Speaker: Simon Holloway

We might not be used to thinking of it in this fashion, but the authors of the biblical literature frequently employed humour in their presentation of a good story.

Whether it came in the form of puns and word-play, or whether it was situational, “comedy” is without doubt a biblical genre.

In this talk, Dr Simon Holloway will present examples of biblical humour, drawn from a number of different text types, with the aim of demonstrating a surprising truth: the good book can be funny too.
