Holy Texan accent, Jared.
Have you dropped that, or just disguised it better?
Woah, Jared had a Southern accent!?
wtf where is this coming from?
Guys, he’s from Texas. Both he and jensen did speech/accent training to get rid of/mellow out their Texas accents for the show.
Most actors do speech training to make their speech relatively neutral so they can sound like they’re from a wider range of places, which opens up more roles for them to play.
holy fuck take me
I AM EXPERIENCING SOME BIG BREATHING PROBLEMS RIGHT NOW
WHY DID THEY LET THE TEXAN ACCENT GO DAMMIT
but wait, I don’t rly hear the accent. He still sounds regular here, only like two times did his accent slip??

If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also
This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.
So Jesus is advocating a nonviolent psychological warfare tactic exploiting social norms re: dominance & perceived superiority.
I like Jesus an awful lot.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.”
