Friday Miscellaneous

This post over at Beggars All is short and needs to be read. I love the observations at the end.

I encountered yet again someone pushing the silly idea that Codex Vaticanus identifies Islam in its rendering of “666” in Revelation 13:18. This ridiculous idea is being circulated by less helpful members of the evangelical community. I provided a link to Dan Wallace’s comments on this idea, and a few thoughts of my own, here, late last year. If you run into anyone promoting this idea, please take them aside and gently inform them that it is baseless and groundless, and is, in fact, embarrassing to the cause of proclaiming the truth to the Muslim people.
