Reader's Diary #1095- The New King James Version Bible: Ephesians
On Mondays, when I write about short stories, I try my best not to write a post longer than the story itself (easier said than done when it's flash fiction). Likewise, when I write about the books of the Bible, I try not to read more about the book than the book itself. Again, it was somewhat difficult with Ephesians. At only 6 chapters, I found it difficult to find anything new to focus on. There was a piece about women having to be submissive to men, but I pretty much knew how that research was going to go: apologists would say this interpretation is wrong. I read article after article defending this supposedly controversial text yet barely came across any that actually criticized it. That's when I realized that I was just looking for something juicy in an otherwise unremarkable book.
