More Pseudo-Wrong

There's little enough real Wrong around these days, and now here's some more pseudo-Wrong:

New Testament Commentary Reviews

The blog's pseudonymous author is in fact "NTWrong" rather than "NT Wrong" and he introduces himself thus:
NTWrong is a former pastor, whose son is now attending Bible College. New Testament Commentary Survey is written with Mr. Wrong’s son in mind as the primary audience. There is no reason to suppose that thousands of people will make their way to this blog. However, Mr. Wrong hopes the site will be of utility to the occasional individual who stumbles across it.
It's interesting that the author is apparently unaware of real Wrong.  Perhaps the early Christians similarly hit on the idea of being pseudo-Paul independently of one another.

Thanks to Mike Grondin on the Gospel of Thomas e-list for the link.

I didn't realize there was another NT Wrong out there! I'm not sure which of us came up with the idea first. I think my use of it may predate 2008, in a different context (i.e., my current blog isn't the first time I've used the pseudonym).

I love the fact that you came up with it independently! That NT Wrong has become something of a (pseudonymous) celebrity in the small world of Biblical Studies blogs and there have even been conference papers and articles discussing him.
