ROCK THRU THE BIBLE

In April 2022, we introduced a new feature called "Rock Thru the Bible." ApX friend David Michael has made lists of ApX parodies to go with each week's readings, and he continues to update them as we release new parodies.

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
