So, forget about all the debate about what Jesus looked like. Now you can smell him according to the people at His Essence Candals. How do they know the odor of Jesus? Well they cite Psalm 45:8 which describes a king’s robes having the fragrance of myrrh, aloes and cassia, then they say the passage [...]

The journal Antiquity recently published an article by Thomas E. Levy, Russell B. Adams, Mohammad Najjar, Andreas Hauptmann, James D. Anderson, Baruch Brandl, Mark A. Robinson and Thomas Higham (is that all?) about the Edomites and one of their cemeteries. You can read the entire article in .pdf format here or a brief summary [...]
Howdy! I just read an interesting article by Bill Tammeus called “Theological Illiteracy is Rampant.” He cites Michael J. Vlach, president of Theological Studies.org, who in turn cites Barna, that states that the most widely known Bible verse (75% of adults and teens in the U.S.) is “God helps those who help themselves.” Problem is, [...]

Dude! Scripturizer like totally converts Bible references in posts and comments into hyperlinks to online Bibles. So I can write John 3:17 and Rev 4:7 and II Samuel 3:11-21 and it totally links to these verses. This should come in handy. You can even use the original languages (Hebrew and Greek) at Zhubert.
David Parsons promotes our archaeology section here in his awesome Classics Teachers’ Blog. He even goes so far as to call it “cool.” Thanks so much dude!
Yesterday we submitted the BibleDudes website to MERLOT (the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning Online and Teaching) for peer review. I’ve heard they have quite a backlog, so we’re not exactly holding our breath. Nevertheless, we’re thrilled to be in line, and great sites like MERLOT show how academia is evolving due to the internet.
Yeeeehaaaaawwww! These Goliath Dudes at the Christian Wrestling Federation in Texas are spreading the Gospel with pile drivers and figure four leg locks. Hallelujah! But CWF Dudes . . ., like how should I put this? You seem to be sort of like misinterpreting Jesus’ message, to put it mildly. I don’t recall reading [...]
