Under a month now before the SBL/Blogger’s Dinner.
We had our morning reading, talking about spiritual wildernesses, and a big breakfast.
Like our ancestors, we have sinned. We have done wrong! We have acted wickedly!
Our ancestors in Egypt were not impressed by the LORD’s miraculous deeds. They soon forgot his many acts of kindness to them. Instead, they rebelled against him at the Red Sea.
Even so, he saved them– to defend the honor of his name and to demonstrate his mighty power.
He commanded the Red Sea to dry up. He led Israel across the sea as if it were a desert.
So he rescued them from their enemies and redeemed them from their foes.
Then the water returned and covered their enemies; not one of them survived.
Then his people believed his promises. Then they sang his praise. (Psa 106:6-12 NLT)
Have you ever been through the wilderness? It gets tough, sometimes, doesn’t it?
Then, my daughter and I headed out to Hawk’s Nest for some quality daddy-daughter time. It seems like everyone else had the same idea. Of course, in southern West Virginian, that is one of the best places to go to get a beautiful view of autumn here.
I finally have five reviews finished and will be posting them this week. I’ll post my short work on the Psalms of Solomon, a few posts planned on textual criticism, as well as proposing a theory for some of the missing books as inspiratio angusta. That’s the plan, anyway.
Otherwise, I hope everyone is getting some sleep – I’m not!
