The Bible in Minute Video Clip

One of my former students in Maynooth posted this video by Barat and Bereta on my Facebook page. Haven't seen it in a while and it made me laugh, then made me weep a little when he said he was going to show it to his students :) It has over 2.3 million hits on YouTube with several "copy cats" and brings back fond memories of watching the Reduced Shakespeare Company perform The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) in London, so much so I've ordered the CD. (See a review of the show here) My Wisdom Lit students also received the link for this as a "goodbye and thank you" present for the last 12 weeks!
Make up your own minds and enjoy!

And the lyrics!

Bible In A Minute

Earth made, Adam Eve

Cain kills Abel, has to leave

Boring genealogy

Great flood, olive leaf

Tower Babel, Abraham

Sodom and Gomorrah, and

Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses

Ten commands, promised land

Judges, David, Solomon

Sent away to Babylon

Job, then a bunch of psalms

Proverbs and the Song of Songs

Major prophets, lion’s den

Minor prophets, Bethlehem

Gold and myrrh and frankincense

Satan and Samaritan

Choose disciples, other cheek

Walk on water, thousands eat

Lazarus, fig tree

Last supper, Gethsemane

Blood money, third denial

Pontius Pilate, public trial

Forty lashes, to the tree

Why have you forsaken me?

Third day, empty tomb

Reappears, five wounds

Acts of the Apostles next

Epistles and Apocalypse
