This biblical book has a pretty squeaky clean image. There are no drugs and no sex…unless you count the author telling you that "God will judge fornicators and adulterers" (13:4). Cheery. There also isn't much in the way of violence except for all the references to blood and guts and death on a cross. And then there's that one pretty gruesome description of martyrdom:
Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned to death, they were sawn in two, they were killed by the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, persecuted, tormented. (11:36-37)
Hey, no one ever said being killed for your faith was pretty. Our advice? Just skip this passage during storytime and the kiddies should be a-okay.
