    I can’t read it, apart from the odd word, but I know exactly where it’s from. 😉 I even understand the subtlety of the last statement of the first sentence, which shows that even with hermeneutics, you’ll still have arguments that will never end. I can argue my position very strongly, but I don’t mind if people disagree.

        I had no idea you owned a Bessaflex. I’ve thought those were so cool for the longest time. Never pulled the trigger.

        I also can’t read Greek, so I hope I’m not missing the joke 😬😬

        What can I say—I’m a man of many surprises.


        Anyway, no joke here…it is Greek, and it is biblical. And it IS on the wall of a burger place, for reasons that I don’t fully understand.

        So there you have it.

    John 1, King James Version:

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    The same was in the beginning with God.

    All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

      …well I pretty much expected that from you.


      Now would you believe me if I told you that the quote was on the wall at a burger place called “The Burger’s Priest”?

      (The English text differs slightly, and is on the wall right next to it…but I see you used the King James…)

      Of course, it goes without saying that you make it to Edmonton, and I buy you a burger there.
