The Vicar of Dibley

"Vicar of Dibley jumps in puddle" is one of the funniest IMO, it is on Youtube Maria DelVecchio channel. One comment puts it at season three episode one 'autumn'
Was Jim (played by Trevor Peacock) a parody on the Bible ? Yes yes yes, no,no
Ex Preacher John W. Loftus describes the Bible as a book at war with itself, with each author trying to subtly refute or ammend previous ones.
Higher criticism of the Bible can be quite funny.
Did "The Vicar of Dibley" mention Exodus 34v26 which puts the 10th commandment on the second set of tablets as, "Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk"?
Or what about the idea of wave offerings as seen in Exodus 29v26, "Wave the breast of a ram before the lord before you put it on your barbecue" ?
Numbers 6v20 has a similar idea. I have never done that before serving my guests at the BBQ, will I be struck down as allegedly happened to Herod in Acts 12v23 for merely failing to give praise to God ? One wonders why this didn't happen to other tyrants in history? Would have saved a lot of trouble.
Bible Geek Robert M. Price does a lot of funny lines in his books, such as "The reason driven life". In chapter 36,"Made into missionaries" , paragraph "You are the salt of the earth" he mentions the idea that if you are in a hurry and can't be bothered with the Jehovah Witnesses at your door then you could say, "I wish the rapture would happen right now and whisk you away"the
