A test to see if the blogger changes are still ballsing up my blog

A clever sentence.

Richard Bauckham’s new webpage

And it comes with a variety of features: articles, sermons, pics, etc.


P.S. I just read this chestnut in one of his sermons:

"The doctrine of the Trinity takes us into the mystery of who God is, but it does not explain or dispel the mystery" (Sermon on the Trinity)

*Chris cuts and pastes this into a future sermon*

Help! Blogger are going to shut me down!

Being the quick cookie I am, I only just realised that Blogger are closing down ftp webhosting blog support on the 1st of May. That means, this blog will no longer function!


While I have been away from blogging for a while, I was planning to get back into things this spring, so I'm not quite sure what to do. I would prefer to keep my blog here, and have all my old posts online (with comments) – perhaps I could use another programme like Wordpress, but that doesn't support personal domain publishing, nor will comments export over.

Any suggestions?

A present to myself

I promised myself for a long time, that upon completion of my PhD I would treat myself to a really good espresso machine. After weeks of research, I decided to take the plunge (not the sort of thing I easily do). Behold, my new Bugatti Diva:

In my excitement I made myself three delicious espressos for myself before work, today. So I was just a bit jittery giving the early morning lecture on NT Greek! I have tried a couple with foamed milk, but I am yet to get the hang of this new steam foam system – the jet is much stronger than my old pump espresso. I'm poorer now for sure, but heck, I'm loving my espresso shots like never before.

Lost Jewish tribe found in Zimbabwe?

So claims the BBC webpage!

"It may sound like another myth of a lost tribe of Israel, but British scientists have carried out DNA tests which confirm their Semitic origin"

By natural inclination, I'm always suspicious about such stories.
