The Bible is a crazy collection of writings. And with the vast majority of it being narrative in style, what we’re left with are a lot of bizarre Bible stories.
Some Bible stories are strange to us because we don’t understand the historical or cultural context. For some, it’s because they are written either so cryptically or matter-of-factly that it leaves our head spinning with follow up questions that are simply left unanswered. Still other times, a story is both clear and descriptive, but it’s just a zany adventure in the life of whoever is advancing God’s story in that particular section of text.
So on this episode, we thought we’d dive into five more crazy Bible stories from the and what they mean.
