Round the Sphere Again



  • This week's Christian Carnival is at Daddypundit. Why not skidaddle over there for lots of good reading?

  • From Real Clear Theology Blog: Exegetical Foundations:
    One of the preliminary activities we must perform before we engage the meaning of the text of Scripure is to determine how the text reads. I'm not here referring to text-critical issues, according to which we determine whether to adopt variant reading A or variant reading B (or, in some cases, C, D, E, F, and G) out of a list of options. What I'm referring to here is learning to read the undisputed text in the way the author wrote it. The original NT writings contained no chapter division, no verse divisions, no punctuation; indeed, no spaces between words.
    Read the rest of the post to see a couple of examples where this lack of punctuation and divisions leads to ambiguity in the text.

  • Remember back when Adrian Warnock was collecting questions for the translators of the ESV? Well, they are beginning to answer them. You'll find a post containing the answers to the first question on Adrian's blog already.

  • I really enjoyed Al Mohler's essay on the church and the challenge of gay marriage in Sex and the Supremacy of Christ, so I'm happy that Tim took took a closer look at that chapter at Challies.com.

  • Love Monergism.com like I do? Then you'll want to read this.

  • This week's most interesting search query: "friend's borrowed shoes OR boots OR pumps OR heels OR sandals OR loafers". What, no sneakers? For reasons understood only in a search engine's brain, this is the page returned in response to that search query. There you'll find the the word "friend's" or "friend" highlighted several times, and the letter "b" highlighted once, but no footwear of any style.
