The Correctly Updated Version (CUV)

The Correctly Updated Version of the Bible is my paraphrase of the Scripture as revised by great theological themes of the modern American Church. Today’s passage is Matthew 21:12-17. The CUV text follows:

And Jesus entered the temple and saw some selling and buying in the temple.

And he approached the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

And they responded, “That is your interpretation of the passage. You can’t just take a verse out of context like that and you certainly can’t judge someone else. Perhaps the intention of our heart is correct, even if we are doing some things that others find questionable.”

Another continued, “Yaweh will sort these things out, but on this side of the Resurrection, we just have to agree to disagree.”

  1. That was good. A lot of students in my classes “know” that the Reformers were champions of everyone’s right to have his own personal interpretation of the Bible.
