Do you think something is misinterpreted?

I know this could go south fast...I hope it doesn't...I believe people have different or even great insights into
some things others have overlooked or not considered.

What profound understandings have some missed, in your opinion?
Sometimes where a coma is placed changes the meaning of an entire quote, for example.
Inspired by some 'new takes' on another thread.
Thanks.
What 'new takes' are you referring to?

Right...but I wanna know where Jerwade found any insight
that others don't get... to not blame others and it is all on us. I mean, we get that, but does it talk about that anywhere in the Bible?

Richard, our informative Jew,
had a different 'take' on the Abraham and his son affair.
If I see it again I can point you to the thread.
