Today in Super Metal Stories from the Bible – courtesy of Ms. Codex 236, fol. 308v – Mattathias gears up to behead a dude who has acquiesced to offer sacrifices to the Greek gods. And that’s how the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucids began! Tune in next time for “Joshua demands of God that the sun and moon stand still, because he’s straight battling right now and he’ll sleep when he’s dead”.
