Oops- Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. (Gen. 22:13). #Fail
Dear Tom, just so you know, it’s not ‘Revelations’… It’s Revelation. Apparently NT Wright isn’t sure of the title of the book. In this video, at 4:23, he calls the Book of Revelation the “Book of Revelations”. How sad. F-
