Dr. Craig Blomberg Reviews The Passion Translation Book of 1 Corinthians

BibleThinker

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-translationDr. Blomberg’s book – Can We Trust The Bible? https://www.amazon.com/Can-Still-Believe-Bible-Contemporary/dp/1587433214For 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 Intro0:17 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.
