    I've been going through a few of the easier books in the Greek New Testament, while adding to my my grammar and vocabulary knowledge with a couple of Mounce's books.

    I'm also under way in an old, 1950s book called A Christian Approach to Philosophy by Warren C. Young.

    Is the genealogy in Gen 5 used typologically?

    Edit- It would be good if we could move this discussion to another thread. I don't wish to clutter this one up.

    Once I get my moderator powers back I can move the relevant posts, or a new thread could be started. Of course, it will likely be taken off topic too.

    ETA: I don't know if Genesis 5 is used typologically, but many other events in Genesis 1-11 are. However, Jude does take the genealogies literally, and pronounces a prophecy from Enoch who was "seventh from Adam". If a prophecy was never actually made, then Jude would contain falsehood.

    I'm sitting on a $100 Amazon gift card right now. It's a good position to be in.

    A friend of mine and I are reading The Pastoral Rule by Pope Gregory. I've appreciated when he discusses how mistakes are made, he talks about both extremes like talking too much or not enough. It also has reminded me that I am not called to be a pastor.

    I'm finally reading The Liberated Gospel, A Comparison of the Gospel of Mark and Greek Tragedy, by Gilbert Bilezikian. It's one of the many books I've wanted to read over the years and never gotten around to it. He was an oft-quoted (but seldom read, I suspect) French scholar of several decades ago. I was surprised to find out that he's now relatively well known for more recently being one of the founders of the megachurch movement. The used copy I acquired happened to belong to Gilbert's brother.

    Some guy on Facebook today was questioning the authenticity of Keener's Christianity because he claimed to have a conversion experience that wasn't purely intellectual and because he's into historical Jesus scholarship.

    OBP, what did you think of the Christian Smith book? It's been on my radar for awhile.
