After All— On the Folly of War

plowshare

After all the wars are over, And all the battles won, After all the blood's been spilt, From here to kingdom come, Do you think it really mattered In the larger scheme of things That this nation took the prize Or that one got no rings? So what if one lasts longer Outlasting all their foes While another bites the dust And sooner tastes the woes. All empires rise and fall Not one endures forever Every nation has a life span Despite plans and best endeavors. After all the … [Read more...]

Yon Witheringtons

bw33

I was minding my own business when I got an email from Germany from one Jochen Froelich. Seems that 30 years ago he went to a flea market, to a bookstall, and bought two old commentaries by Martin Luther which were translated into English in 1635 and 1637 (the one on the Psalms being the later one). Mr. Froelich decided to do a Google search on the Witherington name and came up with me. He wrote to ask if my family has a history of being Bible commentators. Not to my knowledge I replied, but … [Read more...]

A Day At the Races– Keenland

k6

Ahh Keenland, where you see beautiful graceful horses, lots of frantic bettors, and ladies in hats that normally would be called Easter bonnets. But this is the last week of the Spring horse races at Keenland, and so I took my wife Ann and her sister Elaine out for a day at the races. There was also a pretty good spread in the Lexington Room on the fourth floor where we sat and watched the races on a somewhat rainy and windy day. And all this fun is only 15 minutes from our house. Here are … [Read more...]

Hurtado on Wright and Eschatology

tom1

Here below is my friend Larry Hurtado's assessment of Wright's assessment of Paul's future eschatology as discussed in Paul and the Faithfulness of God. See what you think. BW3 ---- Paul’s Eschatology: Further Comments on Wright’s New Opus by larryhurtado Ok, here's what I think is my final blog on Tom Wright's huge (2-fol) opus, Paul and the Faithfulness of God.

Paleography and Carbon 14 Dating

06judas_600

The Green Collection team sponsored an important meeting at the end of March in Oklahoma which unfortunately I could not attend due to our Asbury ministry conference. My friend Larry Hurtado has now reported on the findings, and basically it shows that paleographic dating of manuscripts is in sync with the carbon 14 dating and vice versa. This is because the Green folks allowed some small portions of some their ancient manuscripts to be carbon 14 dated. I myself was not skeptical about a … [Read more...]
