You know how you sometimes read the Bible and discover something that you didn’t expect was there? I’m not talking about anything spiritually meaningful in this case. I’m talking about finding something weirder than you expected.
Thus I’m including a link to Cracked magazine’s list of nine passages that qualify for what I mentioned above.
I’m not sure if it reflects well or badly on me that I was already familiar with all but one. In fact, I can think of at least one passage that I’m surprised they skipped.
For what it’s worth, here’s my commentary on Ezekiel 23:19-20 (which they didn’t skip).
Worth mentioning? The reason these passages are regarded to be odd is the prevalence of sex and violence. The Bible has more of that than you might think.
