Have you heard the story of Jesus’ hissy fit in the temple, turning over tables and ranting about the house of God being a house of prayer for all the peoples? Have you ever wondered what that apparent temper tantrum was all about? In this episode, Don offers his thoughts about the tale as we find in the Gospel of Mark. In his discussion, Don poses the possibility that Jesus was saying the quiet part out loud – really loud, in fact. Give a listen as Don and Liam take a closer look at the story.
For the Other Text, Liam reads Mary Oliver’s Morning Poem from Mary Oliver’s Dream Work collection, (1986, The Atlantic Monthly Press.)

Trans-Forming proclamation: A Transgender Theology of Daring Existence is new wine in a new wine skin. It is Inventive, artful, and liberating. Available on Amazon and published by Otherwise Engaged.
In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Liam Michael Hooper, a white trans Bible scholar and Don Durham, a white, cis, heterosexual farmer, minister, and podcaster take turns presenting the text. Then, they discuss. In addition, they present another text in each episode; a non-Biblical text of note – religious or secular – that may, or may not, correspond to the Bible text.
Our theme song is Playbill by The Jellyrox. It is available on iTunes, Spotify, or through Rock Candy Recordings. The show is edited by Peterson Toscano.
