    And John specifically departs from Greek grammar rules in John 14:16 and elsewhere, using a masculine singular pronoun to refer to the neuter word for "Spirit".

    IIRC, in John where Jesus is quoted as referring to God as "father" more than the four Synoptic gospels combined.

    They added a synoptic gospel?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

  5. Amen Jedidiah, Cerebrum123 amen'd this post.

    For the longest time I couldn't remember which of the 4 gospels were the synoptics -- it was a weird mental block. Then one day, just like a light coming on, I thought ... I don't have to remember which ones ARE - I just have to remember that John ISN'T!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    I'm triggered; I prefer to think of Jesus as a queer black woman (yes, this is actually what an article in a decent journal did).

    When I have the time, I'd love to see how badly they distort the original Hebrew and Greek.

    If you go to the Amazon page
    https://www.amazon.com/Inclusive-Bib.../dp/1580512135

    and click on "look inside" there are quite a number of pages you can read.
