Rock Thru the Bible with ApX This Week
Fri., Jan. 20. 2023 3:46pm EST

In April 2022, we introduced a new feature called "Rock Thru the Bible." Our friend David Michael has been making lists of ApX parodies to go with each week's readings. He's also been creating playlists of corresponding lyric videos for them on YouTube. You can find those video playlists at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt2lHtRV1wziK5v4xYKu9Qw/featured
