Inverted Orthodoxy #342 - Continued defence of the Message and Eugene Peterson & Who was the naked g

Jun 6, 2024

In this weeks episode, Pastors Kyle, Blake, and Doug discuss the following:

1. You guys talk about and promote The Message ‘translation’ by Eugene Peterson a lot. I totally disagree that it is a reliable translation of the Bible. I wouldn’t consider it a translation at all, actually. Maybe a commentary. Please could you read this article that compares some passages in the Bible to what Peterson wrote? And please could you respond and tell me your thoughts? Thanks.

2. A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.“

Mark 14:51-52 This seems like an odd verse in the middle of Jesus’ arrest. Can you please add some clarity? Do we know who this young man is? Is it significant that he ran away naked? HELP!!!
