When translating the Latin Vulgate version of the Bible, Jerome had an easy-to-make but serious "oops" with Genesis 3:15, the protoevangelium, the first prophesy of the redemption of man. Most Bibles render it, "...he shall bruise you on the head (or, crush your head), and you shall bruise him on the heel". But Jerome made it say, "...she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel", as found in the Douay-Rheims Roman Catholic Bible.

Where can I get a hat like they have?
The Eternal Word Television Network promotes Roman Catholicism, and they also admitted that Jerome did the translation of Genesis 3:15 wrong. Enter William Tapley, self-proclaimed scholar of prophesy (with experience in furniture), "Third Eagle of the Apocalypse" and "Co-Prophet of the End Times". He said so, then it must be true. Tapley is Catholic, and was unhappy with ETWN's admission. Now we can let Pastor Christ Rosebrough of Fighting for the Faith come in. He played some of Tapley's material and gave commentary. My recommendation is that you click here to download the episode, skip ahead to the 18 minute 37 second mark, and listen through 27 minutes 30 seconds. Or just play the whole thing if you like. For the original Tapley video, click here. But I'll give you my conclusions on him: his porch light is burning, but ain't nobody home. And how nutty can you be when another nut calls you out?
