You may have preached some of these, such as the notion that “the eye of a needle” (Mark 10:25) was the name of a small gate in Jerusalem. In Urban Legends of the New Testament: 40 Common Misconceptions (B&H Academic), David A. Croteau digs into common misinterpretations of New Testament texts and phrases and offers a more accurate understanding of these passages. An innovative addition to the text is the use of 10 QR codes that enable readers to go online and see the author work through 10 urban legends and better understand how to interpret texts properly for yourself. This is a book preachers and teachers will find interesting and useful.
