This week on The Human Bible we learn some more about Form Criticism and how the Bible tends to repeat itself over, and over, and over. We take an in-depth and critical look at what the Bible actually has to say about homosexuality—and it might surprise you. In this week's "Apologetics is Never Having to Say You're Sorry" we examine yet another argument by C.S Lewis. This time it involves stacks of books, cucumbers, and one big false analogy. Finally, we look into what the Bible says about the afterlife—a lot of very different (and conflicting) things, it turns out.
Special thanks to Tom and Irvi for the questions answered in this week's episode.

In today's episode, we learn about Biblical Form Criticism—what does scripture have in common with knock-knock jokes and superheroes anyway? We answer a question from the Human Bible Hotline about the Epic of Gilgamesh and whether or not the Bible took some serious notes from it.
We also take a look at yet another failed prophecy in Ezekiel, wonder if Yahweh was a volcano god, and read some verses in the Bible that many people would probably like to pretend aren't there.
