I love his scholarly book. One of the few I kept when I cleaned out my library.
Time will tell if it was worthy.
I think Robert Langdon is digging through the Vatican Library right now.

And context always dictates usage.

Now let's show the readers the passage in context.

Luke 21: 20-21
Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees >when< the kingdom of God would come. He answered them,“The kingdom of God >is not coming with a visible display<. People won’t be saying,‘Look! Here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ because >now the kingdom of God >>is<< among you<.”

WHEN will it come?

It won't.

It IS NOW among you.

So thanks for helping to prove my point.

Bible schoolin' Christians is always fun.

<quoted text> Greek words have multiple meanings. For example. Matthew 10:16. Behold i send you out as sheep in the midst (entos) of wolves. Under your assumption this must mean i send you out as sheep on the inside of wolves. Or Luke 24:36.''He Himself stood in their midst.'' Yours would mean,''He Himself stood in their insides.'' Does not make sense.
"in the midst of" is a better reference for "entos".

You do raise an intersiting arguement in that even the original Greek manuscripts are often ambiguous and that no one can say with certainty what many passages are actually saying.

Just more proof that "The Word of God" isn't the words of God, unless God is an idiot or evil.

Well, let me know what he comes up with. I need to know whether to put Clement of Alexandria and the Secret Gospel of Mark on EBay real quick or hold on to it.

Don't assume that "non-believers" are atheists nor that all atheists are the same. You would be falling into the same fallacy that some atheists and "non-believers" do when they make blanket statements about "Christians".

You think there is a God, therefore God is in your mind.

I'd say that it is in limbo unless/until the missing Theodore letter, or an older version is found. That would be the time to put the book on the market.

Then again, I spend money on old comic books. So I'm not the brightest guy.

I think Dan Brown is the contact for Langdon and he ain't talking. Probably an agreement for making such a mess of the Vatican Library last time.
