If you find the mass murder of innocent civilians spiritually uplifting, you’re sure to love the latest set of seven new illustrated Bible stories over at The Brick Testament. While the southern kingdom of Judah struggles to find just the right mix of death and destruction to appease God into granting them peace, the northern kingdom of Israel suffers great bloodshed mainly due to a system of political succession in which anyone who murders the king in cold blood is immediately granted the kingship. Though for thousands of years this was indeed how many nations appointed their leaders, fortunately here in the United States we learned our lesson and swiftly amended the Constitution after the brief but turbulent Oswald and Ruby administrations of the 1960s.
