Mummy Dust and Skeleton Bones
Hey Theophiloi, good news/bad news. About eight minutes into the recording, Chris's Good Microphone stopped working and so we did an hour of the show with Chris sounding like he was trapped in a hole. The good news is that we have a very good text this week: the Book of Ruth, Bible's greatest saga of wheat farming and sapphic subtext! Plus: We angle hard for that Fig Newton sponsorship. What's good, Nabisco?
Topics of discussion: A thorough examination of the biblical themes in Neon Genesis Evangelion, the NBC drama thriller Blindspot, the Seven Species, Shavuot: A Chill Hang, Biblical figures that sound like Digimon, Orpah, PoemHub, gleaning the cube, vinegar sauce, "feet" again.
Hymnal: "Closer" by Tegan and Sara
Offertory: Each person should do as he has decided in his heart, so if you enjoy the show, head to ko-fi.com/apocrypals, for the Apocrypals love a cheerful giver.
