Interesting read and a good repost to all those many fine people who think
The King James version is the be-all and end-all for any "real" Christian.
I can't tell you how many Baptists and other Protestants have told me
over the years they could care less, and have no idea, what a "Vulgate Bible"
or a "Septuagint" is because the King James is the only real bible.<sigh>

No hate, just saying,

Interesting read


True enough, although there was a long tradition of allegorical readings of the Gospels, certainly in Greek (as the Daily Beast writeup admits); and those allegorical readings can be a *lot* more fanciful than what a rationalist might deem a literal reading to be...
