I was listening to audio versions of some of C.S. Lewis’s essays today, and came across an interesting point. Talking about the judgment that so many of the Psalms call for, he points out that “judgment” in Hebrew, as in the Book of Judges, doesn’t so much mean ‘render a verdict in a court of law,’ but more “to be vindicated or avenged.”
So, one of the books of the Bible could be translated as “The Avengers.”
One thought on “A Point of Linguistics”
You do realize that that makes Stan Lee a Biblical character, perhaps even a prophet? Because I approve.
