Exploring Our Matrix – Now With More Matrix!

I’ve been trying some new templates, layouts, color schemes and other style modifications on the blog. The header is now more “Matrixesque” than it was. I thought about putting a LOST background behind the blog title, but having given the blog a title which mentions the Matrix, it seems appropriate to stick with it, however much [Read More…]


Well, after several attempts at importing the comments from Blogger into Disqus, I’ve returned to Blogger’s built-in comment feature. The transition seems to have kept all previous comments, including those made in Disqus, and so hopefully we can carry on our conversations uninterrupted. Sorry for the confusion, if there was any!

The Disqus comments feature is now working. But the process of transferring older comments into the system will take longer, as I had to restart the process. But it seems to be working! Feel free to comment on this post and any subsequent ones for now, and hopefully comments on older posts will reappear soon. [Read more…]

Still Waiting

At the recommendation of a number of other bloggers, I’m going to try transitioning to Disqus comments.

Apparently the process of transferring over takes a little while, and so hopefully [Read More…]

A Johannine Revolution in Historical Jesus Studies?

Paul N. Anderson has published an article at The Bible and Interpretation entitled “A Fourth Quest for Jesus…So What, and How So?” It argues for a rethinking of the way we pursue historical study of Jesus so as to include more of the evidence from the Gospel of John.

Share Buttons

Blogger is adding yet another new feature – share buttons added to the bottom of posts. I’ll be switching that feature on and see what happens. It doesn’t look like it has been activated yet, and when it is, I don’t know that such buttons will be added to older posts. But it is still yet another [Read More…]
