Breaking News

I am in a rush tonight as I am busy packing my bags - we are flying back to England tomorrow. So I sadly don't have time to respond to comments today – I'll get to that Saturday evening.

But now to the real news. Today on the Biblical Studies Discussion List, Dr Jim West, the group's creator and my co-moderator, stunned the world with an amazing statement.

In response to the question as to what the gospels are, Jim West wrote:

"NT Wright is somewhat right"

West himself admits that Wright is correct! Don't believe me? See for yourself here! Of course this is a big turnaround for this self-confessed Wright (peace be upon him) critic. So despite his previous antiWright rants, now that West is starting to see sense and come to a Wright (peace be upon him) mind, I hereby declare West absolved from his past sins. After this theological Damascus Road experience, let us pray that West will turn many others from darkness to light. Surely this is a sign that the rapture is upon us?

You've made a Wrightian mountain out of a Bultmannian molehill. Shame on ya, you vile Brit!

Wright stole the theological bit from Jim West. But he was so dim he didn't pick up the kerymatic bit. It was Jim that was the "righter" of both of them.

I'm sorry Chris, but it can't be a sign of the rapture. Only depressing and gloomy events can occur before the rapture. ;-)

Seyoon Kim famously explored what Paul saw on the Damascus Road and how it influenced his thought. Might I suggest that perhaps Jim saw your dancing Wright gif and that that led to his turnaround? :)

Wright is right? Did I hear that right?

Wright isn't wrong on everything, just some things....

Nothing ironic about declaring this to be a sign of "the rapture" when both Jim's hero Bultmann and your hero Wright deny any such event (for very different reasons), is there?

Jim, repent.

Steph, repent.

Rob, good point you clever sausage..

Brain F, REPENT!

James, that IS what happend I am sure! And truth shone into Jim's blackened heart, the scales fell!
