Black Chicks Bible Study


BCBS is two friends in LA reclaiming the Bible one book at a time


  • The Acts of Life

    The Acts of Life

    25/10/2020 Duração: 01h13min

    In the Book of Acts, we meet Christianity's cofounder Paul, discover what Jesus was up to after his resurrection and begin to understand why there are so many different denominations. Plus we question our purpose and imagine utopia. 

  • John Anon

    John Anon

    11/10/2020 Duração: 01h14min

    We're back with the final Gospel! John of unknown origin is here to retell the story of Jesus with some creative liberties. We discuss Christ as God and Man at once, his propensity for disappearing from tight spots and our ongoing search for more deets about the OG prostitute. Plus, we've got some sweet, sweet testimonies following our brief hiatus. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts!

  • Take a Closer Luke

    Take a Closer Luke

    13/09/2020 Duração: 01h18min

    In the third Gospel, Luke begs us to illuminate what hides beneath the surface and take accountability before it's too late to turn back. We debate predestination and the apostles fail to believe women when it comes to the risen Messiah. [email protected]

  • Mark His Words

    Mark His Words

    30/08/2020 Duração: 58min

    The Gospel of Mark trims the fat and brings us a much more human and beleaguered Jesus. Meanwhile, the disciples struggle to believe despite seeing with their own eyes, and we question the necessity of chants and gestures while performing miracles. 

  • Come Through, Matthew

    Come Through, Matthew

    16/08/2020 Duração: 01h29min

    Finally in the New Testament, we hear of Jesus' origins and ministry. Is he the new Messiah or just another prophet? Matthew the tax collector is one tiny piece of the puzzle; we separate the wheat from the chaff and learn more about the difference between Law and Spirit.

  • Good Guy Malachi

    Good Guy Malachi

    02/08/2020 Duração: 44min

    In the FINAL book of the Old Testament, we learn the importance of having an unblemished sacrifice and complete tithe for God, and the disgusting penalty for falling short. We discuss our journey thus far and look forward to the Gospels. / @bcbspodcast [email protected]

  • Zechariah and the Liars

    Zechariah and the Liars

    19/07/2020 Duração: 01h39s

    God speaks through priest/prophet Zechariah about the Israelites' reunion, evangelism and utopian future. Also, a scroll of truth separates the righteous from the deceivers and we wonder if we'll be ready for Yahweh's New Testament makeover.  Submit to or holler back at [email protected]

  • Our Kind of Haggai

    Our Kind of Haggai

    05/07/2020 Duração: 23min

    Haggai is prophet 10 of 12 in the OT! We know little about him other than his love of calendars and the fact that God once asked him to get the priests to debate how consecrated meat works. Meanwhile, we try to stay off demon time and remind you that Black Lives Matter. Submit to or holler back at [email protected]

  • Pre-Messiah Zephaniah

    Pre-Messiah Zephaniah

    21/06/2020 Duração: 34min

    BCBS is back in the fray! In episode 36, we hear more doom and gloom from Yahweh, this time via Minor Prophet 9 Zephaniah. We discuss God's coming vengeance for the oppressed, speaking in tongues, our current culture wars and our need for fast change and fewer Karens. Happy Sabbath and thank you for listening! Holler back at [email protected] or 

  • Habakkuk Why Dont You

    Habakkuk Why Don't You

    24/05/2020 Duração: 40min

    The most anonymous of the minor prophets tells God about himself, then sings to him anyway. We reflect on having feelings and learn that back in the Old Testament days, being rich and being drunk were one and the same. 

  • Nahum and Hers

    Nahum and Hers

    10/05/2020 Duração: 33min

    God's latest prophet is one of the bloodthirstiest so far, and we ponder the merits of warmongering for righteousness. Nahum warns of Nineveh's destruction, babies are being dashed, etc. Women, again, are reliable symbols and objects of shame in the Israelites' tribal propaganda.

  • Magic Micah

    Magic Micah

    26/04/2020 Duração: 34min

    On the brink of the apocalypse, we skip our testimonies and dive right into the Bible's 33rd book- our halfway point. Modest, lowly prophet Micah reminds God's people what their morality should be. We question our own motives and whether any reason to be good is as good as any other. 

  • Jonah and the Big Fish

    Jonah and the Big Fish

    12/04/2020 Duração: 38min

    Our most relatable prophet so far gets a message from God and instantly runs in the opposite direction. A short stint in the belly of a large sea mammal gives Jonah a second chance, but he promptly takes issue with Yahweh's choices again.  *This episode was pre-recorded before Coronavirus lockdown; please stay healthy & safe, and keep the faith*

  • Ob-La-Di, Obadiah

    Ob-La-Di, Obadiah

    29/03/2020 Duração: 47min

    This Sabbath, we're joined by guests Meghan and Rachel, who help us unpack one-chapter Obadiah and offer fresh eyes on Yahweh's signature moves. We also talk Catholic school, social media and the ever-looming threat of human extinction. *episode recorded pre-pandemic/lockdown; please stay safe and healthy!*

  • Famous Amos

    Famous Amos

    15/03/2020 Duração: 41min

    In our 30th episode, humble [nonfamous] shepherd Amos hears from God that Israel will be punished in the same fashion as its evil neighboring towns. There's a mention or two of adulterous women, and we see Yahweh make his pettiness and intent to harm very clear. 

  • As Told By Joel

    As Told By Joel

    01/03/2020 Duração: 37min

    Yet another of Yahweh's wacky messengers warns the people of doomsday and better times to come. This time, the karma is real and the mountains will leak sweet wine. What we lack in knowledge of Joel's history or personality, we make up for in dark/terrible/great/lovely prophetic visions.

  • Hosea Can You See

    Hosea Can You See

    16/02/2020 Duração: 47min

    In this book, the prophet Hosea gets some convenient orders from God- take up with loose women to teach the people a lesson! As Israel is condemned for its idolatry and adultery, we check our own gratitude and faith.

  • Daniel and the Lions Den

    Daniel and the Lion's Den

    02/02/2020 Duração: 55min

    Daniel gives the God of Israel a good name during the Babylonian exile by interpreting dreams, sending a king to live in squalor, getting his friends new jobs and showing off a few mind-blowing miracles. We admire him sticking to his guns in enemy territory, and wonder about the line between taking due credit and being sufficiently humble.

  • Ezekiel Bread

    Ezekiel Bread

    19/01/2020 Duração: 01h12min

    This episode, we meet a kookier prophet than Jeremiah. Ezekiel draws the line with his bread recipe, suffers for his art and makes more dirty whore analogies than anyone before him. 

  • Black Holes and Lamentations

    Black Holes and Lamentations

    05/01/2020 Duração: 50min

    It's arguably the saddest book of the Bible, and the one with the most cannibalism (so far). Like God himself, Lamentations is a mixed bag- depression, resignation, absurdity and worship. We nervously laugh through the atrocities and debate the merits of shame in our 25th episode. Happy 2020 from BCBS!
