friendship of David and Jonathan. Saul is super mean to his son and then, in typical Saul style, he throws a spear at him, because obviously Saul is wacko. We're still convinced that Jonathan and David are an item, but too bad for them, because they have to break up. womp womp.
19:09
June 03, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 19 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 19: Saul Seeks to Kill David. Yes, again. He does more spear-throwing but of course it fails. Saul's daughter pulls a Ferris Bueller so David can run away and tattle to Samuel. Then Saul gets naked and lies in the road because he's super loopy. Apropos of nothing, we wanna hear your thoughts on the new Supernatural spin-off.
25:54
June 02, 2022
Gun Violence - Special Patreon Episode
Husband and Wife talk about the numbers regarding mass shootings in the US, rant about the lack of gun safety laws, and encourage listeners to get out and March for Our Lives, in this bonus discussion for Patreon members.
02:42
June 02, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 18 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 18: Jonathan's Covenant with David / Saul Becomes Jealous of David. Today we learn that Wife is only worth one measley foreskin. Jonathan and David become "besties" (pretty sure that's a euphemism) and Saul goes bananas. Probably from all the dead dick lying around, but what do we know?
24:49
June 01, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 17 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 17: David Kills Goliath / Israel Routs the Philistines. Some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey bs is happening because Saul has been fired twice but he's still the king, and David was made king and harpist but now he's just a ballsy kiddo that no one's ever heard of. We are v. disappointed to learn that Goliath is less a "giant" and more just a super tall ass hat with a nice shaft.
27:19
May 31, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 16 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 26: David Anointed King / David Plays the Harp for Saul. Samuel thinks David is super gorgeous and God is like "Stop judging a book by its cover" but then God gets inside David and even he admits this kid is hawt af. Saul has PMS and calls for the yummy boy to play a harp at him. mmmm
16:31

