Which version of the Bible has "Yoda," and where?
(Note: my obsessive sense of fairness drives me to admit that this is a trick question, and it does reflect my high estimation of the perverse intelligence of my readers.)
UPDATE: well, you-all have labored hard and faithfully (and fun-ly). It's high time for me to deliver. Now, remember: I said it was "a trick question."
"Yoda" is found in the Greek text of Luke 3:26 — τοῦ Μάαθ τοῦ Ματταθίου τοῦ Σεμεῒν τοῦ Ἰωσὴχ τοῦ Ἰωδὰ
That last name is more often transliterated as "Joda" (NAS, ESV, CSB, etc.).
But any Greeky guy or gal could tell you it's really... "Yoda."
Have fun with you I did. Hard you tried.
But last laugh, I had.
