The Bible Bash Podcast

Jael and her Tent Peg — Judges 4

August 30, 2019

Liam Hooper, a Trans Bible scholar, talks about Jael in Judges chapter 4, her famous tent peg, & the naughty unconventional way she uses it. Fierce, subversive, and gender non-conforming, Jael stands as a bold figure in the Bible.

Peterson Toscano joins in the discussion then shares an "other" text. He reads a poem by Sapho (ca. 610-580 B.C.E.) from Andrew Harvey's The Essential Gay Mystics. 

In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Peterson, cisgender gay Bible scholar and co-host, trans Bible scholar, Liam Michael Hooper 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.
