Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists

Hello from Malaysia!

Hello from Malaysia! I am very grateful that I've found your podcast. I was a Christian for the first 20+ years of my life, and I have since been an atheist for the past 6 years. I have decided to re-read the bible without the "god glasses" couple years back. I started reading around the same time you guys started this podcast and boy oh boy is it fascinating to have someone else think "what the fuck is this shit" alongside me!

It has been very eye-opening to hear your perspective because I understand all the nuances and supposed "hidden messages" in the bible and they still sometimes cloud the things I'm reading. For example, when David was first "anointed as king" by Samuel, you guys were confused to why there are two kings in Israel. What we were told is that he was chosen to be the next king but not a king yet. So I was confused until that Q&A episode you guys found out about how the kingdom was still split up at that time, and they probably were ruling different parts at the same time.

I've been listening to the podcast since the first episode and finally have the means to support you guys. Thank you from the other side of the globe~ #barleyparty
