"Speaking only from my own experience, I have not seen that to be true. But I certainly recognize how if your early exposure to the book is via Sunday School mis-tellings of the most fantastical parts of the book, it would be hard to shake that first…"

John Muir replied to Lon R.'s discussion "The Most Objectionable Part of the Bible" in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"There is, and there's a hefty contempt in western culture as well.  But, as anyone who has studied the Qu'ran will agree - it's a totally different literary style. It's all prophetic revelation. There are no historical…"

Liam Strain replied to Lon R.'s discussion "The Most Objectionable Part of the Bible" in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"Yes and no. We don't necessarily scour other ancient holy texts (as a society) either. Widespread respect for the Qu'ran? There are certainly pearls of wisdom there too...  Maybe it is the associations we have with current believers…"

"Even more difficult to overcome than the cultural and linguistic chasms  between western man and the bible is the contempt for the familiar.    Jacob had a coat of many colors    Zacheeus was a wee little man  …"

"So it's symbolic not only of the verbal retraction of his birthright, but also his physical rejection of his father and their traditions? "

John Muir replied to Lon R.'s discussion "The Most Objectionable Part of the Bible" in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"So...... to further extrapolate upon the symbolism in the text (assuming we agree it's symbolic writing, and not just an historical account) Dude comes in and he's so hungry he wants the mourning meal cooked for his dad to mourn…"

Liam Strain replied to Lon R.'s discussion "The Most Objectionable Part of the Bible" in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"It's not clear to me given the context that the meal was the Jewish mourning meal - Jacob wasn't making it for anyone else (as its traditionally given by neighbors) and there is no mention of a death he is mourning. The contention that it…"

John Muir replied to Lon R.'s discussion "The Most Objectionable Part of the Bible" in the group Gentlemen Apologists

Regular Joe replied to Lon R.'s discussion "The Most Objectionable Part of the Bible" in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"I admit that I don't know a lot about it but a superficial reading certainly gives the impression that Jacob becomes a hero for tricking both his father and his brother. "
