Lectures on History of the English Bible

I am teaching a series on the History of the English Bible at the seminary. I'll add the videos as they are completed.

Lecture #1: Introduction to the English Bible

Lecture #2: The Tyndale Bible of 1523

Lecture #3: The Coverdale Bible of 1535





Lectures on New Covenant Theology

At the seminary we are examining New Covenant Theology in our annual Faculty Lecture Series. You can click here for the link to the Introduction to New Convenant Theology that I presented as well as the other lectures in this series.

This lecture was incorporated into the journal article for the series in The Master's Seminary Journal. The article, which was recently high-lighted in Dallas Seminary's journal Bibliotheca Sacra (July-Sept 2008, Vol 165 #659; p. 358), can be accessed by clicking here.



G. K. Chesterton


The G. K. Chesterton Society

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936)is one of my favorite writers and a fascinating personality.

In the latest issue of The Master's Seminary Journal, I wrote a review of the new biography of Chesterton by Ian Ker. Click here to read the review.




Doctor Who


Who is Doctor Who?

My favorite TV program, Doctor Who began in 1963 and will be celebrating it's 50th Anniversary this year.
BBC America's Doctor Who Site




Green Bay Packers


The Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers joined the National Football League in 1921 and is my favorite team and perhaps the most storied teams in NFL history and have won more championships than any other team. It is a non-profit community owned team and I am a part owner.

The Swanson Weather Station
Among the little things that keep me happy is running my own weather station. This below picture is me with my new Davis Instraments Vantage Pro 2 Weather Station. All the current information from the station, along with monthly and yearly history, is below. Just hit the refresh button to update the information ticker. The system brings in new readings every five minutes.

I also write about the weather, mainly the hysterical mythology growing about "global warming." You can read a series a lenghty blog entries I've done on the subject here at The Narnia 3 Blog. (note: because of the blog format the articles appear with "Part Three" at the top so scroll down to the bottom and work you way up from there).

I'm also working on some material on "Weather in the Bible" and examining some of the texts where weather issues or phenomenea are either notable or where a proper understanding of the weather issues are key in the proper interpretation of the text. Here are two weather related articles I wrote for the Eerdman's Bible Dictionary:

EAST WIND (Heb.: qadim): A notable climatic feature of Israel in which powerful winds blow from east to west, negating the normal sea breeze from the Mediterranean. Occurring within a 50 day period in early fall, these winds are known today as khamsin (derived from the Arabic for 50) or sirocco. They are notable for their strength (often 60+ MPH), extremely low humidity (often under 7%), and intensely hot weather (40˚ temperature increases within hours have been recorded). Capable of reducing green crops to dry, brown husks in a single day; they also spawn wild fires. These winds were viewed as an instrament of God’s judgement, being known as “the wind of the LORD” (Is. 59:19; most notably Hos. 13:15). This same weather pattern is noted in Gen. 41:6; Is. 27:8; Jer. 4:11; Luke 12:55; and James 1:11.


NORTHEASTER (Gk: eurakulon): Mentioned only in Acts 27:14, it is a compound word meaning “north and east wind.” Named for the major storm systems which can develop throughout the winter, they are a major concern for mariners on the Mediterranean Sea. Typically these storms blow from the north-northeast (30˚ north of east) and were the reason that shipping virtually ceased in the Roman world from November through February. The great danger was that the wind would either capsize the large-sailed barges or drive ships out of control into the shallows of the Syrtes, the quicksand off the Libyan coast. These winds are known today as the grigale.

We had the first significant snow storm in several years on January 2nd. By the time it was over we had nearly four inches of snow. The melt began the next day and the roses and all the plants survived.
