I heard an ELCA pastor last night say that the story of the Centurion and his request that Jesus heal his servant was a story about the Centurion (Luke 7:1-10) and his ‘boyfriend’. He claimed that παις in Greek means … Continue reading
And what qualifies dear Trevor to hold such an idiotic view? Why he’s a college student with a passion, of course. Who is in the process of earning a bachelor’s degree. In business admin. Not theology. Business admin. And he’s … Continue reading
And then when you get there the article informs you that there’s no connection between the two- but now that you’ve been sucked in by the deceptive title, why not hang out and read about the author’s view of the … Continue reading
That’s lunacy. It’s both historically ignorant and, worse, it implies that no one but English speakers have a real Bible. Utter nonsense and, frankly, demonic. This is this year’s dilettante.
BAR republished a piece yesterday that was first published several years back about ‘children’ in Ancient Israel. Apparently when it first appeared it wasn’t as well received as one might imagine. One commentator observed back in October of 2018 This … Continue reading

False prophet!!!! Watch the video of the false prophet falsely predict the Exile’s 4900 year duration.
This is what happens when you have a blind hermeneutical commitment and are unwilling to recognize your own error.
There’s an archaeologist who says he has discovered the very pillar in Jerusalem where Abram and Melchizedek met… Nope, not the Onion. Though by all rights it should be. With many thanks to Mark Elliott for pointing it out- An … Continue reading

This is how you pander to a special interest group:
This is what happens when exegetes stop caring about the interpretation of scripture and find themselves looking for something to do to occupy their time: faddism and ‘WhatIfIsm’.
