The Old Testament in Five Minutes

Superb.  This has almost two million views on YouTube.  We need Catholic Apostolates that could do internet videos with this type of production values and this type of faith.  Too many Catholic videos on the internet are shockingly bad.  Good intentions do not make up for appallingly bad execution.

  1. Good generally but Samuel fired Saul because “the word of the Lord” that Saul didn’t obey ( omitted here) was the herem massacre of the Amalekites and all their animals. Saul saved the choice animals and the king, Agag…who Samuel then slew because he had an undeveloped awareness of the dignity of Agag per the CDF office and Pope Francis. Yes Saul was fired by God from the kingship for not carrying out a death penalty on Agag….under Francis, he’d still be king…were it not for the thousands of other executions within the herem massacre.

  2. “Saul saved the choice animals and the king, Agag…who Samuel then slew because he had an undeveloped awareness of the dignity of Agag per the CDF office and Pope Francis.”
    If Agag had slain the prophet Samuel, that too, would be just lovely for Pope Francis.
    Maybe if the prophet Samuel had been an abortionist, sodomite, then Pope Francis would object to the death penalty for the prophet, Samuel.
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…” unless you are LGBT or Planned Parenthood, then you are special, really special.

  3. Fr Andrew and CAM, covenant is mentioned at about the 4:50 mark just after Daniel emerges from the lions den unscathed. The prophet Jeremiah states, “I will make a new covenant with my people Israel…..”.

  4. Very nice summary, but unfortunately rendered awkward to the ear (and troubling to orthodox sensibilities) by the slavish avoidance of masculine pronouns with reference to God.
