This week on The Human Bible we get up to speed on how the Bible wound up split into chapters and verses. Spoiler: it definitely wasn't written that way.

A called from Minnesota asks about the nature of Hell—does the Bible say it's a fiery, demon-supervised pit of eternal torment, or something closer to just a big pile of garbage? We respond to apologists who suggest that the claims the Bible makes about Jesus must be true because if they weren't, someone totally would have called them on it. We answer a listener question about the word "elohim" as it appears in the Bible—space alien, God speaking of himself in the plural, or something else? To close out the episode we have a look at reincarnation and ask, "Is That in the Bible?!"

Special thanks to Sarah (or Sam?) from Minnesota, and Jean-Michel for the questions answered in today's episode.

Today on The Human Bible, we first talk about the pivotal Biblical character Marcion of Pontus and what he had to do with the formation of the New Testament. We read from and discuss one of the Bible's best erotic poems, the Song of Solomon. (Yes, you read that correctly.) In this week's Prophetic Scorecard, we wonder how Jesus managed to mess up that whole the world ending in his generation thing and what we can learn from it. And, we answer a listener question about the concept of grace and what the Bible really has to say about it.

Special thanks to Steven and Simon for the questions answered in today's episode.

Episode three of The Human Bible is here! Today, we get up to speed on the many names of God—can't he just pick one already? We answer questions on plagues and virgin births, wonder where C.S. Lewis came up with some of that stuff, and read into the verse that claims Paul took over for Jesus when he wasn't quite suffering enough—wait, what? Don't miss it!
