One Year Ago Today in the Life of Bryan Bibb

Posted in Friends, Humor by Jim on 30/10/2015

Bryan was at Chik-Fil-A (because he’s an appreciator of good chicken) and using their wifi to surf.  Naturally, he surfed over here and what did he find?

And it still is dangerous here!  Dangerous, that is, to falsehood and the minions of Satan!  Amen and amen.

Where in The World is Chris Tilling Now?

Posted in Friends, Humor by Jim on 20/10/2015

So anyway here I am, just doing some editing, minding my own business when up in the mail pops this note from Chris Tilling. I’ve edited it- I think you’ll see why momentarily.   Someone wrote Chris thusly:

Hi Chris,

My name is … from … a clearance company in New York working with an Advertising Agency in California.  The Agency found a photo on Instagram (see attached) and would like to use it in some of their Ads.

In searching the web for the owner, I came across the blog post that has your name attached to the photo:

Can you confirm if you own this photo or not? If so, I will send you more information and details about the project. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible so that we make the Agencies deadline.

To which I replied to Chris- BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. The poor kid really is famous! They even want to use photos of ‘him’ at Christmas. Here’s the photo…

It’s Maurice Casey’s Birth-iversary

Posted in Friends by Jim on 18/10/2015

casey_fsToday is the anniversary of Maurice Casey’s birth.

Maurice Casey was one of the best known scholars of the New Testament presently (or more properly, recently) working in the United Kingdom. He was a tireless researcher who devoted his life to a serious and, insofar as this is possible, an independent investigation of the New Testament freed from dogmatic constraints. Or more particularly, to the life of the Historical Jesus.

In the last years of his life Maurice suffered a series of ailments which left him weakened and stymied and yet he persevered manfully through his “valley of the shadow”. As he worked on his final publication (and certainly not knowing that it would be his final publication) he grew progressively weaker, progressively worse. And yet he was so troubled by the rise of the ‘mythicist’ movement that he was determined to see the project through to the end. I’m grateful that he was able to.

He’s worth remembering, on his birthday especially.  I said so last year and I’ll say so next.
