Spring is the perfect season to explore John Shelby Spong’s new book, Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy.

John 5 tells the story of Jesus encountering many sick people, who were lying by the pool of Bethesda in hopes of getting healed. The pool, that was opposite Fortress Antonia, had a reputation for healing the sick. According to a tradition, an angel stirs the waters occasionally and the first one to enter the pool after that would be healed.
