News from around the Net

Sad news, last night we heard reports of the passing of Dallas Willard (known for his work on Christian spirituality) and Geza Vermes (known for his work on Jewish Roman history, Dead Sea Scrolls, and the historical Jesus).

On the CBE blog is an interesting piece, Is Egalitarianism a Slippery Slope? I used to think this, until I learned about a few egalitarian institutions that actually became more conservative over time (like McMaster Divinity College).

Excellent piece over at BAR on Herod the Great: Friend of the Romans and the Parthians. When I ask the students about the “Parthians” most stare at me with blank faces. And yet they successfully invaded Palestine in 40 BCE and were a constant throat to the Roman east.

    I have, but, have not yet read “The Divine Conspiracy”, so I think I will appreciate Dallas Willard more in the future. Both men in their ways shed more light, IMO.