02:09:16
May 29, 2022
1 Samuel Chapters 11 - 15 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about the Tribe of Judah, as well as who tf Nahash was and why he was all obsessed with carving out people's eyes. Then we go off topic a bit and discuss the Dead Sea Scrolls; women subjugating themselves to men; and finances. It's a bit of a ride.
27:44
May 28, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 15 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 15: Saul's Disobedience and Rejection. Remember that time Saul was fired? But then he just kept being king anyway? Well he gets fired For Real this time. And God says he regrets ever making Saul king in the first place which kinda kills that whole "God can see the future" vibe.
26:52
May 27, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 14 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 14: Saul's Disobedience and Samuel's Rebuke (cont). Even tho Saul was fired, he still acts all kingy and leads his guys right up to the edge of the Philistine camp. His son Jonathon sneaks over and somehow causes mayhem, which is good for the Israelites, but then he eats honey, which a bad thing to do because reasons, and his dad is like, "You are so grounded, I'm gonna kill you!" Everyone knows that eating honey is a murderable offense. He doesn't die but it was really touch and go there for a sec.
29:26
May 26, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 13 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 13: War with the Philistines / Saul's Disobedience and Samuel's Rebuke. Bad luck! The Israelites army dwindles, Saul gets fired, and the Philistines have the upper hand. Dark night of the soul! All is lost! Worst day ever! &etc.
22:22
May 25, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 12 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 12: Samuel's Address to the People. Sammy gets all uppity and lectures the people on how awesome he is. Oops -- he meant to say how awesome GOD is. Sure you did, Sam. Okay.
18:39
May 24, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 11 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 11: Saul Defeats the Ammonites. This bad dude Nahash kept trying to steal everyone's right eye, but our guys aren't having it because they wanna keep both their collective eyes intact. Saul hears about the situation and goes berserk, slaughtering oxen and whatnot. But it's cool because he's a king now.
14:42
May 23, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists: 1 Samuel Chapters 6 - 10 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes 1Samuel Chapters 6 - 10 and our Weekly Q&A.
01:36:05
May 22, 2022
1 Samuel Chapters 6 - 10 Q&A
Husband and Wife answer questions about tumors and a little goddess called Ashtoreth. We talk about bleeding buttholes and diseased mice and illicit rites and Venus.
14:02
May 21, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 10 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 10: Saul Chosen King (cont.). Samuel has each tribe draw lots for absolutely no reason since Saul was already chosen to be king. I don't think Saul is excited tho because first he neglected to give his uncle the news, and then he hid in the baggage. The people, however, are all keen on this new setup, except for some nerf-herders and one-eyed Ammonite escapees.
27:29
May 20, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 9 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 9: Saul Chosen King. This guy from the rapey tribe of Benjamin, walking around all over the place looking for his lost asses, gets chosen to be king, which is kinda cool cuz he seems pretty humble. I guess God and Samuel changed their minds about messing with the Israelites for dissing Sammy's frat-boy, grifty-ass brats.
16:30
May 19, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 8 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 8: Israel Asks for a King. Turns out that Samuel with the good hair is a bad dad who neglected to teach his sons how to properly run a grift, so the peeps in town want a new boss. Samuel is like, "Fine. But if my kids can't be kings, I'ma choose the worst possible candidate to rule over y'all," because it turns out he's a dick too.
15:53
May 18, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 7 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 7: The Philistines Return the Ark (cont.) / Samuel Judges Israel. We have questions about fasting as a spiritual practice (aren't you really just hangry?). At Samuel's urging, the Israelites get rid of their false idols - but did they tho? We're no prophets, but it just doesn't very likely.
16:37
May 17, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 6 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 6: The Philistines Return the Ark. Gold tumors and rats are the truck nuts of the Bronze Age. And Indiana Jones had it right when he told Marion not to look at the Ark! That thing will either give you plagues, knock over your shit, or melt your face off.
16:37
May 16, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists: 1 Samuel Chapters 1 - 5 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes 1Samuel Chapters 1 - 5 and our Weekly Q&A.
01:48:60
May 15, 2022
1 Samuel Chapters 1 - 5 Q&A
Husband and Wife answer questions about this suddenly militaristic God, as well as Dagon. And now we wanna be Dagonists because it turns out he was way cooler than Yahweh. Plus his wife was known as "mistress who amazes the world" which is what I want to be for Halloween this year.
28:59
May 14, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 5 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 5: The Ark in the Land of the Philistines. It's not good, y'all. There are broken statues and lots of tumors and these guys are like, "um, can you have it back now, cuz we don't want it." Pretty sure the Philistines are about to throw the Ark back at the Israelites.
13:44
May 13, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 4 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 4: The Philistines Capture the Ark. Eli and his rapey sons bite the dust, as in a "shocking" turn of events, the Israelites lose the Ark of the Covenant during a battle with the Philistines. The wife of one of the rapey guys gives birth and names her son Loser before she dies too. And Samuel isn't even in this chapter!
18:30
May 12, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 3 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 3: The LORD Calls Samuel. God calls Samuel's name like five times and Sammy is like "whut" because he thinks it's Eli on account of God is seriously absent and doesn't do appearances so much anymore. Something shocking is going to happen but we're left in a year's-long cliffhanger. Eli is pretty chill about his fate and we are on pins and needles waiting to learn how this all pans out.
16:27
May 11, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 2 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 2: The Song of Hannah / The Sins of Eli's Sons. You'll be pleased to know we refrain from singing, but Wife does engage a Texas accent for no particular reason. God changes the details of previously made promises, but only after a lifetime of rape and fuckery has already occurred.
26:47
May 10, 2022
1 Samuel Chapter 1 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 1: The Birth of Samuel. Making fun of someone who can't have babies is just cruel, but as we've learned, the Bible is not lacking in mean-spirited bitchery. No worries, tho, as the bullied wife prays super hard, gets bullied AGAIN by a priest, gets preggers, and then drops her boy off with the bully priest. Makes total sense.
16:19
May 09, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: Ruth Chapters 1 - 4 with Q&A and Ruth Wrap Up
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Ruth Chapters 1 - 4 our Weekly Q&A and the wrap-up for Ruth.

