Word for Word Translation

This meme image was inspired by a comment left on this blog by Tim, in response to the webpage for a new Bible claiming it is a “word-for-word” translation, in which he wrote, “Trying to read the English translation directly in an interlinear would confuse Yoda.”   [Read more...]

Warp Speed Jesus (Ascension Day Limerick)

Jeff Carter wrote the following limerick, inspired by my post “Ascension Deficit Disorder”: It is a part of our Christian creed that our Jesus ascended, indeed, but he ‘aint, to this day, escaped the Milky Way, unless, that is, he’s attained warp speed. [Read more...]
