Talking Dead: What The Heck Was That Phone Bomb?

by Russ Burlingame

Talkien Dead Reedus, Brown, & ColemanBob From Chattanooga brought some strange messages to tonight's episode of AMC's Talking Dead tonight, and everyone--including those on the show--were trying to figure out what the heck was going on.

Turns out, after a week of people joking about the connection between The Walking Dead's season finale happening on Easter--the day of the resurrection of Christ in the Bible--a Christian viewer decided to turn the tables a bit.

"The hour is coming, the hour is coming. All that are in the graves shall hear his voice. There seems to be no room--," Bob said, before being cut off (they say he hung up), leaving everyone on the show perplexed.

Many fans online immediately assumed it was the Bible verse highlighted in Hershel's Bible and left for the Governor, and it was--but only sort of. Either it's a different translation, a bad recitation or a little of both.

It appears to be a loose quotation of John 5:28-29, regarding the resurrection of Christ.

Still...creepy way to get your message across.
