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.

    So you are admitting the whole thing is a literary construct? Interesting.
