The Year of Living Biblically-A.J. Jacobs Part 1

"In the third century, the scholar Origen is said to have interpreted literally Matt. 19:12 'There are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven'-and castrated himself.  Origen later became a preeminent theologian of his age-and an advocate of figurative interpretation."

our Pastor Ben just did a lesson on Origin's dividing up Divine love into agape, phileo, & eros--all pretty bogus I learned. ....and, I just told Jana about Portlandmania! Too funny