33:02
May 07, 2022
Ruth Chapters 1 - 4 Q&A plus Ruth Wrap Up
Husband and Wife cover the Book of Ruth and learn about Oprah, lesbian icons, and some crazy fanfic about a certain giant's ancestry. Wife is a bit manic in this one and spills some juicy hot goss. Oh, and FYI: feet = dicks.
32:42
May 06, 2022
Ruth Chapter 4 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Ruth chapter 4 (*spoilers, Darling*): Boaz Marries Ruth. After purchasing his newest bride, he instantly impregnates her. Their son is supposed to be super famous but like I already can't even remember his name so...
19:17
May 05, 2022
Ruth Chapter 3 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Ruth chapter 3: Ruth and Boaz at the Threshingfloor. Naomi was like, "Gurl, wash your face, so I can sell you." And Ruthie got all dolled up for good prostituting and she won! After trying her out for himself, Boaz is gonna pass her around and see if there are any takers! The barley party was a smash and fun was had by all.
27:49
May 04, 2022
Ruth Chapter 2
Husband and Wife cover Ruth chapter 2: Ruth Gleans in the Field of Boaz. The barley party is in session! And Ruth doesn't even get raped, in spite of the fact that she's a Moabite! Bootstraps are fully engaged and Ruth is working it.
17:46
May 03, 2022
Ruth Chapter 1 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Ruth chapter 1. Naomi loses her husband and sons, but one of her daughters-in-law, Ruth, travels with her to a barley party. We're more cilantro-centric, but whatever gets you there.
13:18
May 02, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: Judges Chapters 16 - 21 with Q&A and Judges Wrap-up
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Judges Chapters 16 - 21 our Weekly Q&A and the wrap-up for Judges.
02:17:45
May 01, 2022
Judges Chapters 16 - 21 Q&A plus Judges Wrap-up
Husband and Wife review the Book of Judges. We talk about some weird legends surrounding Micah and his relation to false idols, as well as some political spin involving the Tribe of Dan. Husband toots his own horn and Wife finds a way to sleep better at night. No pop quiz this time but lots of commentary regarding Christian apologists.
34:17
May 01, 2022
Judges Chapter 21 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 21: Wives for the Benjamites. These nasty fucks wipe out an entire tribe and then unironically cry because an entire tribe has been wiped out. THEN they cry because the few remaining men have no wives, so they legit encourage the dudes to kidnap virgin girls from the annual dance off, and they tell the girls' fathers to be sympathetic to the kidnappers who (DUH) obviously NEED wives. And that is the story of our marriage. Ugh.
16:16
April 30, 2022
Judges Chapter 20 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 20: The War against the Benjamites. An entire town decides to stand behind their rapey rapers, and as a result, that town gets demolished. We aren't really sure how to feel about this turn of events, because on the one hand RAPE, but on the other hand ANNIHILATION. We ultimately conclude that the Bible sucks.
31:41
April 29, 2022
Judges Chapter 19 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 19: The Levite and His Concubine. *Trigger Warning* This section involves a horrific scene of gang rape. Apologies for our lack of words. We had a difficult time finding humor in this one. Peace and love to all.
17:51
April 28, 2022
Judges Chapter 18 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 18: Micah and the Danites. We visit the House of Mouse and steal Micah's idols so we can worship Micah's face ourselves after killing peaceful people who AREN'T worshipping false idols because we are the Tribe of Dan and as a silly group of foolish men that's just how we roll.
21:39
April 27, 2022
Judges Chapter 17 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 17: Micah's Images and His Priest. This kid steals silver out his mama's purse, but since he's honest about it after the fact, she makes an idol of him, which he makes into a mf altar, and this cannot possibly bode well, but he indentures a Levite to be his own personal priest, so I guess it's all gonna be okay?
10:05
April 26, 2022
Judges Chapter 16 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 16: Samson at Gaza / Samson and Delilah / The Death of Samson. This is the story of a stupid guy who has magic hair and a penchant for bimbos who do him dirty. It's also yet another example of how murdery god is.

24:12
April 23, 2022
Judges Chapter 15 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 15: Samson and the Woman of Timnath (cont.) / Samson Defeats the Philistines at Lehi. This guy lights foxes on fire and messes around with the jawbone of a donkey after hiding in a cave. He's a legit psycho but for some unfathomable reason God is on his team? What even is this story.
28:39
April 22, 2022
Judges Chapter 14 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 14: Samson and the Woman of Timnath. This guy wants to bang a hot chick so he makes up this stupid story about killing a lion which he then turns into a stupid riddle. Then he calls his stupid fiance a heifer and turns into a stupid mass murderer before running home to his stupid mommy and daddy. There's also something about honey but it's so stupid I can't even.
24:00
April 21, 2022
Judges Chapter 13 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 13: The Birth of Samson. Manoah's wife can't conceive, but then suddenly she can because magic, and I'm absolutely sure there was no cheating or hanky-panky involved. Hooray for miracle babies!

