Super Chronic: czetie: elchip: Corvus: Can you point me out the bible verse where Jesus said homosexuality is wrong?

He did condemn sexual immorality, and one would assume he was referring to the misdeeds listed in the OT when he said that.

As I recall, the only misdeed Jesus specifically mentions is adultery ("go, and sin no more"). So it's a good job none of the Republican candidates have that stain on their character as they go about claiming the blessing of God.

I'm no biblical scholar but I know that some translations of Mark 7:21 but not others use the phrase "sexual immorality." What that means is beyond me.

For example, Mark 7:20-23 read as follows in the New International Version: 20 He went on: "What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person's heart, that evil thoughts come- sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person."

By contrast, the King James: 20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

So, rather ambiguous. "Sexual immorality" in one but not the other. And, of course, this was written decades after Jesus died, by someone who wasn't there when he is said to have uttered these words, but that's a different issue.

Any Greek experts out there who might know what the original said?


The web site bible.cc is an excellent resource for comparison. In this case http://bible.cc/mark/7-21.htm will show you all the major translations for that passage. It's worth noting that the King James is probably the least reliable translation in wide circulation.

To compound the problems, even if we could go back to the earliest Greek texts, and even if we could be confident that those texts reflected the actual words of Jesus, you're already one translation away from the language Jesus probably spoke, Aramaic. And even if by some miracle you got back to the original words of Jesus, you might find that he said the Aramaic version of "sexual immorality" and still not know whether that was a euphemism for anal sex, out-of-wedlock sex, wild monkey sex, or jerking off to porn. The fact that Matthew and Mark report the alleged words quite differently is telling.

Hey, that's how we roll. It's like the "War on Christmas". It doesn't exist, and talking about it like it does gets everybody upset, but by god we're going to talk about it...

I'm always confused about why Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reily and their ilk are fighting to get stores to use Jesus to sell products. "This year's big product Snifftel Bits, with a tesimonial by Jesus, "when the Romans rode their horses to the mountain of Olives, they used Sniffel Bits (tm), and I would too!"

It just makes there religion seem that much more pathetic.


I doubt it is their religion, just the religion of the gullible people who give them money by the bucket load, so they have to pretend to follow it while behaving diametrically opposite its teachings (not much different from the people they are fleecing).

Woops, Wikipedia says:

When the video was removed from YouTube on June 16, 2011, due to copyright claims from Black, it had already had amassed more than 167 million views, and had over 3.1 million "dislikes" (87% of total ratings) from YouTube users.

so I guess Black is #1.

Well then you've disavowed the version that does not condemn "sexual immorality." But I don't know which is considered most definitive. I pasted the above text from biblegateway.com, which has a lot of versions. This is a lousy citation, but I do know that the resident head in my college dorm, a professor of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization, told me that the New English version was the best -- although that might have only been for the OT. (This, while scoffing at my having been assigned passages from the King James in my freshman humanities class.)

Oh, I've disavowed all of them. Even the best is removed at least one translation, several decades, and numerous manual copies from a person who may or may not have even existed, let alone said the words attributed to him. The (convoluted) point I'm trying to make is that even if you can get past the varying English renderings, you still won't know what was intended. The most any of these texts, ancient or modern, tell us is what their authors considered immoral at the time they were bending the text to their own purposes.

I also enjoy making fun of the absurdity of being a literalist about a book of which, when all's said done, we don't what it literally says (or said at any given point in the thousands of years over which it evolved).

I'm not sure what your prof's criteria for "best" is -- the New English is certainly very readable. The NIV has a reputation for good scholarship and going back to the best available sources. I join him in scoffing at the King James.

"Closest to the original" was what he said, although I think he might have been talking about OT translations from Hebrew. I did point out to the resident head that we were reading for slightly different purposes than he would be reading for in his field. As mentioned, this was a common core humanities class, and if we're looking at impact on Western civilization and thought, then the King James is undoubtedly an important part of the canon, accuracy be damned. But that's neither here nor there.

Bad choice in my opinion. Malignant cancer will only ruin your life if chemo can't stop it. Rick Perry has the capacity to ruin everyone's life by launching nukes at Iran and Pakistan.

Can you just imagine his environmental policies? "Forrest slashed and burned? Just pray and Jesus will make the trees grow back!" "Drinking water lethally contaminated with arsenic and mercury? Accept God into your life and drink up!"

They still speak Aramaic in Syria. Syriac Christians, that is. Kind of like how non-Israeli Jews use Hebrew as their religious language, so do the Syriac Christians use Aramaic as their sacred language.

Super Chronic: Any Greek experts out there who might know what the original said?


Yes.

ἔσωθεν γὰρ ἐκ τῆς καρδίας τῶν ἀνθρώπων οἱ διαλογισμοὶ οἱ κακοὶ ἐκπορεύονται μοιχεῖαι, πορνεῖαι φόνοι

Breaking it out:

ἔσωθεν γὰρ
After all it is from within

ἐκ τῆς καρδίας τῶν ἀνθρώπων
out of the heart of man

οἱ διαλογισμοὶ
literally the balancing of accounts

οἱ κακοὶ
the evil (goes with the balancing of accounts)
I'm taking this as "financial malfeasance"
Almost all of the translations out there take this as "evil thoughts" and I'm not sure why. Maybe some kind of variance in the Koine that I don't know. And I'm still at work, don't have a dictionary here...

ἐκπορεύονται
flow forth

μοιχεῖαι
adultery

πορνεῖαι
prostitution

φόνοι
murder

So all strung together, you get:
"After all it is from within, out of the heart of man that flow the fraud, adultery, prostitution, and murder."

Nothing about any other sexual practices.
 
