One For The Home Team...

9 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

-John 4

Funny how the Divine creator of the universe suddenly waxes ethnocentric in the face of the Goy (or in this case half-Goy) .

It's as though he were chanting the home team's "totally awesomeness" to the opposing team.

Interestingly enough, every single time Jesus makes reference to the Gentiles, it's in a typically Jewish derogatory way. Even going so far as to refer to one Gentile woman as a dog, worthy only of the scraps from the master's table.

And lest someone should be thinking, "That fellow just doesn't know the proper Hermeneutics", I'd have to point out that Biblical Hermeneutics is the jabberwockey of theological criticism.

Apply enough time and thought, and you can find theology in a bowl of corn flakes.

As for the "inexplicable" design-theme which many can be made to see in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, well, design-theme can be seen where people wish to see it.

Salvation for the Western Man comes in the preservation of our blood (our unique genetics) from one generation to the next....
