    Summary

    1And the LORD appeared unto [Abraham] in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; 2And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, 3And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant: 4Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: 5And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.
    --Genesis 18:1-5, Authorised Version

    Summary

    A Judean woman gave Shimshon life and a Judean woman killed him, they say. That’s the pshat. They also say that one shouldn’t take a text at its pshat. So be wise, woman, and listen to me.

    Summary

    Father Will Graham walked down the long empty dirt road towards a seemingly abandoned village just outside Florence. There were ravens perched on every available surface, puffing out their feathers and warning each other of Graham’s approach in their rough voices. Their bronze eyes flashed cruelly in the fading sunlight. A bad omen.
     

    If you are easily offended and/or a deeply religious person, you may want to give this one a miss.

    Thank you very much to @daughterofthemurderhusbands for the art for Chapter One!

    Summary

    Midrash Aggada is a traditional method of exploring scripture drawn from the Jewish tradition--rabbinic and Talmudic. A light, rather flip definition might be "Sacred fanfic told using scriptural characters and situations to explore theological premises." Storytelling with theological whup-ass potency.

    As I have said before, I've tried to stay away from too much theology and doctrine in this. But on Christmas Day, as the last section before heading toward New Years, it seems fair and reasonable to write this as another aside, and let Sherlock the atheist and Mycroft the theist have a discussion from the heart of their own individual uncertainties.

    It's a Christmas midrash about Christmas midrash, as Mike tries to explain about believing the unbelievable, and having faith in what you can only imagine.

    On any given day I'm both Sherlock and Mycroft in this argument. I quite enjoyed writing Sherlock's furious and defiant disbelief.

    Summary

    "Afoot Sisera fled to the tent of Yael Hever's wife, for there was peace between King Yavin of Hatzor and the House of Hever the Kanite.

     

    And Yael went to greet Sisera and told him: Here, my lord, come to me; fear not. And he turned into her tent and she covered him with a blanket.

    [...]

    And Yael Hever's wife took a tent's stake and a hammer in her hand and quietly went to him, and she struck the stake through his temple all the way to the ground; and he had been asleep and exhausted, and so died."

    - Judges 4:17-18, 21

    Summary

    What did Cain and Abel fight over? What if there were more than one way for humans to create life? What would YHWH have to say to the creation of his creation? Can something which was not born, but made, have a place in Creation?

    Summary

    "And on the first month of the year the People came to the Desert of Zin, and set camp at Kadesh. There Miriam died and was buried. And the People had no water, and they mobbed upon Moses and Aaron." - Numbers 20:1-2

    "Because you did not believe in me, to sanctify me in the eyes of the People, for this you shall not bring these People to the Land that I have given them. Those are the Water of Strife, that the People strove with the Lord and he sanctified them." - Numbers 20:12-13

    Summary

    The third instalment in my ficlet series about Esther, the heroine of Purim. The idea was to let her give us an insight into moments of her life - short snippets that blend midrashic material with kabbalistic concepts and, of course, her own intimate POV voice.
