2.39: Acts

In this long-time-in-coming new episode, we talk about Luke: Part II, also known as Acts, or sometimes, the Acts of the Apostles. Crazy stuff abounds, people get healed by shadows, thousands of people convert after a single sermon, tongues are spoken in, and people’s heads catch on fire or something. It’s a little hard to swallow.

  1. The whole “flaming tongues appear over their heads” is swiped from Virgil’s Aeneid. It happens to Aeneas son.

  2. But then, Virgil was also a first-rate historian.

  3. Later in Acts there is a scene stolen straight from Euripides’ Bacchae. Luke is a plagiarizin’ bastard!

  4. I wonder if we can sue on Virgils’s behalf.

  5. holy crap, a new episode! Weeee! I’m really enjoying these Bible shows. I thought you were going to stop after the gospels, so color me excited 🙂

  6. It’s all very good to mock the Scriptures, but Chuck… were you there?

  7. I echo that, “Woohoo!” at a new Bible study episode!

    Happy Darwin day everybody!

  9. Fuck. Singles’, not singles!

  10. More bible study, please.
    Matt could pitch in by at least covering the book of Obadiah.
