After presidential candidate Donald Trump told crowds that the Bible was his “favorite book” but then could not tell interviewers what night be a favorite verse (or any verse), Twitter picked up on the idea of creating a “Trump translation” of various Bible passages, phrased so as to capture that distinctive Trump idiom. Among the best at this game has been Eric Metaxas, well-known evangelical author, speaker and radio host. Here’s a sampling of his #TrumpBible offerings:

A good wife, who can find? I found three. #TrumpBible

And Jesus came to them walking on the waves and said, “Have you seen the polls? I’m like WAY ahead. It’s not even close.” #TrumpBible
