It‘s Multiverse Bible!
The podcast where we reimagine stories from the Bible for fun and hopefully learn something new about the original story in the process.
The purpose here isn’t to rewrite Scripture. I believe that the passages we’re reimaging are perfect just the way they are. My name is Reed Smith and I love the Bible and I don’t think it needs improving. For thousands of years people have come to the Bible for truth and hope and I don’t want that to change. My only goal is that we might unpack the significance that this ancient text has had on human traditions and continues to have to this very day. The way we go about this is by asking, “What if?” What if the stories we read in Scripture were different, even slightly--how would that change our traditions? And in what ways would they remain the same? The following story you’ll hear isn’t based on real events or real people, but it reflects the kind of faith and practices that people might adopt if we had a different Bible.
And maybe by asking “What if,” we grow in appreciation for “What is.”

    Christmas Special 2021: Feliz

    Maybe by asking what if we grow in appreciation for what is! In this special Christmas episode, we imagine a Bible where Joseph went through with divorcing Mary quietly. What would have become of her and the baby Jesus? How would a different Christmas story change the story of a man named Emmanuel? He's here to tell you as he reflects on his own life and the life of his mother.

    Episode 4: What if Jesus Wasn‘t Crucified?

    The cross has been the main symbol of Christianity from the early days of the Church--but what if it wasn't? The cross was a Roman execution device, but what if Jesus didn't die at the hands of the Romans but by the hands of another? What would be the new symbol of Christianity?

    Episode 3: What if Noah Built a Bunker?

    Episode 3: What if Noah Built a Bunker?

    The idea of God preserving his people through the chaotic waters of the flood is an important theme throughout the Bible. But what if instead of using water to destroy wicked humanity God used fire? And instead of building a boat, Noah built a doomsday shelter to survive the blaze. How would that affect all the subsequent Christian tradition that stems from the flood story?