Judges Chapter 12 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 12: Jephthah Delivers Israel from the Ammonites (cont.) / Ibzan, Elon, and Abdon Judge Israel. East Side Gang gets a bum rap, as do people with a speech impediment. Also, men from this time period were VERY busy, if you know what I mean.
23:49
April 19, 2022
Judges Chapter 11 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 11: Jephthah Delivers Israel from the Ammonites (cont.). A new god enters the chat, and human sacrifice occurs like it ain't no thang. Even worse, the sacrifice in question dies a virgin. Given the time period, she probably wasn't missing much tbh.
19:19
April 18, 2022
Rebroadcast: Easter Bonus Episode
Rebroadcast: Husband and Wife learn a thing or three about this weird, dateless holiday that originated from early goddesses of dawn and spring. It falls on the first Sunday AFTER the first full moon AFTER the Spring Equinox, because obviously. Eggs are caves, bunnies are virgins, and lilies grow in sweat. Seems legit.

24:33
April 16, 2022
Judges Chapter 10 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 10: Tola and Jair Judge Israel / Jephthah Delivers Israel from the Ammonites. The Israelites were so heckin wishy-washy, but that's okay because so was God! We ponder how this dang book could've lasted thru the ages.
23:05
April 15, 2022
Judges Chapter 9 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 9: The Reign of Abimelech. Gideon's bastard is evil and dastardly, but he is eventually murdered most masterfully by a mf #GirlBoss. "Now where is that big mouth of yours?" Aw snap!
38:25
April 14, 2022
Judges Chapter 8 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 8: Gideon Captures the Kings of Midian. Gideon is supposed to be God's guy, but when people decline to feed him and his army, he literally KILLS them. Which in retrospect, actually sounds just like something God would do. Ugh, what dicks.
20:53
April 13, 2022
Judges Chapter 7 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 7: Gideon Men Defeat the Midianites. Wife sounds like garbage in this episode as she is suffering from a horrible stomach bug, but somehow we powered thru. Once again God proves to be prideful and petty.
16:10
April 12, 2022
Judges Chapter 6 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 6: The Call of Gideon. We are introduced to the Spirit of the Lord who seems to be a different entity from the Angel of the Lord who is definitely NOT the Lord himself except kinds of he is so maybe one supreme being was talking to itself in three separate voices? And Gideon is a dweeb.
29:41
April 11, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: Judges Chapters 1 - 5 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Judges 1 - 5 and our Weekly Q&A. Also... Apologies for our shitty sound quality this week. We should be good going forward. 🙂
02:13:13
April 10, 2022
Judges Chapters 1 - 5 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about where tf the Book of Judges picks up, and we learn that (shockingly) the Israelites wanted personal wealth and physical pleasure, even at the cost of sacrificing children. We also learn that "bone spurs" are the new "cutting off thumbs" of draft dodging. And finally, there is no Angel, only Zuul.
22:24
April 09, 2022
Judges Chapter 5 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 5: The Song of Deborah and Barak. And by "song" we do mean "there will be singing" so hold on to your butts. We learn that Jael (Wife's patronus) is held in highest esteem among tent-dwelling women. But not the ones who live in houses, obvs. 
22:22
April 08, 2022
Judges Chapter 4 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 4: Deborah and Barak Defeat Sisera. Jael is my patronus and I need to know everything about her because she is a legit badass. Anyway, the Israelites are back on top again I guess. Whatever.
23:10
April 07, 2022
Judges Chapter 3 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 3: The Nations Left to Test Israel / Othniel Delivers Israel from Cushan-rishathaim / Ehud Delivers Israel from Moab/ Shamgar Delivers Israel from the Philistines. The Israelites are like, "Goodbye-Hello, Goodbye-Hello" towards God, who is like, "I love you; I hate you; I bless you; I curse you!" towards the Israelites. They all need some couples therapy. And we still aren't sure about what makes those guys judges.
23:29
April 06, 2022
Judges Chapter 2 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 2: The Angel of the Lord at Bokim / The Death of Joshua / Israel's Apostasy and the Ministry of the Judges. God is super fickle and he fluctuates between anger and sympathy for the people he both neglects and abuses. We want to know if the judges are human, or magical flying angels, or God-finger-puppets.
