This Is Why Journalists Should Leave Biblical Interpretation Alone…

Along with most people.

Baby Jesus was a Dreamer in Egypt

Jesus wasn’t a dreamer in Egypt.  He wasn’t a refugee. He wasn’t even in Egypt.  Matthew’s account has him ‘go down to Egypt’ for one reason only- so that he can make use of the text in Hosea which says ‘out of Egypt have I called my son’; i.e., to identify Jesus with Israel.  This is why journalists should leave biblical interpretation alone. They don’t know what they heck they’re doing.

Geesh.  Such stupidity.
