Distortion in The Bible (King James version)
“Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one anothers feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.”
Distortion is used to show advancement of the character or story through description or action. It is used to further the readers knowledge of the true beliefs and morals of the character through thoughts and action. In the bible distortion advances Jesus' character through the washing of his disciples feet and his final foretelling and forgiveness of the betrayal, through healing and touching lepers, his interaction with peter after his assent and resurrection, and his reaction through the woman who stole his power in the country of the Gadarenes,
Jesus is the savior, he is the only begotten son of the Lord thy God, a prince of men, the savior and redeemer of man. Jesus was the only perfect man to have ever lived and he died for our sins so that one day we can once again live with him. Distortion is peppered throughout the bible and through it it...
