A Fresh Pair Of Eyes

Jonathon Duran is reading the Bible for the first time and posting his thoughts on the chapters as he goes along.

I’m merely a layman reading the Bible to try to understand everything an average American can from a holy book revered by a good portion of the world’s population (and certainly a huge portion of the population where I live). I am skeptical about what morals or lessons I’ll find in the Bible, since what I already know about it doesn’t encourage me to think it’s a very moral or holy text. However, if this book is truly God’s message to humanity then an average person should be able to receive the message from the text without struggling to attain the correct mindset or seeking help from another equally fallible human.

He makes some very interesting observations.
