The New SBL Lexicon Entry on ‘Tolerance’

To help you wade through SBL documents please note that the appearance of the word ‘tolerance’ doesn’t mean what you think it means.  Rather, in the new SBL lexicon, ‘tolerance’ stands for tolerating like-mindedness. Essentially when SBL texts utilize the word ‘tolerance’ in all its various forms it actually means

‘We’ll tolerate your views so long as they align perfectly with ours’.

If your views don’t align with the views of the SBL executive board then – oddly – you are deemed ‘intolerant’.
