#PapyrusGate

The Egyptian Exploration Society is saying #poxy5345 was never for sale. Meanwhile Scott Carroll doubles down and says, yes it was. – Peter Gurry

We live in horrifying times. Come, Lord Jesus…

A Report From Warsaw

The start of the Eighth Annual RefoRC Conference in Warsaw today was as pleasant as could be. The beautiful location of the White Villa, the good coffee and welcome water, and the pleasant reunion and acquintance of many early modern scholars made the start in Warsaw of the conference a very good one. https://www.reforc.com/eighth-annual-reforc-conference-started-today/

I’m sadly not there.  But at least I’ll see many of the same folk in Philadelphia in August.

The Wright/Peterson Axis of Evil

“Turns out that Jordan Peterson fans and NT Wright fans aren’t that much different from each other. Shocking, I say!” – Esteban Julio Vázquez

That’s because they’re the same people.

Why I Support those Who Kneel

I saw this on NPR and wholly agree-

I stand to honor the promise the flag represents.

You kneel because that promise has been broken.

I stand to affirm my belief that all are created equal, and to fight alongside you for that promise.

You kneel because too few stand with you.

I stand because we can be better.

You kneel to remind us to be better.

I stand to honor all that have fought and died so that we may be free.

You kneel because not all of us are.

I stand because I can.

You kneel for those who can’t.

I stand to defend your right to kneel.

You kneel to defend my right to stand.

I stand because I love this country.

You kneel because you love it too.

James Crossley, Live in Living Color

James remarks

I’m going to try and livestream my St Mary’s conference paper tomorrow at 5.30pm UK time. It’s effectively a summary of the book. The first bit will be more of the same but the second half probably won’t be. In addition to Corbyn and the others, it’ll include what “perversion of Islam” means, why we love to hate the far right, Barrow > you, slagging off the Guardian, and the Bob Crow Brigade.

That So Called First Century Fragment of Mark….

Isn’t from the First Century.  So yet again the claims don’t match the reality.
