"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Daily Prompt Love <3 Bible Says What?

30 June 2019

My focus in studying Anthropology was cross-cultural perspectives of religions, with a specific eye toward where the origin of Christianity intersected with Judaism. I am not a Biblical scholar, but I know a little. 

Thinking on how many times the Christian Bible has been translated, rewritten, revised. Looking to the Old Testament, even the major religions can’t agree on how many books should be included. The Jews have 24 books, the Protestants 39, the Catholics 46, and the Eastern Orthodox have 51.   And contemporary scholars believe there are between 300,000 and 400,000 different versions of the New Testament. There are more different versions of the New Testament than there are words in it. 

Make art about what’s lost in translation.
