Tie Me Up Delilah — Judges 16

Liam Michael Hooper, a Trans Bible scholar spends a lot of time  in the Hebrew Bible. This inspired co-host Peterson Toscano to explore the story of Samson and Delilah in the book of Judges, chapter 16. Looking at the story with eyes of a playwright and an actor, Peterson points out the intense intimacy and profound love between the Israelite man and the Philistine woman. In a surveillance state, their relationship grows deep through role play and bondage.  

Liam then shares “The Other Text,” his poem To Tell You Everything which will appear in the upcoming book Transforming Proclamation published by Otherwise Engaged

In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Liam, a trans queerish man, and co-host, cis gay Bible scholar, Peterson Toscano, 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.