26:43
April 05, 2022
Judges Chapter 1 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 1: Judah and Simeon Capture Adoni-bezek / Judah Conquers Jerusalem and Hebron / Othniel Conquers Debir and Receives Achsah / The Extent of the Conquests of Judah and Benjamin / Joseph Conquers Bethel / The Extent of the Conquests of Manasseh and Ephraim / The Extent of the Conquests of the Other Tribes. Holy shit, that's a lot of subtitles for one chapter, but Judges does start off with a bang! Some clown loses his toes and thumbs; a daughter is exchanged for help; and the Israelites completely fail to get rid of the Canaanites.
26:22
April 04, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: Joshua Chapters 21 - 24 with Q&A and Joshua Wrap-up
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Joshua Chapters 21 - 24 our Weekly Q&A and the wrap-up for Joshua.
02:04:16
April 03, 2022
Joshua Wrap-up Bonus Episode
Husband and Wife review the Book of Joshua as the first of the Deuteronomistic History. We talk about Joshua the character and learn that he is pretty skeptical of the future of the Israelites. We kick a quiz's ass in spite of several wrong answers.
27:56
April 02, 2022
Joshua Chapters 21 - 24 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about the Levites couch-surfing; why Phinehas was the right guy to question East Side Gang; and how the Canaanites are still here today.
17:37
April 01, 2022
Joshua Chapter 24 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 24: Joshua's Farewell Address / The Death of Joshua / Joseph's Bones Buried at Schechem / The Death of Eleazar. This is the final chapter of Joshua! One foot out the door he was like, "Y'all be good now, hear?" And then he made a stone promise to behave too. There are also bones but NBD.
25:53
March 31, 2022
Joshua Chapter 23 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 23: Joshua's Charge to the People. Uh-oh, looks like J-Dawg gettin' old and 'bout to die. But on his way out the door he's like, "So be good, for goodness sake!"
17:41
March 30, 2022
Joshua Chapter 22 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 22: The Altar by the Jordan. There's a moment of confusion when we are stunned to realize that the West Side Gang are about to war on the East Side Gang, all because of a memorial literally erected to remind both sides to get along. Wife compares the East Side Gang to Chris Rock in that "WTF just happened" way.
28:28
March 29, 2022
Joshua Chapter 21 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 21: The Cities of the Levites / Israel Possesses the Land. There's a lot of mathing in this one. Also, there's this whole "Promises made - Promises kept" proclamation that doesn't sit right with us.
20:04
March 28, 2022
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: Joshua Chapters 16 - 20 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Joshua Chapters 16 - 20 and our Weekly Q&A.
02:13:17
March 27, 2022
Joshua Chapters 16 - 20 Q&A
Husband and Wife answer questions about why the Israelites failed to drive out all the Canaanites; why Joshua was the last to receive an allotment of land; and the position of the cities of refuge. Wife concedes a point to Husband and he dies of shock.
17:39
March 26, 2022
Joshua Chapter 20 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 20: The Cities of Refuge Appointed. If you accidentally kill someone it's totally cool because now you're a badass slayer and anyway if you run fast enough you can live free from recrimination in one of those slayer camps. Murder is cool, but slaying someone is the better way to go.
15:13
March 25, 2022
Joshua Chapter 19 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 19: The Territory Allotted to the Other Tribes (cont). Benjamin got his own chapter but all the other tribes got stuffed into one. And it turns out that Dan isn't as chill as we thought, which is v. disappointing.
24:56
March 24, 2022
Joshua Chapter 18 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 18: The Territory Allotted to the Other Tribes. This chapter is so stinkin' mappy, and it's mostly just Benjamin's land. On the bright side, it's anti-gerrymandering, which is kinda cool.
21:58
March 23, 2022
Joshua Chapter 17 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 17: The Territory Allotted to Ephraim and Manasseh (cont). We rant a bit about how {*yells into mic*} WE ARE NOT SCHOLARS OR ACADEMICS before going on to learn that the Canaanites are still very present and many of them are giants. No worries; our boy Joshua enslaves them. Good times!
18:49

