Dr. Craig Blomberg Reviews The Passion Translation Book of 1 Corinthians
Open description for time stamps. I've hired a number of scholars to review Brian Simmons' seriously flawed Bible version. This is my "Passion Project". Today's video features Dr. Craig Blomberg and his thoughts after reviewing the book of 1 Corinthians in The Passion Translation. Scroll down for links to Dr. Blomberg's paper. This same link will have ALL the reviews and papers as they are published. You should see a total of 5 uploaded by the beginning of January. After that I will need to wait a while for more scholars to finish their papers and do interviews. I hope to have it all done in the next few months. What's was my goal with this? I want the people of Christ to know the truth about this "translation" so that they can love what God has said without Brian Simmons altering it in unjustified ways. However, in the course of researching for this project I've uncovered some other very concerning things about Brian Simmons' teachings including false prophecy and various extreme claims regarding his own spiritual experiences. I'll be sharing some of this in future videos as well since I have realized that he is not just styling himself as a Bible translator but as an inspired Bible interpreter who is going to release a last days transformation in the people of God so that "everything that can be said about Jesus can be said about you". Yeah, it's weird. LINK to all interviews AND papers as they are uploaded. https://biblethinker.org/index.php/the-passion-translation Dr. Blomberg’s book – Can We Trust The Bible? https://www.amazon.com/Can-Still-Believe-Bible-Contemporary/dp/1587433214 For even MORE content on TPT here is a playlist of my own research into this translation. I think it’s even worse than many of the scholars have said, but that’s not because of a failure on their part. They restricted themselves to reviewing the translation text of a single book each, and only glancing at the footnotes, whereas I looked at the work as a whole and found various other issues of concern including misleading statements from Brian about his own experience as a translator for the Paya Kuna Bible, his degree of education and even stunningly false prophecies he has given. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ3iRMLYFlHvXha4rjCj1Po0WLQc_jGGW My website https://BibleThinker.org *These timestamps will work after the video has premiered. 0:00 Intro 0:17 Why this video is important: Brian Simmons wild claims. 1:55 What my Passion Project is. 2:35 Who is Dr. Blomberg and why is he reviewing TPT? 4:52 Dr. Blomberg's attitude toward paraphrases. 6:41 Dr. Blomberg is not driven by bias against TPT but by credible concerns. 7:51 Is TPT misleading people when it calls itself a "translation"? 9:27 A great example of why TPT isn't a translation. 10:07 The "glaring, recurring error" in TPT's footnotes (the "Aramaic"). 12:38 This is REALLY bad. Brian Simmons is deceiving people about what "all the scholars" think. 17:37 Simmons' knowingly misuses Mike Bird's scholarship even after Dr. Bird rebuked the misuse. 19:42 Brian Simmons claims that his FOOTNOTES in TPT are the result of God's inspiration. 23:50 Why we should reject Simmons' claims. 24:53 Why the "lack of italics" in TPT is deceiving people. 27:29 1 Cor 1 vv. 11-12 that show TPT is inconsistent with italics. 30:38 How Simmons messes up the "gender role" passage in 1 Corinthians. 35:07 Simmons has an axe to grind on the topic of women which he seems to be wrongly forcing into his translation of the Bible. 38:48 The one place where Simmons translation seems complementarian. 43:26 What attracts people to The Passion Translation? 45:03 Examples of Simmons adding "passion" to the Bible where he shouldn't. 46:08 TPT is named after and angel that Brian saw, according to Brian Simmons. 46:38 How Brian represents TPT as if it's a quality work without bias. 47:42 But Brian sometimes admits his translation is very much a sectarian work. 52:03 Simmons "reverses Paul's meaning" in 1 Cor 10 v. 13. 56:05 TPT perpetuates a "long standing mistranslation" in 1 Cor 11. 1:01:11 Dr. Blomberg thinks TPT can cause a doctrinal problem with the Trinity. 1:04:11 An example of hyper-charismatic alterations in TPT. 1:10:35 TPT once again mishandles a passage related to slaves. 1:13:39 Quick recap of other places TPT does this. 1:14:32 1 Cor 7 v. 36 is "particularly confused." 1:17:18 The best parts of TPT are also the worst parts. 1:18:11 1 Cor 13 shows us TPT's style. 1:21:21 Don't use TPT as a serious Bible. 1:22:13 Dr. Blomberg responds to Bill Johnson's quote. 1:23:33 TPT distorts the meaning of the Bible? 1:24:19 Misleading claims from TPT web site. 1:25:23 Should TPT be in apps and sites? 1:27:21 Did Brian really get secrets from God? 1:29:15 Brian's abuse of homonyms in the name of God. 1:33:29 Dr. Blomberg's advice to someone who loves TPT. 1:34:34 A Surgeon General's warning. 1:36:02 Can We Still Believe The Bible? 1:37:40 Last things. 1:39:56 "Cameo" from Brian.

