The poor lady doesn't even realize that [2] "'embarrassment' as a scholarly test of authenticity" is rooted precisely in [1] "'embarrassment' as emotion" ...


... as the phrase "some things are too embarrassing for Christians to be invented" fully confirms.


More, what else does the poor lady speak of, with her ...


“... that the royalty referred to in [Balaam's prophecy, Numbers 24:17-19] should ultimately be born in such lowly circumstances I believe was embarrassing.”


... if not of [1] "embarrassment" as emotion?

Why don't can't you just admit your complete and total blunder here?


Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason, my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, for to go against conscience would be neither right nor safe.  Here I stand.  I can do no other.  God help me.  Amen.

The pseudo-scholarly blunder, and the persistent obtuseness, is entirely of the poor lady, here ... EmbarassedCool

Unbelievable.


You'd die before admitting a blunder.


I'm sure there's a (multisyllabic) name for that...

Perhaps you should go back and try reading #9 and apply it to the stupidity we read in #8.  What, is it all the embarrass faces that stirs you up?

Is royalty typically born on the way as the King and Queen travel on a donkey to register for a census in order to pay their taxes?


Does royalty typically find no room at some inn for the Queen to give birth?


Is royalty typically placed in beast of burden feeding mangers?


Do virgins typically get pregnant by "spirits"?


Do husbands typically believe their wives when they tell them they were impregnated by "spirits"?


Two IS multi ...




I'm afraid it takes more than that...
