I Might Have Been Wrong About Paul’s Thorn in the Flesh

Back in April, I wrote a blog post exploring the identity of Paul’s thorn in the flesh.

The post was read by many and two New Testament scholars sent me private emails telling me that they found my interpretation to be “very reasonable.”

Sometime later, however, one of my readers took my entire thesis to task with a piece of incontrovertible evidence — an actual photograph that captures “the thorn.”

Apologies to Mr. Bob for wrongly assigning his identity to someone else.

    Thanks for sharing that Frank – and you never know, it could really be quite accurate! Regardless, it brightened my day, and I’m sharing with my brothers and sisters this morning.

    It’s refreshing see a spiritual leader/public figure who is able to admit when they are wrong. Rare. 😉