March 21, 2022
Joshua Chapter 16 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 16: The Territory Allotted to Ephraim and Manasseh. More Canaanites get to survive (as slaves) so yay! I tried really hard to think of something else to say, but this chapter was literally only two paragraphs so you get what you get and you don't get upset.
10:03

Bible Study for Atheists Weekly: Joshua Chapters 11 - 15 with Q&A
Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Joshua Chapters 11 - 15 and our Weekly Q&A.
01:44:05
March 20, 2022
Joshua Chapters 11 - 15 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about Arba and Bohan. We talk about giants, angels, stones, altars, and illegitimate children. Then we geek out over the idea that eventually we plan to read the Dead Sea Scrolls.
24:24
March 19, 2022
Joshua Chapter 15 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 15: The Territory Allotted to Judah / Caleb Conquers Hebron and Debir / The Cities of Judah. There were so many locations name-dropped in this chapter that we got a little loopy. Wife is not sorry. TOOTHPICK.
22:03
March 18, 2022
Joshua Chapter 14 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 14: Canaan Divided by Lot / Hebron Given to Caleb. So you know how just then it says the land was divided by "lot"? It's a lie. Some of that shit was predetermined by Moses and there would have been some extremely angry 80yo's if they'd actually done it by lot. So anyway, THAT happened.
11:09
March 17, 2022
Joshua Chapter 13 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 13: The Land Yet to Be Possessed / The Inheritances Given by Moses. If the last chapter was a Congress of Kings, this chapter is a Menagerie of Maps, or an Aggregation of Atlases, or a Louse of Lands. Oh, and you thought they were done conquering Canaan? Foolish mortal.
21:34
March 16, 2022
Joshua Chapter 12 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 12: The Kings Defeated by Moses / The Kings Defeated by Joshua. This is a super short chapter that is literally just a rollcall of every king killed thus far. We argued over what you might call a group of kings, as with a flock of geese or a murder of crows: a Congress of Kings? A Flush of Kings? A Court of Kings? A Bag of Kings? Anyway, nothing happens.
13:51
March 15, 2022
Joshua Chapter 11 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 11: The Defeat of Jabin's Alliance / Joshua Takes the Whole Land. We decide to start referring to the "Basket of Deplorables" as the "Vast Horde" because when you're surrounded by antivaxxers that's legit how it feels. Husband wins a bad-joke contest, our kid unexpectedly contributes a throwaway comment, and Wife quotes Humpty Dumpty.
23:11

Bible Study for Atheists Weekly is a collection of last week's episodes by Sacrilegious Discourse with Husband and Wife. This week's collection includes Joshua Chapters 6 - 10 and our Weekly Q&A.
02:00:21
March 13, 2022
Joshua Chapters 6 - 10 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about that weirdo with a sword who shows up right before Joshua kicks some Canaan ass, as well as questions about why Canaan ass even needs kicking in the first place.
13:45
March 12, 2022
Joshua Chapter 10 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 10: The Defeat of the Amorites. These guys were giants tho, weren't they? No mention of that now, so we really aren't sure. But wow, God stops the sun, which is completely unnecessary since he also sends down hail to kill everyone. Because, don't forget, slaughter is so much fun!
28:60
March 11, 2022
Joshua Chapter 9 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 9: The Deceit of the Gibeonites. We learn that it's good to lie, because "I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay" is more than just a silly song when your life is in the line.
15:16
March 10, 2022
Joshua Chapter 8 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 8: The Capture and Destruction of Ai / The Law Recorded at Mount Ebal. Wife does a math badly, but to be fair, the entire premise was poorly articulated, so I think we can all agree that ultimately God is to blame for this malarkey. Footnote: Another visit to Bless and Curse Mountains ensues, but let's be real: Who even cares?
30:44
March 09, 2022
Joshua Chapter 7 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 7: The Sin of Achan. We learn (again) that God is a greedy, vindictive, murdery, jerk-face. And also that Joshua has perpetuated Moses' grift beyond all reckoning. These people are nasty, and this book is bad.
23:24
March 08, 2022
Joshua Chapter 6 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 6: The Fall of Jericho. There really wasn't even a battle because God just made the walls fall down himself, so I'm not sure what all the fuss over this town was about. But hey they followed thru on saving that prostitute so, Yay?
20:47
March 07, 2022

