I, and several other St. Blog’s parishioners, blogged
about the “Good As New” translation (or should I say, bastardization)
of the Bible. Here’s another
article that provides more examples of the atrocities held within. It’s not just about bad philology.
“Henson even cuts out eight entire New Testament books that don’t
suit him: 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, 2 Peter, 2 and 3 John, Jude and Revelation.
There’s addition as well as subtraction. Following one scholarly sect, he puts the
Gospel of Thomas alongside
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, though Christianity discarded Thomas. Henson makes
the debatable claim that it’s “probably” among the earliest Christian
writings and “possibly” as early as the other four.”
