After Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, he saw ‘‘the Spirit descending upon him like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, ‘Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased”’ (Mark 1:10-11, Revised Standard Version).
Compare that with this new translation:
‘‘A pigeon flew down and perched on him. Jesus took this as a sign that God’s Spirit was with him. A voice from overhead was heard saying, ‘That’s my boy!”’
There are many such chatty or doctrinally denuded passages in ‘‘Good as New: A Radical Retelling of the Scriptures” (O Books), an exceedingly loose New Testament paraphrase by Britain’s John Henson, a fundamentalist-hating Baptist. [Source]
I have covered the "Good as New" Bible in the past but I didn’t see the above quote before and that is pretty whacked.
