Was Jesus Christ A Woman?

According to a new version of the gospels, He was! The LBI Institute is touting a new edition of the gospels that identifies Christ as a woman named Judith Christ of Nazareth. The version, named Judith Christ of Nazareth, The Gospels of the Bible, Corrected to Reflect that Christ Was a Woman, Extracted from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, takes Thomas Jefferson’s edited Gospel one step further by “correcting” the gender of Christ and God.

“This long-awaited revised text of the Gospels makes the moral message of Christ more accessible to many, and more illuminating to all,” says Billie Shakespeare, vice president for the publisher. “It is empowering. We published this new Bible to acknowledge the rise of women in society.” 

The new version, according to the publisher, revises familiar stories, transforming the “Prodigal Son” into the “Prodigal Daughter” and the “Lord’s Prayer” into the “Lady’s Prayer.” A passage compiled from Luke 2:4-5, 7, 21, with corresponding verses at the beginning of each sentence, says, “And Joseph went to Bethlehem. To be enrolled with Mary, his wife, who was then pregnant ... And she brought forth her firstborn child ... And her name was chosen to be Judith.” A passage on the crucifixion, from John 19:17-18, says, “And She bearing her cross went forth. There they crucified Judith.” Matthew 28:1, 5-6 states, “Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb ... But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Judith who was crucified. She is not here; for She is risen.’”

The book's foreword says, “The Jefferson Bible is faithfully followed by the present book, with the corrections in the name and gender of Christ, the gender of God, and some of the parables.” It is simply amazing what effect the feminist movement has had on our society. The error this “translation” perpetuates is so reprehensible, one wonders if it even merits a serious discussion! God promises in Revelation 22:18-19 that those who alter the Bible can expect grave consequences. May God have mercy on their soul.
