The Very Model of Biblical Philologist

If you are a Bible geek, and a fan of Gilbert & Sullivan, you will love this (less than 4 minutes).

Truly amazing. Wet your pants funny.

Thanks to Josh Tyra, who arranged it, wrote the modified lyrics, and posted it on youtube, and to Jim West who brought it to my attention.


  1. This was great! I showed it to my kids…who clearly didn’t get it (nor did I really) and that led to them showing me a video of the Periodic Table set to this song, which then led to us watching a video from the ‘Pirates of Penzance’ where we watched ‘I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General’. Overall, good times, and my kids and I both learned a little something. 🙂
