My personal favourite is the e-bonics bible.
Featuring Jesus and his "boys"

Oh, I love transliteration.

Although having studied SOME Hebrew and Greek (Hello, my name is willow and I am a nerd) I could drag this on for a long time.
English as a language lacks the ability to say some things that Hebrew Greek and Aramaic say so elegantly, hence why interpretation is such a big issue.
(BTW, some,not an expert but I can always go dig out my dictionary)

Also, DD and Ragnar, you two are awesome, I need to have you all over for dinner with my family sometimes. I think you are two of the few people in the world who could keep up with my crazy family dinners / joke fests.
Blessings

I like how the first one speaks his mind and poses a pertinent question.
If he spat it out derisively I'd think he might be a cocky self serving type that one obviously can't trust.
The second sounds to be quite the brown noser. I'm guessing that he could just be feeling a bit beaten by the latest of life's events and couldn't carry a lie to save his life. But probably couldn't keep a commitment either.
I have to agree I don't think either is trustworthy. Of course then again maybe they both are. We don't know enough about either one.

While I'm being long winded.
I think since everyone else has rewritten the bible Yoda should too. It would be far more entertaining. I always thought that the whole thee thy and thou were old English vernacular thrown in by the king james schollars. If this is not the case... HOLY FLUFF.

It is. But German and Swedish still have them still today. Du = thou, Dein = thine, etc

Sie = you, Sein = yours.

Swedish is Du and Ni.

Thanks for digging this old threrad out. I wonder what ever happened to Dragonfly drummer, Runewolf, Paganlight etc?

I know what happened to Andy. hex: outtahere: :lol: :lol:

Actually, Paganlight was on not too long ago... She only stayed for a week or so though. :-(

She commented that she thought my Avatar was awesome, and that's why I remember. :lol:

You are confused, and need to research into christian bibles.

The bible has been translated into thousnads of languages around the world, but for thoughts who dont understand the 'thous' etc there are bibles written in modern english.
So many to choose from, and so many shades of meaning --wondering am I which Bible the real one is?

:albino:
No longer caring which Bible is the "real" one. But that is just me, of course. Always find myself wondering why the Bible gets so much discussion on pagan message boards...

Because Pagans can't say we're open minded if we know absolutely nothing about another religion. Personally, simply hearing about a religion that I don't know much about sends me looking for ways to understand it better... Even Christianity.

The second reason, being that many fundies come on, hoping to "find out" about us, and then spend the next month getting frustrated when we say "Thanks but no thanks... I'm happier here." even when confronted with the "truth" of their words. :roll:

Maybe it is an age thing, then? See, I DO know a lot about several other religions---I was a member of one once (Catholic) and I worked for a Prof in Religious Philosophy as a tutor till I thought my eyes would pop out from hammering the stuff into certain heads. So, I guess, I am just old enough to be bored by it.

Especially with the "missionary" sorts who visit pagan boards.
