Tonight on "The Journey" I interviewed Tim Martin of Beyond Creation Science fame. We dug deep into the book of Mark and it's significance to the covenantal shift that was taking place in the 1st century. This is a "MUST" listen to podcast.
Hope this is as much of a blessing to you as it was to me having participated in the conversation.

Last Sunday – January 24, 2010 – was my birthday. I turned 35 years old, and I celebrated it like an old man: I took a nap.
Some of you chuckle because you know that 35 isn’t really “old.” And some of you – some of you kids and teenagers – chuckle because you can’t even imagine being old like Captain Jeff. “Old age” is a matter of viewpoint. If you’re only as old as you feel then some of us are younger than our years and others are far older than our years.
For a couple of weeks I have been selfishly indulging in reading what I think is one of the best books I've read in the past year, Tom Holland's book Contours of Pauline Theology, A Radical New Survey of the Influences on Paul's Biblical Writings. The book is a general overview of primarily the relationship New Testament has with the Old Testament in Paul's eyes. Is the NT a wholesale remaking of what Paul knew to be Scripture, or simply a natural addition, Holland would suggest, an actual continuation of the OT itself.

I was born with glaucoma, an eye disease that can result in blindness that typically only afflicts the elderly. I read once that only 1 in 100,000 infants have the propensity to be born with glaucoma. Pretty slim odds, to be sure. Still, I was born with it. When the genes and chromosomes of my parents joined forces the resulting union contained a blight, and that blight nearly left me blind.
