Today marks the first Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday of 2018 and the topic is…you guessed it, zombies!!! I previously discussed these two verses a couple of years ago as part of a larger selection of verses. Since I’m on a zombie kick, however, I want to come back to these two verses in particular as they do have a zombie reference I’ve yet to touch on.
“Jesus replied, ‘Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.’” – Mark 12:24-25
The dead rise, meaning zombies roam the land. But these zombies can’t marry or have sex! WTF? Where’s the equality? Although more work still needs to be done, great strides have been made in creating a more equal and welcoming society for the LGBTQ community. What about the Jesusland zombies, huh? Where are their rights to marry? To have sex? Obviously zombie marriage and zombie sex is a bit ridiculous to consider, but then again, so are the many, many references to zombies in the Bible. Should a book millions refer to as the literal word of God contain zombie references? You tell me.
