Have you ever wondered, “Who might be bisexual in the Bible?” Drawing on the scholarship of Rabbi Mark Sameth, author of the New York Times essay, Is God Transgender? Liam Hooper digs into the story of Judah, the son of Jacob, and an encounter he had with another man.
Then Peterson Toscano shares the other text. He reads the poem Soot by Ana Blandiana from the anthology In the Shape of a Human Body I am Visiting the Earth.
In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Peterson, cisgender gay Bible scholar and co-host, Liam Michael Hooper, a trans queerish Bible scholar, take turns presenting the text. They then discuss. In addition, each episode they present another text, a non-Biblical text of note–religious or secular–that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
