Ghetto Bible Tales

My name is Jerrica Knicole and I retell bible stories in a comical way. The goal is to make you laugh while teaching you about God and to make learning the bible less intimidating. We laugh but we learn too! The retellings are not meant to offend. I'm just putting a modern and humorous twist on an age-old book. All corresponding videos are currently streaming on YouTube too! (This includes videos made prior to creation of the podcast!)

MOWING THE LAWN WITH HIS TEETH?! NEBUCHADNEZZAR GOES CRAZY FOR 7 YEARS!
Today's episode of the Ghetto Bible Tales is still in the book of Daniel focusing on Nebuchadnezzar, the great king of the Babylonian nation. According to scripture he was an arrogant and prideful king who placed himself on a pedestal and saw himself as a god much like the Pharaoh in Exodus. However, the two greatly differ when it comes to repentance. Unlike Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar's heart softens towards God and he repents in the end.

AM I MY BROTHER'S KEEPER? CAIN & ABEL RETELL
WELCOME TO SEASON 3!!!!Today I'm retelling the story of Cain & Abel. One of the highlights of this story for me is how God was so merciful. He gave Cain multiple chances to "get it right" and even when it seemed Cain had lost it all, God marked him so that no one would bring any harm to him. Still being merciful in the end!
