one more thing...

I've never read letters to the editor in any U.S. paper that were as amusing as these in the Telegraph. Looking forward to that British wit!

How 'Greek' was Jesus?

Good article by Craig A. Evans on the subject of the recent archaeology and Jesus. Most interesting is the evidence cited which lends more credence to the notion that Galilee was thoroughly Jewish and still not immune to Roman culture. And maybe, quite possibly, Jesus spoke Greek (pdf file).

Plan to run 5 today. Its cooler. Winter weather is slowly creeping in. I see that Birmingham is 9 degrees centigrade (49 F) right now, about 15 degrees cooler than it will be here at 3:oo in the afternoon in the Deep South.

Can AU leapfrog OU? The football gods must make it happen!!!!

Thanks living

text for the day is Luke 17:11-19. unique thought: the 9 Jews would never had been associates of the Samaritan had it not been for their common ailment of leprosy.

I'll be adding updates to my latest research. As it is today, I still can't access my Yahoo mail or geocities stuff to do any editing. So I have to get a batch ready, go to my parent's business, and post it all at once. I hope to have this resolved soon.

Less than 2 months to go until we'll be in the UK. I'm hoping that U.S. policy turns toward strengthening the dollar, though I have no idea what this entails.
