Religion & Spirituality
Peterson Toscano recounts the epic story of a "day in the life" of Jesus and the disciples as found in Mark chapter 5. There we see a demon possessed man, a herd of pigs, really pissed off towns people, and very frightened disciples. As an actor, Peterson is curious about the backstory of "the man who dwelt amongst the tombs." What brought him to this place in his life? What trauma did he experience that he feels safe among the dead while avoiding family and friends?" This raises questions for Liam about the way queer people, particularly trans people are treated by society and family.
The story continues on the other side of the lake where Jesus and the gang encounters an important man with power and privilege and an outcast person suffering in body and mind. Peterson and Liam talk about the many shifts in the narrative as Jesus refuses to play the game where society defines who deserves attention and who gets overlooked. The woman who has been hemorrhaging for 12 years ultimate finds healing, affirmation, and praise.
Liam follows up with "another text," a prose poem by Mary Oliver. He reads Thirst.
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 an other text, a non-Biblical text of note--religious or secular--that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
