Yah, I read the whole New International Version cover to cover, most of the King James (4) but not in order (had to skip around among some of the more boring and incoherent bits of that version), most of the Greek Interlinear New Testament, a lot of the hippy-like "The Way" version and the more pedestrian American Revised Standard version. I also read huge amounts if not most of the "Interpreters Commentary on the Bible."
I also read one of the older versions of the Book of Mormon (while it still had magic orbs, official polygamy, and stuff like that in it), and most of the Jehovah's Witness version of the New Testament (a hilariously bad translation created just to obscure some of their theological and social assertions that flatly contradict the actual New Testament).
The Interpreters Commentary was noteworthy, in that it is intended for priests, pastors, and professors, not really for laymen or students, so it includes explanations about how much of the Bible was pieced together from literary fragments, hero-stories, and wisdom literature of former and foreign cultures. Once you've read what the theologians, church historians, and theological archaeologists have to say about the various books while discussing it amongst themselves, you either go completely mad or forever abandon the idea of the Bible being intended as a literal interpretation.
This was when I first learned about "psuedoepigraphy," the once-honorable tradition of writing books in the name of a former philosopher or leader as a sort of homage, thus analyzing current problems or issues from a revered/ancient point of view. It was a valued literary style in those days, sort of taking the author's own ego out of the equation, and also good for hiding the real author's identity from the authorities. These days we call it parable, allegory, or forgery, depending on the intent.
In case you didn't realize it, I DO have a sense of humor. How about you?
