Welcome to the misconception! Our second ever bonus episode, and this one all about the so-very-often misunderstood verse where Jesus says “you will always have the poor with you.”
Did Jesus mean this as an eternal promise for all people, for all time? Or, is it better understood within its cultural context?
We talk about Alaskan old people, alabaster perfume, mid-sentence context shifting, misrepresenting the heart of the Lord, and having Jesus with us always.
