Hi Mark... miss your lectures.

Thanks for your NT Blog post, but I read it too quickly and drove myself nuts looking on the "USA" channel for this program to DVR.  I didn't think "SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL" at 8:00pm.  

Finally went to right link for the info:

Maurice Casey (1942-2014)
I was so sad to hear of the death of Prof. Maurice Casey at the weekend (see JimWest , Dominic Mattos , Larry Hurtado , Jim Davila ).  Anyone familiar with contemporary New Testament scholarship will know of the massive contribution that he has made. His en...

The Library of New Testament Studies has a new editor!
I decided several months ago that after several years as editor of the Library of New Testament Studies book series, the time had come for me to step down.  I have greatly enjoyed working on the series, and I am proud with what we have achieved over the las...

Not an academic, but long-time avid biblical archaeology reader and traveler, my cynical reaction to "Jesus' wife's sister" in this controversy would become a satirical melodrama -- probably not fit for TV -- were I a writer.  

How many mishpocha (family members, in Yiddish transliteration) can one expect at a family gathering (naturally, with food provided) without some type of huge controversy and dispute arising, let alone accusations of "fraud, forger, liar, grandma told me she was going to leave ME that necklace," and all the other endearing interchange that brings a family closer together to believe in and support one another?

Being a little loose with one of the Passover Seder Four Questions, "Why should that millennium be different from all other millennia since?"

We have had many good experiences here -- great service, beautifully presented sashimi. But today the white tuna was definitely off, and the red tuna was not fresh. We pointed it out in a friendly way but didn't get much feedback or explanation. We won't be returning after this. Disappointing because we had enjoyed several previous visits.

First class service. Creative Painting provide excellent value and they are efficient and responsive and professional. George is the friendly face of the company and goes out of his way to be helpful. We had our exterior washed, painted, with wood replaced and problems solved. Looks great. All round excellent job. Satisfied customers!
