So what do I do when I’m not drawing Martian Cat-Dudes and plucky Girl Reporters in Skimpy Outfits? Would you believe I write about obscure stories from the Bible?
I’ve always had a fondness for the weird, little-known stories in the Bible; the ones that get overlooked and the ones you don’t usually hear in Sunday School. I suppose it’s the confluence of being a Pastor’s Kid, liking storytelling, and liking just plain weird stuff. But a couple months ago, I started a blog which I titled, “The Ones You Didn’t Hear in Sunday School” for stories like these.
Everybody’s heard of the story of David and Goliath, or Jonah and the Whale, or the Parable of the Good Samaritan; but how many of us remember the story of Abigail and her Really Stupid Husband, or the Daughters of Zelophehad, or the Parable of the Sleazy Embezzler?
Some of these stories are overlookes because they’re less flashy than the famous ones, or because they don’t have simple moral lessons, or because they have sex in them, or sometimes because they’re just plain weird. But for better or worse, they are part of our Western religious heritage.
Stop by and take a look and see what weirdness you can find.
