Here’s a nice post by my friend and colleague Scot McKnight…… Actor James Faulkner, who starred in one of the most successful faith-based movies of 2018, has opened up about being filled with the Holy Spirit during filming. “Paul, Apostle of Christ,” which was released in March of last year, took $23 million at the box office, far exceeding commercial expectations.

Q. I take Lk. 22.38 to mean ‘enough of this (nonsense)’. In other words, Jesus’ is exasperated with the pathetic response of the disciples when he is about to be taken away.
