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...]

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.

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...]

BW3 Jesus and the “Scribal Elite”: Chris Keith’s Latest by larryhurtadoIn the latest tome from one of our most prolific recent PhDs, Chris Keith offers an argument about the initial causes of tensions/conflicts between Jesus of Nazareth and what Keith terms "the scribal elite," i.e … [Read more...]

How Jewish Was Paul?– Hurtado’s Answer

2-fish-anchor

The below is a helpful little post by Larry Hurtado about the Jewishness of Paul. I have a couple of caveats with it, namely Paul says he as a Jew has a choice about being the Jew to the Jew (1 Cor. 9). He no longer sees Torah observation as an obligation even for Jewish Christian like himself. He can either do it, or not do. He is no longer under the yoke of Torah, and what Paul does say is that the Mosaic covenant was temporary, and was eclipsed by the new covenant which is viewed as a … [Read more...]
