Season 14, Episode 2: Jael

This week we deep-dive our most requested biblical character, the tent-maker turned tent-murderer Jael. Join Knox, Jamie, and Erin as they explain why the first six books of the Bible are exactly like the Twilight Saga in this story featuring horse panic attacks, TWO named women, and all the drama. If you’re the type of listener who is into the Bible but also likes Quentin Tarantino and some violence, this is the perfect episode for you!
