So-called “Rape of Dinah” story as a lego scene. Just don’t do it.


The creator of the Brick Testament relies fully on a very poor…I repeat: A very poor translation of the Bible to be shocking. Don’t think I’d let my kiddos play at his house. um. ever. He enjoys constructing and photographing the most graphic and/or violent stories of the Bible.

Why? I’m actually hoping to interview him to hear it from him, but I’m guessing it’s probably just because he can. This type of building with legos is probably quite entertaining when you have an 11 year old type of brain, coupled with the heart of a bitter old man.

FYI This tends to make a crappy sunday school story for kids.

  1. How is this a very poor translation of the Bible? I’m using the RSV and I have: “when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her, he seized her and lay with her and humbled her.”

    Sounds like rape to me…

    But what translation are you using and what do you think this passage really says?