2011-12-08 08:19:28 PM  
So to break down the grammar (for the picky monkeys)
ἔσωθεν - adverb meaning "From within"
γὰρ - postpositive introductory rhetorical particle meaning "For" or "after all" - corresponds with Latin "enim" almost exactly. Greek phrases beginning with adverb+γὰρ are almost universally rendered "for it is adverb" or "it is adverb, after all, ..."
ἐκ τῆς καρδίας - prepositional phrase, ἐκ (out of, from) τῆς καρδίας (genitive plural because ἐκ takes the genitive)
τῶν ἀνθρώπων - genitive plural of ὁ ἄνθρωπος (man, mankind) - so "of man" in the sense of "mankind." An alternative would be "of men" meaning individuals.
οἱ διαλογισμοὶ - nominative plural of διαλογισμός (a balancing of accounts, a consideration, a judicial inquiry)
οἱ κακοὶ - nominative plural of κακός (evil, bad) - noun functioning as an adjective modifying διαλογισμοὶ
ἐκπορεύονται - 3rd person plural indicative middle/passive form of ἐκπορεύω, verb with multiple subjects, to flow forth
μοιχεῖαι, - nominative plural of μοιχεία (adultery), co-subject of ἐκπορεύονται
πορνεῖαι - nominative plural of πορνεία (prostitution), co-subject of ἐκπορεύονται
φόνοι - nominative plural of φόνος (murder), co-subject of ἐκπορεύονται

Possibly. Possibly not. Odds are good that a person making public address at that time might have used Greek for it. Aramaic was almost certainly his native tongue, true, but who knows what language he spoke when making addresses.

But it doesn't matter - it's pretty certain that none of what's written down in the gospels is any closer to a first hand account than "Some scribe transcribed what someone told them 50-100 years after the fact." Luke and Acts are probably authored and written by the same person, and the letters are almost all dated to the time they say they are.

But the Gospels are not just books that Christ's followers wrote down as it was happening. So the translation isn't the conundrum here, it's that you're at the receiving end of a 50 year long game of telephone.

Fair enough. For a long time, it was the only version known to most English churchgoers and pastors. Even today there are people who cling to the KJV without knowing (or caring) that it's a shoddy translation from unreliable sources.

I think you'll find that we're in violent agreement here. As I said, even the original Greek text is at least at one remove and several decades from any alleged historical Jesus. And in fact, it's even worse than that since the earliest complete texts we have date from the 4th century, so even if the original written gospels represented a final attempt to capture the testimony of eyewitnesses before they were gone, there's still a gap of centuries between those texts and the oldest copies known to us.

Furthermore, that period was a tumultuous and highly politicized one in which many different interpretations of what Christianity actually meant and how it should be practiced were in competition, often relying on their own gospels for support, and around the middle of that period is when the canon was standardized to the four gospels we know today. So it would be astonishing if the texts have not been modified to support whatever the winning theology turned out to be. (It is almost indisputable that this happened to the epistles: while they do probably date from the period they claim to, there are significant chunks -- often theologically very important chunks -- that are clearly later interpolations.)

It's possible that Jesus spoke Greek -- many of his contemporaries were trilingual in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek -- but speaking to an audience of his compatriots, it's likely he would have spoken Aramaic. There's even a smattering of the Aramaic versions of place names in the gospels and a handful of words in Aramaic attributed to Jesus. The speeches attributed to him certainly don't have the form of Greek rhetoric. But I agree, it's largely moot since there's no reliable connection back from the written gospels to any purported historical Jesus.

Conversely, it's very likely indeed that Paul, Peter, and the other apostles spoke Greek when they took their evangelism on the road as it was the lingua franca of the region.

Early church tradition holds that Mark's gospel was written down by the same John Mark who is mentioned in that gospel, and the most popular tradition is that it represents Peter's dictated testimony while he was supposedly in Rome. An alternative tradition is that Peter went on the road with Luke, who was not an eyewitness, and gave lectures testifying to the accuracy of Luke's written account, while Mark scribbled it all down and later turned it into a gospel.

Of course, all of this is probably complete rubbish, and the reality is that the gospels were written by unknown authors who attached the names of prominent early Christians to their work to lend credibility.

You clowns aren't gonna know what hits ya when ConservoMentum '12 unleashes a SPREAD of TRUTH. Urban out.

This is the single greatest thing I've ever seen on this site.


Christ, I LOL'd. Mike LOwELl, you better up your game.

There has to be some Bayesian metric by which this the lowest rated youtube video... nearly 400k votes on less than 2.5 million views, and less than 3% approval of those actually voting.

-1 = dislike
0 = no vote
1 = like

and then some Bayesian weighting base on total views... I cannot see how this could not be the lowest rated youtube video ever.

Everybody chug a bottle of some effete secularist French wine - I would recommend an impertinent Graves.

unlikely: Have you read "The Five Gospels"? (new window with amazon goodness) It's a fairly good scholarly analysis of this subject.


No, but apparently I'm going to, right after I buy myself Amazon Prime for Christmas.

Also good (and written for the less scholarly) is Misquoting Jesus, which explains not only how the gospels were modified over time, but also how scholars try to trace back through the modifications.

...and by an odd coincidence, SMBC (new window) is perfect this morning

Has anyone yet pointed out the irony of a serious Presidential candidate freely admitting he's Christian and not fearing it will hurt his election chances, while at the same time complaining about people not being able to celebrate Christmas or pray openly in school because of some "war on religion?"

Perry's not being ironic, he's being a rugged individualist fighting against The Man. He's a millionaire and the most powerful man in Texas, and he's not afraid to FIGHT THE POWER!

That's about 18 thousand in the last 3 hours. Nice pace.
