if you want to stopthemadness you have to keep it real.............
i went back and read your link; would you agree that paul, in a sense, contaminated the message of the gospels with roman beliefs, or at least certainly shepherded the new testament in alignment with his hellenstic worldview? perhaps he did indeed have a conversion on the road to damascus about his own behaviour, then continued to cram Essence into a babylonian jar. one look at constantine reveals a pragmatist, not a visionary. imo.
i never did get it. there has always been this cognitive dissonance with respect to the king jame's bible. and other versions. i'm sorry i don't read aramaic so any interpretation i'm a little skeptical about someone else's word for these matters.
i am that i am can be translated and subsitituted, in the aramaic, as "i will be what i will to be." that's just one example that jumps to mind. anyone else see the implications of this?
the only possible benefit of continuing to view the new/old testament as a seamless work is to marry the spirit of the law with the letter of the law (read --one's own covenant). if that's the purpose of your post, then i support that and am mindful of that in my own life.
