Imagine if American History had been written in a foreign tongue with no original copies. Then copied and re-translated a few times before being compiled and translated by a counsel of all middle class white southern Fundamentalist male Christians. Well there you have it my friends and it’s called The King James Version, not the individual and actual words of God so much as the finely word based doctrines of men.
Even though these scribes did their best to manipulate inspiration, it’s amazing that the stories and Jesus have stood the test of time. It’s that you need to focus on and not the carefully chosen individual words designed to describe something else altogether. This is why myths, parables and journey stories are the preferred method of written inspiration, because they limit the ability of scribes to mess with the truth.
