Cain and Abel: A Cameo from Year One

2nd March 2009

My previous post on Cain and Abel reminded me of a somewhat funny (OK, it is funny — just a little dark) trailer for a new Harold Ramis film, The Year One:

The film follws the adventures of two lazy hunter-gatherers (Jack Black and Michael Cera) as they travel the ancient world. It appears that they not only encounter Cain and Abel, but also Adam and Eve,  Abraham and Isaac, and Sodom and Gomorrah. Hmmm… I don’t think it is trying to be biblically accurate!  The film is scheduled to be released 19 June 2009 according to IMDB.

If you are interested in more films based on the Bible, check out my “The Old Testament on Film” pages.

Biblical Studies Carnival XXXIX Online at Dr. Platypus

1st March 2009

The thirty-ninth Biblical Studies Carnival has been uploaded by Darrell Pursiful over at his blog, Dr. Platypus.  Darrell has done an excellent job highlighting the best of academic biblical studies in the blogosphere for the month of February, 2009.  I especially like the fact that  a couple of my posts were mentioned as I try to get back into some regular blogging.

The next Carnival will be hosted by James Gregory over at his self-titled blog,  James Gregory’s Blog. Make sure to nominate posts throughout the month of March.

For more information, please see the Biblical Studies Carnival Homepage.
