Just checking to see how many complaints you get from proper church-folk for the word "pissed" appearing in your blog. John Wesley are surely rolling in their graves! lol :)
As you may or may not know.... 'pisseth' is a perfectly good English word found in the Old Testament, and is not an example of any sort of profanity. John Wesley himself used the word. BW3
Haha...that's true. I do remember a certain angry preacher on youtube delivering a sermon on that very term... :)
Dr. Witherington:Perhaps you are already aware of a youtube video that exists called something like "worst sermon ever," but it deals with the "pisseth against the wall" translation in the KJV (1 Sam 25:22, 34; 1 Kgs 14:10; 16:11; 21:21; 2 Kgs 9:8). The highlight of the sermon for me is the statement "the translator's of the NIV pee standing up." I greatly enjoy your blog, and I invite you to check mine out (http://hesedweemet.blogspot.com).All the best!
If you want some humor, trying getting a bunch of teens to read the KJV version of the Balaam story. You know, the one that uses the word 'ass' instead of 'donkey'.
