ReconcilingWorks, an organization of Lutherans for Full Participation, hosts “Love Lost in Translation: A Fresh Approach to Homosexuality and the Bible” at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation (212 East Capitol St., N.E.) Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
The lecture, based on the book of the same name and given by Dr. K. Renato Lings, explores biblical stories and passages that generally comment on homoerotic relationships. Lings delves into mistranslations of the texts into Greek, Latin and other languages and shows how certain translation errors are continued by translators today. Ling explains why he believes these mistranslations are the reason for the controversy in Christian churches over same-sex relationships.
Admission is free and open to the public. For more details, visit reformationdc.org.
