    No zombies in the Bible? Have you not read Zechariah 14:12? “And the Lord will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem. Their people will become like walking corpses, their flesh rotting away. Their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.”
    Walking corpses! That is literally The Walking Dead. Hahaha!!

    Great stuff, as usual. Love the podcast!
