The Old Skool Testament
The Old Skool Testament are the stories of Yah-Weh-Oh and his crew and their b-boy battle against the evil alien warlord Satan-os Zillak!
In the beginning, God, who is sometimes called Yah-Weh-Oh, or just Yahweh, made everything! Pretty cool, huh? Even more amazing he created everything in 6 days and a long long long long long long long long long long time ago...That means what they tell you at school is a hoax! Have you guys ever made anything cool, like a cool model airplane? Imagine making a whole model world! Pretty sweet huh? God just turned on his super-powerful computer and designed the entire world in 6 days! And you know what he did on the seventh day? He just chilled. That's pretty cool! He made Adam and Eve, too, and put them in Paradise. But there was trouble brewing. You see, when Adam was made, Satan-os, a very evil sorceror, tried to kill him. Ever since, he's been seeking his revenge on Adam.
First Satan-os turned himself into a giant snake, and kidnapped Eve! And it wasn't just a normal snake either, it was a firebreathing Snake with legs...of doom! Adam found the Apple of Destiny, which transformed him into a super-powerful kung fu master. He found Satan, and battled him for 50 hours straight! It was totally sweet! Adam totally flipped out and went all wha-cha and kicked Satan-os in the head. Man, you should have seen it, it was wicked. In the end, Adam won! He and Eve then left the Garden to strike it out on their own together, and lived happily ever after. Then God gave them an awesome speed-boat, and they sailed off into the sunset to do battle with the wicked Sun Midgets of the far East. Pretty cool story huh? That's how it is with all God's stories, because that's how awesome God is. Don't you want to be awesome like God!?
Much later, Adam's great-great-great-grandson Noah had an adventure of his own. God told Noah that something really bad was going to happen. It seemed that orcs were plaguing the planet, God would have to flood the whole world! Noah made a huge boat, called the Ark, and brought all of the animals on board, along with the Apple of Destiny, which he still had in his possession.
It rained and rained and rained, until the Earth was starting to flood. Satan didn't like this at all, and called forth a great army of Orcs to steal the Ark and kill Noah! Noah didn't know what to do. He was standing near some turtles, holding the Apple of Destiny, and thinking about the situation. Then, all of a sudden, a lightning bolt struck the Apple and destroyed it, but its power went into the four turtles standing near Noah. The turtles were transformed into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! They jumped down and fought the whole army of Orcs with their ninja weapons, and saved Noah and the Ark with a little help from Adam and his rocket speedboat! Then, Epic lulz ensued aft. Then they got out Noah's X-Box, played Halo and ate pizza until the flood went away. Pretty sweet story, huh?
Many many years later, the people had become enslaved by the Pharaoh of Egypt, a deadly ninja with an army of hellish Scarab men. One of God's Chosen People, Moses, didn't like this at all, but he didn't know what he could do about it. Then, God came down and told him that he was the Chosen One, and gave him a magical staff, and a deck of mystical cards. There were 10 cards, each with its own power. Moses used the first card, and it turned all of the Pharoah's water red and poisonous. The Pharaoh countered with a Clean Water card! What was Moses to do!? Moses then laid down the second, the 1000 Frog card, which summoned a swarm of battle frogs! Holy God, 1000 frogs!? Moses was really laying it down, wasn't he? But then the evil Pharaoh countered with a Frogstomp card, which stomped the frogs! Can you believe it?! Moses then played the SuperDragon card, Darkness card, and Omega 10 card, which made the sky go dark and a huge Omega 10 Dragon appear! The Pharaoh then revealed that he was Satan-os all along! The dragon fought with Satan and his army, and Moses led his people, the Holy Vampyre Slayers, out of Egypt while Satan was distracted with the mighty Dragon of Might. Satan-os beat the dragon, though, and chased Moses across the vast desert of bones. Moses then used the magical staff to part the Red Sea, which allowed him to lead his peeps across. When Satan-os chased him, Moses threw out the Royal Flush card, which closed the Red Sea all around Satan, who disappeared beneath the waves. As a reward, Yah-Weh-Oh gave Moses 10 more cards, the mystical Commandment cards, which he used to help him rule Justly over his people. God also gave Moses some sweet pogs!
They didn't. Soon after, the terrible Philistines mysteriously began to become more powerful and Vampyre-like. The Israelite Vampyre-Hunters tried to fight them with stakes and holy water, but somehow the Philistines had gotten ahold of lasers! Huge lasers! David, who had always dreamed of being the leader of the Israelite Vampyre-Hunters, began to fight back with a magical stake handed down to him by his father, who got it from his grandfather, and so on. Finally, David met the Final Boss, Goliath, on the field of battle. Goliath was thirty feet tall, and carried a huge laser cannon, shot missiles out of his arms, and housed a powerful thermonuclear device. David managed to dodge the laser blasts, trying to get close enough to drive the stake into Goliath's robotic Vampyre heart but suddenly a dimensional portal opened up, and more evil robot Vampyre's came pouring out! Through the portal, David could see another figure: Satan-os! He was behind this all along, giving the Philistines technology from the future! What was David to do?! Surely he was doomed! But no, David used the rocket engine on his magical stake to fire into Goliath's heart, where it set off the thermonuclear device, destroying all the other robot Vampyres! After, Satan-os fled and the Israelites elected David their King, where he ruled for 200 years of Awesome Peace! Sweet story, huh?
The New Adventures of Yah-Weh-Oh!
The New Adventures of Yah-Weh-Oh, also called the New Testament, picks up the most awesome story ever with a new character: Jesus Christ. Jesus is the son of Yah-Weh-Oh, and even at a young age showed some of Yah-Weh-Oh's magical powers.
