Some, although not all, versions of the Bible contain the books of Maccabees. I’ve been using the New International Version of the Bible in my discussion and these books are not included, but there is a verse describing zombies, so I can’t help but include it for this week’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday. Maybe I should rename this “Crazy Bible Zombie Verse Tuesday”???
“So that worms swarmed out of the body of this man, and whilst he lived in sorrow and pain, his flesh fell off, and the filthiness of his smell was noisome to the army.” – 2 Maccabees 9:9
Yikes! Worms coming out of the body, still alive, flesh falling off, and smelly like filth. Yep, that’s a zombie in the Bible!
