Dinner and the Police

For the first time since I’ve been here there are suggestions that protesting will occur within earshot.  So the police are beginning to appear.  So after a very nice dinner I walked around and snapped some photos.  I’ll go out later (not outside the gates of the school but up on the roof) and watch for action.

Stay tuned.

Around this Morning

Cleanup.  I’m not sure how many of these street sweeping folk there are, but it must be in the several hundreds.  And they are out every morning cleaning up the streets, by hand.  They do an amazing job.

And the selfie?  Well it’s just what I do, innit….

Today our seminar turns to Acts and Paul’s letters.  And I need to take another photo of the group.  We’ve had additions.

More anon.

New Testament Introduction

For my NT intro course I’ve been using Ray Brown’s magisterial Intro text but I’ve decided to switch over to LTJ’s intro text (3rd edition).  I think the students will really like it.  If you’ve used it, I’d be very interested in any feedback you’ve gotten from your students.  But keep in mind, mine are incredibly bright and obviously used to superior courses (since many of them have taken me for other course offerings).  😉

The Greek Session Went Very Well…

And ended on a high note- with many questions and much appreciation for the Greek New Testament by all who participated.  Which means it went exactly as planned.

Tomorrow we finish up Paul and Job.  And then I pack up to head home Friday.  It’s been a great two weeks and the students have been superb.

I was interviewed this afternoon, so if that’s posted with an outside link I’ll be sure to pass it along.  I’m sure you’ll be enthralled….

Here are some photos from this early eve.  I found a lovely little spot for dinner.  The chicken and rice was just brilliant.  The best places to eat are the tiny mom and pop restaurants.  Real.  Chinese.  Food.