ESV: Through the Bible in a Year
January 18: Genesis 32–33; Psalm 18:1–24; Matthew 21
Old Testament: Genesis 32–33 Genesis 32–33 (Listen) Jacob Fears Esau *32 *Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him. *2 *And when Jacob saw them he said, “This is God’s camp!” So he called the name of that place Mahanaim.1 *3 *And Jacob sent2 messengers before him to Esau his brother in the land of Seir, the country of Edom, *4 *instructing them, “Thus you shall say to my lord Esau: Thus says your servant Jacob, ‘I have sojourned with Laban and stayed until now. *5 *I have oxen, donkeys, flocks, male servants, and female servants. I have sent to tell my lord, in order that I may find favor in your sight.’” *6 *And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, “We came to your brother Esau, and he is coming to meet you, and there are four hundred men with him.” *7 *Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed. He divided the people who were with him, and the flocks and herds and camels, into two camps, *8 *thinking, “If Esau comes to the one camp and attacks it, then the camp that is left will escape.” *9 *And Jacob said, “O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, O LORD who said to me, ‘Return to your country and to your kindred, that I may do you good,’ *10 *I am not worthy of the least of all the deeds of steadfast love and all the faithfulness that you have shown to your servant, for with only my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two camps. *11 *Please deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I fear him, that he may come and attack me, the mothers with the children. *12 *But you said, ‘I will surely do you good, and make your offspring as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.’” *13 *So he stayed there that night, and from what he had with him he took a present for his brother Esau, *14 *two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, *15 *thirty milking camels and their calves, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys. *16 *These he handed over to his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, “Pass on ahead of me and put a space between drove and drove.” *17 *He instructed the first, “When Esau my brother meets you and asks you, ‘To whom do you belong? Where are you going? And whose are these ahead of you?’ *18 *then you shall say, ‘They belong to your servant Jacob. They are a present sent to my lord Esau. And moreover, he is behind us.’” *19 *He likewise instructed the second and the third and all who followed the droves, “You shall say the same thing to Esau when you find him, *20 *and you shall say, ‘Moreover, your servant Jacob is behind us.’” For he thought, “I may appease him3 with the present that goes ahead of me, and afterward I shall see his face. Perhaps he will accept me.”4 *21 *So the present passed on ahead of him, and he himself stayed that night in the camp. Jacob Wrestles with God *22 *The same night he arose and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven children,5 and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. *23 *He took them and sent them across the stream, and everything else that he had. *24 *And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. *25 *When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. *26 *Then he said, “Let me go, for the day has broken.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” *27 *And he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” *28 *Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel,6 for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.” *29 *Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him. *30 *So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel,7 saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.” *31 *The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his hip. *32 *Therefore to this day the people of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh that is on the hip socket, because he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip on the sinew of the thigh. Jacob Meets Esau *33 *And Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, Esau was coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among Leah and Rachel and the two female servants. *2 *And he put the servants with their children in front, then Leah with her children, and Rachel and Joseph last