Yeehaw! It’s Tuesday, and here’s a daily dose of “Round-Up”:
- Andrew Criddle of Hypotyposeis explores the similarities between Christian Sacraments and Mithraic rituals in Justin Martyr: “Sacraments in Mithraism and Early Christianity.” I, for one, have never been impressed by comparisons between mystery cults and early Christianity. Give Criddle’s analysis a read.
- Lingamish continues the schoolin’: “Grasshopper Greek: Letting Go.”
- Will John and I ever disagree? Check out his recent post: “Papa Ratzinger speaks out on Creationism and Evolutionism.”
- Dumbest thing I’ve seen today (link is to Michael Halcomb who also thinks it is ridiculous): “Da Vinci Againci: Superimposed Style.”
- Josh McManaway raises questions about hyper-specialization in the field of New Testament: “New Testament Scholarship.”
- Mark Goodacre calls my attention to a new book from Fortress: “Rethinking ‘The Parting of the Ways.'” In the past this has been a topic of great interest to me. I look forward to finding a copy on my desk somehow.
That’s all for today…until tomorrow!
