Too Long; Didn’t Read is an irreverant look at a reverant book… it’s a podcast about the The Bible. This season, we’re uncovering the stories you didn’t learn in preschool. These aren’t cute. There aren’t coloring pages for them. They’re violent; weird; scandalous. And they’re part of the Bible for a reason. Wonder why? So do we.
The Revelation Special
Revelation might be the most misunderstood—and for that reason, also the most ignored—book in the entire Bible. But as weird as it feels, wrestling with Revelation can be deeply impactful. Eric and Mae get together for a special one-off bonus episode to help demystify the end of the Bible... and the world.
Timey Wimey Christmas
The story of Christmas didn't start in Bethlehem. The season 2 finale of Too Long; Didn't Read takes you on a mind-bending trip way... way... way back.
Read the story for yourself in John 1.
Woke Joe and the Murder King
Die Hard is a kid's movie compared to this.
Read the story for yourself in Matthew 2:13-18
We Three Astrologers?
They weren't kings. There weren't three of them. And they definitely didn't visit an infant in a manger. Time for the magi to take the spotlight.
Read their story for yourself in Matthew 2:1-12
A (Family) Tree and a Manger
It's time for Joseph's side of the story.
Read it for yourself in Matthew 1:1-24
Strange Lights in the Sky
Nothing shakes up a quiet night of shepherding like being interrupted by an angel choir. The birth of Jesus is announced in an unlikely fashion to an unlikely audience.
Read about the story yourself in Luke 2:8-20.
Great double click
On stories I’d normally just glaze over
Context is king
Love it! Besides offering some cool, strange, and less touched on stories, the context this podcast offers is so helpful. I’m in the process of a year long Bible reading plan and listening has definitely helped deepen my understanding of stories I’ve already read and the lessons they have to offer.
I look very forward to these interesting and exciting stories in the Bible. Makes my day!