01:16:18
March 06, 2022
Joshua Chapters 1 - 5 Q&A Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover questions about Joshua and his daddy Nun. They get compared to Moses and Jesus, and we learn belatedly that Joshua was with Moses all over Mount Sinai even tho NO he tf was not.
16:16
March 05, 2022
Joshua Chapter 5 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 5: The Circumcision and Passover at Gilgal / Joshua and the Man with a Drawn Sword. So after crossing the Jordan, the Israelites randomly decide that NOW is the time to chop off their dicks ("just the tip"). Then some asshole just declared himself commander of the Lord's army and Joshua is like, "Of course you are; that totally makes perfect sense!" This book is so weird and silly
13:23
March 04, 2022
Joshua Chapter 4 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua chapter 4: The Twelve Stones Taken from the Jordan. They crossed the river. They picked up rocks. They stacked those rocks so good. And that day Joshua was named Best. Leader. Ever. Besides. Moses. That's literally all that happened and, believe me, I spiced it up here.
13:46
March 03, 2022
Joshua Chapter 3 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua Chapter 3: Israel Passes over the Jordan. And, like, that is literally all that happened. Those guys picked up their shit and crossed river. The end. Anticlimactic af.
15:44
March 02, 2022
Joshua Chapter 2 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua Chapter 2: The Spies Sent to Jericho. The title of this section pissed off Husband before we even started reading, because sending in spies is LITERALLY what got the Israelites in trouble the LAST time they approached the Promised Land. The spies aren't very scouty, tho, as they are busy with a prostitute who squeezes vows of protection from her sneaky lovers.
15:52
March 01, 2022
Joshua Chapter 1 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Joshua Chapter 1: Preparations for the Conquest of Canaan. We wonder if the Canaanites noticed the Israelite army that's been camped out on their border for what seems like several months. Yeah, that's right, they still haven't entered the Promised Land. It's starting to feel like maybe they're stalling.
14:13

Deuteronomistic History - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife introduce the next section of the Old Testament following the Pentateuch: the Deuteronomistic History, which includes Joshua, Judges, 1Samuel, 2Samuel, 1 King, and 2 King. The Book of Ruth is in there somewhere but gets no mention, so not sure what THAT'S about! We end the episode on a hill of foreskins, as you do.
18:41
February 25, 2022
Pentateuch Wrap-up Bonus Episode (part 2)
Husband and Wife attempt to cover a brief summary of the Pentateuch, but it ran long, so here is Part 2: Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. And thus we have completed our reading of the first five books of the Bible! W00t!
14:12
February 24, 2022
Pentateuch Wrap-up Bonus Episode (Part 1)

Deuteronomy Chapters 30 - 34 Q&A - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover questions about the Thummim and Urim, which sadly have nothing to do with either thumbs or urine. We get furthering confirmation that those silly Bible goobers believed in magic. You know, because a belief in gods wasn't ridiculous enough.
11:06
February 19, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 34 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 34: The Death of Moses. And with that the baton is passed to Joshua, Deuteronomy is done, the Pentateuch is history, and we are ready to move into... more Bible. But not before a week of bonus eps! w00t!
18:35
February 18, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 33 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 33: Moses Blesses the Tribes of Israel. Some blessings are better than others, a few blessings are subpar, and Dan's blessing is missing altogether. The best blessing was Reuben's: basically, don't die. Coolio.
16:44
February 17, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 32 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 32: The Song of Moses / Moses Permitted to See the Land of Canaan. It's our musical debut! Every good show has one! Sing along, you guys! It's a regular hootenanny! Also Moses gonna die. Ope.
15:01
February 16, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 31 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 31: Joshua Commissioned as Moses' Successor / The Law to Be Placed in the Ark / The Song of Moses. God reveals that like two seconds after Moses dies, the dumbos will start worshipping other gods and breaking the covenant. Poor Moses. My dude can't even die in peace.
24:08
February 15, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 30 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 30: The Conditions for Restoration and Blessing. God commands us to love him, which seems like a flawed plan. But if you disobey, you'll have to eat a baby sandwich on suffer bread. So we're gonna choose the blessings, right? I mean, I guess so.
14:19

February 13, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapters 25 - 29 Q&A

14:43
February 12, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 29 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 29: The Lord's Covenant with Israel in Moab. It's just more of the same "I'll boil you alive" threats if the people disobey. Wife channels her inner Mickey Mouse, and does a quick detour into her favorite sci-fi shows. Husband keeps things on track but cuts us off without letting us say goodbye. GOODBYE!
18:48
February 11, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 28 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 28: The Blessings of Obedience / The Consequences of Disobedience. Holy moly, this god is on a serious tear! He threatens to make you eat your kids and get boils everywhere and be naked and have mildew and robberies and whatnot and what-have-you, promises he will turn this van around and drive y'all back to Egypt if you don't behave, and then is like, "But you still love me tho, right?" No, my dude. Just no.
32:38
February 10, 2022
Deuteronomy Chapter 27 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 27: The Law to Be Recorded on Mount Ebal / The Curses at Mount Ebal. After making a zen garden by balancing stacked rocks, these fools shout curses that involve way too many rules about sex. The guys were so dang horny back then! And all the people reply, Amen!
16:49

Deuteronomy Chapter 26 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 26: The Firstfruits and the Tithe. We learn that Israelites shopped at Michaels because OMG they had tons of baskets! Tithing included heavily scripted soliloquies that basically amounted to kthnxbai.

