Too bad Joseph is a total stud and Potiphar’s wife has a thing for him.
Byas, Jared; Enns, Peter (2012-04-09). Genesis for Normal People: A Guide to the Most Controversial, Misunderstood, and Abused Book of the Bible (Kindle Locations 1529-1530). Patheos Press. Kindle Edition.
This flippant attitude toward Scripture is one that seems to be prevalent among modern day “Evangelicals”. I must honestly say that I have a great disdain for it.
1. Nowhere do we read that Joseph is a stud. That is exaggeration and eisegesis.
2. It is a careless handling of Scripture that wants to bring modern profane viewpoints to bear on this ancient, holy book.
Along with his very bad theology, this is the reason that I refuse to recommend Enns’ work.
