Last week, I read a post on Reddit from a guy who only saw the final Harry Potter movie but recreated his own version of the entire series’ plot based off that limited knowledge. He was joking around, but it showed how you might miss out on some major details of the full story if you only catch glimpses of it.
I bring that up because of Jamie Bernstein. You all know Jamie. She’s written a few guest posts here, like when she attended an anti-vaccination rally and when she got kicked out of the AutismOne Con. Jamie’s awesome.
She was also raised as a secular Jew… and never had to read the New Testament.
So everything she knows about the life of Jesus is based on what she’s picked up from pop culture and friends and things she’s read… but not church and not the Bible itself.Elyse at Skepchick asked Jamie to explain the New Testament story as she knows it and Jamie agreed:
Sounds perfect to me!
For what it’s worth, I’m sure you’d get a warped version of the Bible if you asked most Christians, too. Some don’t even know the Ten Commandments.
