Husband and Wife are two non-believers who have always wanted to read the Bible. Why would we subject ourselves to this you might ask? From our perspective it helps us understand where the Christians around us, here in the Midwest, are coming from when they quote the Bible at us. Husband is basically an Atheist and wife leans Agnostic but mostly Atheist and we’re just having some fun at the Bible’s expense while learning more about what our neighbors claim we’re going to hell over.

    Ezekiel Chapter 10: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Ezekiel Chapter 10: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Dive into a heavenly real estate shuffle with Ezekiel Chapter 10, where God packs up His glory and the cherubim sprout more eyes than a conspiracy theorist's corkboard. In this episode, we're not just spinning our wheels – we're examining the celestial ones attached to some bizarre angelic beings that make your last moving day look like a walk in the park. Forget the ox; this chapter's cherubim have had a face-lift, and we're here to call out the heavenly plastic surgery. So, tune in as we bring the divine down to earth with our signature blend of irreverence and insight. No holy stone goes unturned and no angelic detail escapes our sarcastic scrutiny. It's all the apocalyptic drama without the fire and brimstone hangover.

    Ezekiel Chapter 9: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Ezekiel Chapter 9: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Strap in, sinners and saints, because the divine hit list just got real in Ezekiel Chapter 9. Our atheist podcast duo is back, slicing through the biblical fog with their razor-sharp wit, to dissect a God who seems to have an affinity for celestial tattoos and a severe case of wrath management issues. It's a celestial slaughterhouse out there, and only the marked ones can escape the deity's bloodthirsty penchants. But fear not, our irreverent hosts are here to guide you through the insanity with a snarky recap that'll leave you questioning the moral fiber of the big guy upstairs.
    Join us as we unravel the not-so-mysterious case of divine "justice" where kids, sadly, don't get a free pass, and angels are apparently moonlighting as hitmen. We're peering into the peculiarities of ancient idolatry, angelic assassins with deadly weapons, and the oddly specific office supplies of the heavens. It's an episode where ancient prophecies are held up to modern scrutiny, and spoiler alert: they don't fare well.
    So, if you're ready to have your faith in holy texts tested, or just want a good laugh at the expense of some biblical absurdities, tune in for this episode of "Ezekiel Chapter 9." Trust us; it's not the Sunday School lesson you slept through. It's better.

    Ezekiel Chapter 8: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Ezekiel Chapter 8: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Prepare yourself for an irreverent romp through the ancient temple tantrums of the almighty as we dive headfirst into Ezekiel Chapter 8 on our latest episode of the most blasphemously hilarious podcast this side of the Pearly Gates. Our dynamic atheist duo tears into the Biblical drama with the kind of snark only true skeptics can muster, proving that divine visions can be as laughable as they are fiery.
    Ezekiel's getting the celestial Uber treatment again, folks! This time, his VIP pass to God's own peep show reveals Israel's fondness for idol worship and other gods, much to Yahweh's chagrin. Watch out, because when God's temper flares, it's more than just brimstone and smite – it's a full-on divine comedy of wrath that even Dante would double-take at.
    In this episode, our hosts aren't just poking fun at the holy fireworks; they're questioning the sanity of a deity who throws heavenly hissy fits at the sight of a few misplaced idols. The ancient Judeans are turning to every deity but Yahweh, and honestly, who can blame them? With Babylon knocking on their doors, our podcasters speculate that it might just be time to swipe right on some new divine profiles.
    Between cheeky banter and candid observations, we also discuss the mysterious rituals of yore, like the baffling "branch to the nose" gesture that has our hosts scratching their heads. Was it an ancient bird flip, a religious rave, or just another divine typo lost in translation? Who knows, but it sure does make for an entertaining debate!
    Join us as we dissect every idol curve and prophetic misadventure, where we don't just walk through the valley of the shadow of death – we crack jokes and take names. If you thought the Old Testament was just fire and brimstone, prepare to be enlightened by the only light we need: the spotlight on absurdity. And hey, while you're here, why not support us on Patreon for more sacrilegious banter that's worth every penny? Or don't. After all, in the end, it's just another day in Ezekiel's wacky world of wrath and repentance.

