''[[http://www.thebricktestament.com/ The Brick Testament]]'' is a project consisting of sections of ''Literature/TheBible'' illustrated with photos of {{Lego}} figures reenacting them.

Apart from the obvious stylistic choice, the site is also notable for illustrating not only the well-known Bible stories, but emphasizing the less palatable sections that you will ''never'' have learned in the typical Sunday School, such as "[[http://www.thebricktestament.com/judges/iron_chariots/jg01_19a.html The Iron Chariots]]".

Oh, and have we mentioned that the author is an atheist who likes to ''[[AuthorTract mock the very subject he is illustrating whenever he has the chance]]''?
!! This webcomic provides examples of:[[note]]in addition to tropes found in Literature/TheBible itself, of course[[/note]]

* AMillionIsAStatistic: Averted. During the story of Noah's Ark, he goes out of his way to remind us that yes, Noah's family and some animals lived on the boat, but everyone else on the ''planet'' dies. Every man, woman, and child drowns around them. When the rainbow of peace shines over a field of skeletons, it's almost comical.
* AnachronismStew: PlayedForLaughs - [[http://www.thebricktestament.com/genesis/the_descendants_of_seth_and_cain/17_gn04_22.html Tubal]] is shown making all types of bronze and iron tools - including sextants, jackhammers, power drills, and power saws.
* AngryEyebrows: [[{{God}} Yahweh]] has them.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In [[http://www.bricktestament.com/judges/samson_slaughters_1000/jg15_14.html this page,]] the insults that the crowd throw at Samson are "Murderer!", "Arsonist!", and "That riddle sucked!"
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Well, these are LEGO figures, after all.
* Literature/TheBible
* BibleTimes
* BuiltWithLego
* CallingTheOldManOut: Revelation has several scenes where the people call God an egotistical megalomaniac, which is in actually in keeping with several verses from the book itself. (Even the Beasts get in on it.)
* GodIsEvil: The take on things. The stories tend to avoid allowing the people killed by Yahweh or the Jews to just be a passage in passing, with some verses broken up into several individual comics to emphasize the killings.
** One comic jokes that the reason the Jews decided to start worshipping Baal is that they really liked the idea of a god who wasn't constantly killing them.
* InsaneTrollLogic: The teaching of Paul in the epistle for Romans is illustrated with this statement.
--> '''God:''' Man, it takes a lot of patience to put up with all these people I made irrevocably evil only for the purpose of destroying them in order to make my wrath and power known. I really should be commended.
* KubrickStare: Jesus, especially, with an incredibly serious look on his face.
* LightIsNotGood: The angels have maniac evil faces (most notable in the Revelation section) despite their white clothes and butterfly wings, which makes [[GodIsEvil Yahweh's evilness]] more obvious.
* LighterAndSofter: Oh so very much subverted. LEGO doesn't make everything cuter.
* {{MST}}: Some characters add in snarky comments during some scenes.
* NightmareFuelColoringBook: The choice of medium makes the blood'n'gore (represented by heaps of translucent red tiles) and mass destruction that much more disturbing.
* OverlyLongGag: Adding all the "great-great-great-great-great (and so on) grandson" titles in front of names.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Takes Joshua 6:25 literally and shows Rahab the prostitute living in a modern city.
* SettingUpdate: The Law and the teaching of Jesus are illustrated in modern setting.
* ShownTheirWork: Every comic includes a modern English translation of the original Bible passage.
* StealthParody
* VisualPun: Very much used.