of all. *3 *He himself went on before them, bowing himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother. *4 *But Esau ran to meet him and embraced him and fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept. *5 *And when Esau lifted up his eyes and saw the women and children, he said, “Who are these with you?” Jacob said, “The children whom God has graciously given your servant.” *6 *Then the servants drew near, they and their children, and bowed down. *7 *Leah likewise and her children drew near and bowed down. And last Joseph and Rachel drew near, and they bowed down. *8 *Esau said, “What do you mean by all this company8 that I met?” Jacob answered, “To find favor in the sight of my lord.” *9 *But Esau said, “I have enough, my brother; keep what you have for yourself.” *10 *Jacob said, “No, please, if I have found favor in your sight, then accept my present from my hand. For I have seen your face, which is like seeing the face of God, and you have accepted me. *11 *Please accept my blessing that is brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.” Thus he urged him, and he took it. *12 *Then Esau said, “Let us journey on our way, and I will go ahead of9 you.” *13 *But Jacob said to him, “My lord knows that the children are frail, and that the nursing flocks and herds are a care to me. If they are driven hard for one day, all the flocks will die. *14 *Let my lord pass on ahead of his servant, and I will lead on slowly, at the pace of the livestock that are ahead of me and at the pace of the children, until I come to my lord in Seir.” *15 *So Esau said, “Let me leave with you some of the people who are with me.” But he said, “What need is there? Let me find favor in the sight of my lord.” *16 *So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir. *17 *But Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built himself a house and made booths for his livestock. Therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.10 *18 *And Jacob came safely11 to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, on his way from Paddan-aram, and he camped before the city. *19 *And from the sons of Hamor, Shechem’s father, he bought for a hundred pieces of money12 the piece of land on which he had pitched his tent. *20 *There he erected an altar and called it El-Elohe-Israel.13 Footnotes [1] 32:2 _Mahanaim_ means _two camps_ [2] 32:3 Or _had sent_ [3] 32:20 Hebrew _appease his face_ [4] 32:20 Hebrew _he will lift my face_ [5] 32:22 Or _sons_ [6] 32:28 _Israel_ means _He strives with God_, or _God strives_ [7] 32:30 _Peniel_ means _the face of God_ [8] 33:8 Hebrew _camp_ [9] 33:12 Or _along with_ [10] 33:17 _Succoth_ means _booths_ [11] 33:18 Or _peacefully_ [12] 33:19 Hebrew _a hundred qesitah_; a unit of money of unknown value [13] 33:20 _El-Elohe-Israel_ means _God, the God of Israel_ (ESV) Psalm: Psalm 18:1–24 Psalm 18:1–24 (Listen) The Lord Is My Rock and My Fortress To the choirmaster.

Compassion Without Compromise: Episode 676
Caring without compromising your values, plus (kinda) natural ways to share your faith, and should you date someone who’s not your type?      Featured musical artist: Liz Vice Roundtable: Care, But Don’t Cave Your friend doesn’t share the same values as you. You want to be nice, but when he or she does something you don’t agree with, how should you respond? Should you tell them exactly what you think of their bad behavior? Brush it off? Wait and see? Our guests discuss what it looks like to be respectful toward people we disagree with, and how to love others without stonewalling, enabling, or compromising your faith.    Guests: Sara Bess Kemeny, Austin Johnson, Glenn Stanton Culture: The Long Game of Sharing the Gospel Let’s face it: Sharing your faith with others is hard. We all know someone we’d love to see come to Christ, but the question remains: How do I talk with him or her about spiritual things? Randy Newman is a firm believer that evangelism looks more like a gradual process than just one conversation. Before becoming a Christian in college, he spent years interacting with believers and learning from them. Whether you find sharing the gospel scary or not, this conversation will encourage you.  Inbox: Dating Outside Your Type Is dating someone who’s not your type a valuable exercise or a waste of time? Is there a way to broaden who you find attractive? Lisa Anderson weighs in.
