From there Elisha went up to Bethel, and while he was on the road, some small boys came out of the town and jeered at him. ‘Hurry up, baldy!’ they shouted. ‘Come on up, baldy!’ He turned round and looked at them; and he cursed them in the name of Yahweh. And two bears came out of the forest and savaged forty-two of the boys. From there he went on to Mount Carmel and then returned to Samaria. (2 Ki. 2:23-25)
And a theological/ exegetical nitwit.
People’s dependence on smartphones and modern technology could bring about the coming of the Antichrist, the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has warned.
The 2019 Annual Karl Barth Conference will be hosted by the Center for Barth Studies from June 16-19, 2019 on the campus of Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, New Jersey. Fifty years from Barth’s own death and on the centenary of the publication of the Römerbrief, the conference takes as its theme, “The Finality of the Gospel: Karl Barth and the Tasks of Eschatology”. The central purpose is to consider how fresh encounters with various aspects of Karl Barth’s dogmatic theology and biblical exegesis might stimulate, inform, shape, and challenge contemporary reflection on the range of eschatological themes in Christian theology. Plenary papers from leading theologians and biblical scholars from North America and Europe will be supplemented by the contributions of other scholars to be offered in two concurrent sessions during the conference.
Plenary Speakers include:
- John Barclay, University of Durham
- Douglas Campbell, Duke University
- Christophe Chalamet, University of Geneva
- Nancy Duff, Princeton Theological Seminary
- Susan Eastman, Duke University
- Beverly Gaventa, Baylor University
- Karen Kilby, University of Durham
- Grant Macaskill, University of Aberdeen
- Kenneth Oakes, Notre Dame University
- Christoph Schwöbel, University of St. Andrews
- Christiane Tietz, University of Zurich
- Philip G. Ziegler, University of Aberdeen

Nach dem nationalsozialistischen Rassegesetz wäre der Herr Christus unfähig und untüchtig, seine eigene Botschaft zu verkündigen und dürfte keine Schule betreten. – K. Steinbauer

Maori Davenport is a senior basketball player at Charles Henderson High School in Troy, Alabama. Committed to Rutgers, she is one of the very best players in the nation. Last summer, Maori played for her country, representing her school and the state of Alabama, on the United States under-18 team in Mexico City. Maori won a gold medal for USA Basketball.
Steve Savarese is the executive director of the Alabama High School Athletic Association. A former high school teacher and coach, Savarese has been the head of the AHSAA for the past dozen years.
In a bizarre case of first impression in Alabama, Maori Davenport was declared ineligible by Savarese at the end of November, effectively ending her high school basketball career. The reason? An administrative error by USA Basketball. That’s it. A clerical error. Nothing more.
This is absurd. This girl has done nothing wrong and she is being unfairly punished. By a white guy. In Alabama. What explanation is there but racism? Read the whole essay and then explain to me what other possible explanation there can be.