The birth of Christ was fortold by great prophets from the East, powerful warlords capable of casting immense fireballs and lightning storms. They knew that he would have a lot of power, but that his power could grow out of control. They sent three warriors to Bethlehem, where Jesus was to be born, to make sure things were taken care of. You see, they knew Jesus would become too powerful for the mortal realm, they had to stop him now, when he was an infant. A helpless infant, or so they thought! When they got there, a bright star in the sky was shining, and growing brighter and brighter! The warriors knew that this star would eventually consume the whole world if they didn't stop it. Fortunately, they had been told what to do. They turned over baby Jesus, and revealed that he had been born with a tail! If they cut off the tail, though, his power would be stopped. So the evil Eastern Warlords brought out their Wicked Dagger of Slaying +5, and attempted to cut off the tail, but it wouldn't cut. Then, when they looked into baby Jesus' eyes, they saw that they burned with an intense fire, the fire of his psychic powers! Jesus then used his mind warping technique to blast the foolish assassins into space, where they formed the other stars in Orion's belt. From that point on, every foe Jesus vanquished got his own star, and that's how God created the Heavens.
Later in his life, Jesus had some amazing adventures! When he was young, Christ as he liked to be called, wandered for days, and finally stumbled into what used to be Paradise. However, it was now overrun with dinosaurs! And Satan-os was there trying to shut off the electric fence! If the fence got shut off, there would be all kinds of chaos: the dinosaurs would be free to roam the earth again and learn the forbidden Horadric magic! This could not happen. So Christ made his way through the jungle, but before he reached the control room, he was confronted by a vicious velociraptor! The velociraptor jumped at him, and Christ touched the velociraptor, and the Velociraptor was tamed. He then hopped on the velociraptor and rode him all the way to the control room, where they both crashed through the window and stopped Satan-os from shutting off the fence! Satan-os tried to run away, but he was confronted by an army of Cyborg T-Rexes. Nobody knows the result of this massive battle...
Afterwards, Jesus loved his velociraptor, and rode it almost everywhere he went. He made a lot of friends, who followed him, and all seemed to be going well. Unfortunately, Jerusalem, the Israelites' home city, had been invaded by the evil Roman Empire of Destruction! Jesus gathered an army of 5000 people on a hill outside the Fortress City. Unfortunately, they only had two swords and a helmet collectively, so Christ decided to win the battle himself. Christ took the swords, and turned them into lightsabers, which he wielded in each hand. He turned the helmet into a battle tank, which he controlled with his psychic powers, and his velociraptor aided him in the fight. Christ managed to easily destroy the 200,000-strong Roman Army by himself, using only lightsabers in each palm. Because of this, the day was to be known as Palm Sunday, which became a massive holiday. Christ then rode triumphantly into the city on his velociraptor and was soon elected the new King of the Jews.
Unfortunately, things weren't going to always going to stay this good. You see, the Romans wanted to have Jerusalem back, and they would stop at nothing, even murder!. Caesar the Bloody amassed a huge army of clone soldiers and attacked the city with his jet fighters. Even with their lightsabers, Christ's followers were unable to stop this assault, and one of Jesus' best friends, Lazarus, was killed in the battle. By the time Jesus learned of this death, Lazarus had been dead for a few days. Understandably, everyone was sad. Jesus, though, told Lazarus to wake up, and he did! Lazarus had come back from the dead! Pretty sweet, huh?
Soon after, the Jews were cornered in their fortress, low on ammunition, with only rocks to throw. Jesus, however, told them not to use them. He said, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Jesus then knelt, picked up a rock, and hurled it at the Roman army. The rock exploded with a huge BOOM, and obliterated the entire Roman army, leaving a giant crater in its place. This crater is now know as the Mediterranean Sea. Pretty cool, huh?

Bonus Story! The Book of Hectór
Hectór was the name of Jesus' pet raptor, whom he rode into Jerusalem on many an occasion. The book of Hectór is an apocryphal tome and therefore it is recognized as legitimate by only one religion, The Most Supreme Church of Uncyclopedia. The book tells of what happened for the other thirty-nine days when Jesus was in the desert, because being tempted by Satan really shouldn't take a long time. Most Bibles don't specify that Hectór was with Jesus during this episode, but he was, and managed to dictate his story to Joseph of Arimathea after Jesus' death. Apparently Jesus spent a long time getting ready to go to the desert. He had packed a backpack with a tent, some juice boxes, several dozen boxes of animal crackers, and apparently several gallons of water which were promptly turned into wine. Hectór tells us that Jesus got very drunk on the ride to the desert and kept asking "Are we there yet?" only to respond with a disappointed groan when Hectór answered that they were not. Then they arrived in the desert that night(they really didn't need to travel to find a desert, they were in Israel). Hectór then tells us of playing cards with Jesus in the desert, and telling each other jokes, and eating sandwiches on the tops of soft dunes while watching the sun set in the distant sky. Hectór says that even though the sun made your eyes feel hot and dry, and you couldn't see very well after a while, every sunset was worth it. Then Hectór finally tells the story of the temptation by Satan. Apparently Satan was very nice, he asked if he could join them for lunch, to which Hectór and Jesus happily said that he could. Satan had brought sandwiches, Ham and cheese, which were Jesus' favorite, and Hectór liked them too. Soon Jesus and Satan went off behind a dune to talk, they told Hectór to stay there, because they were talking about "Grown-up stuff". So Jesus made Hectór a toy truck out of a rock and Hectór sat and played with his new truck. Soon, Satan came back from behind the dune, but Jesus wasn't with him, when Hectór asked where his friend was, Satan told him to be quiet and in the words of Hectór "He touched me inappropriately". This is as far as the text goes, we do not, at this point, know what happened to Hectór after this incident, although it is strongly suspected that this is about the time when Jesus and Hectór left the desert to go back to Jerusalem.
