Friday 56: Misquoting Jesus

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


OOPS! Almost forgot today!! I woke up late and had to rush off to see a client that I don't normally see on Fridays. It's Spring Break here, so everything is on it's own schedule.

This week's selection comes from the same book I talked about on Wednesday, Misquoting Jesus: The story behind who changed the Bible and why by Bart D. Ehrman. I haven't gotten to page 56 yet but so far, it's a very interesting book.

In Codex Vaticanus, however, the original scribe produced a slightly different text, with a verb that sounded similar in Greek; here the text reads instead reads: "Christ manifests {Greek: PHANERON] all things by the word of his power."

ok, ok I guess I have to qualify this. The previous sentence says, In the opening of the book of Hebrews there is a passage in which, according to most manuscripts, we are told that "Christ bears [Greek: PHERON] all things by the word of his power" (Heb 1:3).
