Biblical Studies discussion list

As of yesterday, I will be co-moderating the excellent Biblical Studies discussion list together with the founder, Dr. Jim West.

*Bloated sense of self-importance mode on*

Which means my reign of terror has begun at last.

No pratty stupidity and silly nonsense allowed any more.

The delete button is going to get worn out.

Ruling with an ‘iron hand’ it will be an era retold and whispered around campfires to scare the children.

Which will last until Jim deletes me from membership, of course.

In all honesty, this is my favourite discussion list with numerous great scholars ‘on board’ who know planet loads more than myself. I.e. it is a good way to get involved in various lively discussions, and learn a good deal in the process.

To introduce me, get this, Jim actually said something nice about me! I kid you not! Of course, after Chris Heard later pointed out a certain inconsistency on Jim’s part (as he usually calls me satan, devil, or some variation thereof), he recovered himself with the retort:

‘The devil also knows scripture’

One day, Jim, you will see the light. Then you’ll start avidly reading Wright books and talking about the ‘return from exile’ and such like with all the rest of us.

If from time to time we find ourselves of necessity making use of even our most vicious adversaries to further the cause, then I say we must boldly surge forward. Or, as Luther said to Melanchthon- SIN BOLDLY!!!!!! (But believe more boldly still!).

I believe you'll do a good job (n spite of the thousands and thousands of emails that have questioned my judgement in this matter).


Seriously, welcome aboard and I know you'll do a great job.

Well, it may take satan to control that lot at times.

Seriously, good choice I reckon.

Thanks Jim and James!

I'd appreciate seeing those thousands of e-mails though, Jim. I want to forward them all to junk mail servers with the note: 'I'm interested in Viagra, please inform me of the best deals'

What an active group! I'll probably not follow too close until after my paper crunch, but looks like an great group.

Hi Frank,
It'll really get going on working days
