This showed up on my Facebook wall today:
I hate to tell the 3 people who attend Joppa Church, but Pastor Roy is selling snake oil.
First, the Gospel of John was not written in Hebrew. It was written in Greek. I seriously doubt even Aramaic was a concern of the original author.
Second, the Jehovah’s Witnesses have backwards translated the Gospel of John from the Greek to the Hebrew and back again.
Third, what’s up with the overly sexualized Fabio-Jesus on the front cover? What is Pastor Roy trying to tell us by picking that cover? What’s he trying to get his hands on?
Anyway, if you do go to the Amazon author page, you’ll note some gems. Not only has he reviewed his own book (with some garbage about tacos) but he trumpets his “250 graduate hours in various areas of study such as Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Jewish Studies, Bible, Archeology, and Geology.”
Seriously, this guy and Little Honey Tee Tee should team up and write a book.
