The Very Model of a Biblical Philologist

You will only enjoy this if you like Gilbert and Sullivan, or have some passing interest in Biblical language study, or in Biblical archaeology, or Biblical studies in general, or anything to do with Ancient Near Eastern studies, or think it is sometimes good to laugh at liberal theology, or have a little interest in the writings of early Christians, or in ancient manuscripts.

You don’t have to understand all that or even most of it to appreciate what’s been done here.  But if you have absolutely no interest in (or knowledge of) ANY of those things, and don’t like Gilbert and Sullivan, and don’t have a sense of humour, save yourself the three enjoyable minutes of the following video.  (HT: Glenn Chatfield, who posted this in one of his “Some Random Good Stuff” posts — and believe me, this is random!)

    Bravo to the very intrepid and witty Joshua Tyra! And thank you, sir, for sharing this. Made my Saturday afternoon!
    “….and prove the Philistines were almost certainly Canadian!”
    Ha! 😀

  2. I can’t even remember the site I found this on back in December, but I thought it was just a “gas.” So it got saved until I had enough links for good stuff to add it. Some people are so very clever — I’d never be able to do such things!

  3. If you look at that guy’s youtube channel, he’s also created alphabet songs for both Hebrew and Arabic.