    Ezekiel Chapter 7: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Ezekiel Chapter 7: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Join us for a rollicking ride through the biblical doom-fest that is Ezekiel Chapter 7, where the good book decides that subtlety is for the weak and goes all in with its favorite pastime: smiting with extreme prejudice. If you thought the Old Testament had run out of ways to express its divine rage, think again! This episode of our snark-filled podcast is a deep dive into the repetitious realm of holy fury and mortal screw-ups that would make even a Quentin Tarantino flick look like child's play.
    Our hosts, the ever-skeptical duo armed with irreverence and a hefty dose of critical thinking, tackle the latest chapter of Ezekiel with the same enthusiasm one might reserve for a dental appointment without anesthesia. They wax eloquent on the ever-popular themes of God's anger management issues, the art of divine overkill, and the ancient Israelites' apparent hobby of collecting detestable practices like they're going out of style.
    In this episode, we dissect the ancient prophet's colorful yet monotonous warnings that could give Groundhog Day a run for its money. The biblical writers hit us over the head with a 'the end is nigh' placard so many times, it's a wonder there's any head left to hit. We question the over-the-top depictions of a God who seems to have missed the memo on proportional response, as He dials the destruction up to eleven for offenses that, let's be honest, wouldn't even warrant a misdemeanor in today's courts.
    We don't shy away from controversy either. Just when you thought mixing religion and politics was last season's faux pas, we take a stab at the current affairs like the proposed Billy Graham statue in the Capitol, proving that idolatry is alive and well, and living in Washington D.C. It's a conversation that promises to walk the line between the separation of church and state with the grace of a drunk tightrope walker.
    For those of you who've grown numb to the biblical narrative's penchant for violence and retribution, you're in good company. Our hosts' commentary provides a refreshing alternative to the scripture's somber tone, turning what could be a snooze-fest into a laugh-out-loud critique of the text's more, shall we say, 'creative' moments.
    But wait, there's more! If you enjoy the juxtaposition of ancient prophecies and modern-day musings, then you're in for a treat. We connect the dots between Ezekiel's end-of-days shenanigans and our own contemporary experiences, proving that some things, like bad decision-making and the consequences thereof, are timeless.

    Ezekiel Chapter 6: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Ezekiel Chapter 6: Bible Study BY Atheists

    Strap in, non-believers and scripture enthusiasts alike, because in this eyebrow-raising episode of our blasphemously humorous podcast, we're dissecting the divine hissy fits of the Almighty as depicted in the wild ride that is Ezekiel Chapter 6. Your sacrilegious hosts—known for their devilishly sharp wit—are ready to escort you through the Biblical theme park of God's wrath, complete with idol demolition and a celestial temper tantrum that would make any toddler proud.
    Dive headfirst into a discussion that’s less holy scripture and more divine roast as we unpack the not-so-subtle nuances of ancient Israel's high-altitude idolatry. We'll explore why God's threats of destruction sound less like omnipotent judgment and more like the aftermath of a heavenly kegger gone wrong. It's a no-holds-barred critique, where altars crumble, incense holders shatter, and the Almighty's own PR team would likely advise Him to take a chill pill.
    And just when you thought it couldn't get any more sacrilegious, we'll ponder over the Bible's impact on pop culture, drawing lines from ancient texts to Tarantino's cult classic "Pulp Fiction." You’ll find out why the prophet Ezekiel might just be the original influencer of doom and gloom—and why we're absolutely here for it.
    Don't miss the part where we discuss God’s weirdly specific fetish for smashing incense holders (does He have something against pleasant scents?) and Ezekiel’s bizarre hair prophecy (seriously, who needs a hairdresser when you've got a prophet with a divine blade?). It's an episode that promises to be as educational as it is irreverent, as enlightening as it is entertaining, and as snarky as it is... well, snarky.
    And hey, if you've been teetering on the brink of becoming a patron of our heathen haven, this is your sign from the gods (or lack thereof). We’re on a divine mission to hit our Patreon goals and deliver even more ungodly content your way. Your support could be the difference between podcast purgatory and enlightenment.
    So tune in, turn up the volume, and prepare for a scriptural smackdown that only the bravest of heretics could love. This is Ezekiel Chapter 6: God's Divine Tantrum & Idol Smashing Spree—where sacred landscapes meet sinful acts, and ancient prophecies get a modern makeover. Amen, and pass the popcorn.

Game girl 09 ,

Great podcast!!

Husband and Wife do a great job of making the bible not so boring. I have started reading the Bible several times, but always got too bored and annoyed to keep going. Wife’s reading and narration skills, including funny voices, keep me interested in what’s happening. Husband’s jokes are right on par with my sense of humor so I feel right at home. I also like the fact that they call out the garbage, hypocrisy, and unrealistic nonsense. (I mean a talking donkey, seriously, this book is clearly a fairytale) if Husband and Wife can make it though the whole Bible I will be right there with them until the end!

They make it fun

Wish they were around to help me slog through one of the worst small book groupings ever. So far. Deserves negative reviews.

Atheist bible study ripoff

Honestly,
Listen to atheist bible study. Much better. Not sure which one is ripping off the other one. But this one got annoying real quick. And the adds are insufferable.
