Work and play

Yesterday I finally met up with Telford at church, and as I suspected he's just been swamped with the move, along with a virus that's decided to visit his family at an extremely inconvenient time. He said his limited writing time until mid-August is going to be taken up with his book, so no more historical Jesus stuff till then.

I don't know exactly what his book is about, apart from being theological obviously. But he startled me a couple weeks ago by telling me that I'm in it, so he's going to let me take a look at part of it before he sends it off. It's funny, I've thought before that our emails, blogging and other discussion could be compiled into an interesting book someday, but I wasn't expecting anything this soon! It will be fascinating to see what he's done with it.

I'm going to be off the air for a while myself pretty soon. My mother is flying into town on Friday and we're going to go sightseeing in L.A.'s near abroad (San Diego, Santa Barbara, SLO, etc.), so I don't expect to be blogging for about 10 days after that. Up till then I will endeavor to bring as much bloggy goodness as I can, loyal readers.

Deuteronomy 28: 15-68 The God of Jesus?

What's that, a talking point?

It is a talking point, if anybody thinks it's a good question. I've been reading both the Koran and the Bible, a few pages per day, since just before the war in Iraq. I'm near the end of the Koran. In the Bible, I've reached the Book of Samuel. I can't get the verses from Deut. that I cited out of my head. I can't reconcile the horror expressed in those lines to anything in the New Testament, or even in the Koran. Certainly, IMHO, this is not the God to whom Jesus prayed...
