    G’day, Mike.

    Had you stayed in your former profession, taken a commission, and made it to Field Rank; you wouldn’t need to be considering a crossing of the Tiber 😉
    However, both the guild of New Testament biblical studies and the wider evangelical movement would’ve been the poorer. You do good.

    God bless,
