Mark, Isaiah, and Biblical Hebrew

So this fall I'm taking two courses at LCU: Elementary Biblical Hebrew and a text course on the Gospel of Mark. Don't be surprised when I begin discussing these topics. Hebrew is simple enough... well, the pursuit of the course, that is. You know, to learn the language; that's the point. The Mark class, however, is somewhat more intriguing. The basic thesis of it is that Mark should be read in light of the prophet Isaiah and that such a reading has tremendous impact for its interpretation.

All this to say, I'm excited about this semester. Hopefully I'll get to write some on learning Hebrew and the Mark/Isaiah readings. I pray you'll join me on this journey, and also that I may remember to share it with you!

Grace and peace,

The Fall at School

School has started again in my neck of the woods, and the signs of its arrival are many: incoming freshmen, one day of good food in the school cafeteria, school flags everywhere, on-campus construction (well, this isn't exclusive to the start of the year), and an electricity in the air that is due in part to the excitement on campus. The other part is the dry weather, wind, and the resulting static that shocks me every time I get out of my car. But for many, the start of school is a time of new beginnings.

Gettin' Hitched

Sorry, guys. I have something more important than blogging going on. I'm'a gettin' married!

I'll likely not blog again for some weeks at least; no idea how long that will be.

Grace and peace to you all,