Deuteronomy Chapter 25 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 25: Laws of Human Relations (still cont.) / The Command to Blot Out Amalek. It seems counter-productive to write down the name of a people you actively want to forget, but okay, you do you, weirdos! And for the record, I'm never going to marry my brother-in-law, periodt.

Deuteronomy Chapter 24 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 24: Laws of Human Relations (cont.). The rich are encouraged not to be selfish fucks, and Wife goes off about Dave Ramsey. We ponder that age-old question, How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie pop? Now go beat your trees!

Deuteronomy Chapter 23
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 23: Those Excluded from the Congregation / Laws of Sanitation / Laws of Human Relations. This chapter starts right off with penises and the lack thereof; it doesn't get better from there. It's all prostitutes and wet dreams and buffets and a bunch of grapes and crushed nuts. Oh and also a sickle.

Deuteronomy Chapter 22 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 22: Various Laws (cont.) / Laws Concerning Chastity. This entire chapter is way too concerned with vaginas. Lots of people get stoned but not in the good way. This shit's bananas. We were pretty much rendered speechless which isn't good in an audio-only medium.

Deuteronomy Chapter 21 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 21: Settlement for an Unknown Murderer's Crime / Various Laws. These folks love stoning people to death -- including their own kids! And they are more concerned about their town not getting blamed for murder than they are about actually solving the murder. Honestly, these Israelites were pretty garbage.

Deuteronomy Chapter 20 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 20: The Laws Concerning War. What's it good for? Absolutely nothin'. Except for trees. But only the fruit ones. The non-fruit-bearing trees are open season. Also, we are reminded to never NOT be afraid as it means you get to go home. Also also, don't live in town because there's a chance that being merely deplorable-adjacent saves you from outright murder.

Deuteronomy Chapters 15 - 19 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about Curse Mountain and Bless Mountain. We learn how they decided which mountain was which (they held a beauty contest) and who got to stand on the good one (they held a popularity contest).

Deuteronomy Chapter 19 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 19: The Cities of Refuge / The Law Concerning Witnesses. We come up with a fantastic concept for a reality tv show wherein Christian contestants are judged by the rules actually set forth in the Bible -- which means you can't move your yard markers, Karen! And Steve, you need to get a better grip on your axe so the head stops flying off! We also learn that we aren't supposed to feel pity for the convicted, which, I dunno, seems a bit cruel and anti-Christian, but hey! Judges gonna judge.

Deuteronomy Chapter 18 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 18: The Portions of the Levites / Warning Against Heathen Practices / God Promises a Prophet Like Moses. Wife is sad about the lack of magic in her life and vows to get her palms read. Husband half-heartedly vows to trust Wife's premonitions. We recap our adventure with skydiving zombies.

Deuteronomy Chapter 17 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 17: The Administration of Justice (cont.) / Instructions Concerning a King. Stonings continue but only after cyber stalking. We question what constitutes "too many" in deciding how many wives a king gets to have. Then we wax nostalgic about the idea of having a leader who has actually read the rules. Finally, we bristle at the Bible's accusation of arrogance in anyone who dares question conviction. Thank you for stopping by Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists!

Deuteronomy Chapter 16 - Bible Study for Atheists
Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 16: The Three Appointed Feasts / The Administration of Justice. We decide we'd rather have chicken than lamb on a Suffer Bread sammich. Wife teaches Husband "The Song That Never Ends" and we wonder whether Moses was allowing for basement Ashera poles. Thank you for stopping by Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists!

Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 15: The Year of Release / Lending to the Poor / The Treatment of Servants / The Consecration of Firstlings. Wife is disappointed to learn that "release" has nothing to do with orgasms, and she gets worked up over the sad state of college and medical debt in this country.

Deuteronomy Chapters 10 - 14 Q&A
Husband and Wife cover questions about how many Israelites were in Egypt, versus how many left. Turns out the Israelites weren't all that special insofar as being the pharaoh's slaves. Moreover, they weren't even Israelites at that point. We argue about cultural collective memory versus b&w historical accuracy, and compare Moses to George Washington. It's all very messy.

Husband and Wife cover Deuteronomy chapter 14: Warning Against Idolatry (cont. still) / Clean and Unclean Food / The Law of the Tithe (as opposed to The Eye of the Tiger).
