Oy…

Well, I settled done in the cmputer chair to get to work on the syllabus for the class that starts later this week so naturally I had to begin with procastination of the form of email checking. Generally this is unproductive procrastination because normally there’s nothing there except some sitemeter stats and–when I’m really lucky–an online manuscript database that bls has uncovered… This time, however, there were two interesting sets of items.

1. Raspberry Rabbit has a blog now–do check out the great story about consecrations

2. It appears that the Christian Century is teed-off about the blog posts LZ, Lee at Verbum Ipsm/ThinkingReed, and I wrote a little while back. I didn’t find the writer terribly clear in his criticism of me… The only thing he mentions concerning my post is my comment that the separation of the Jesus of History and the Christ of Faith seems awfully Nestorian to me. If I’m reading him right, he seems to think that I am thereby attempting to separate the “Jewish” Jesus from the “Christian” one. I’m trying to figure out how he would think that…perhaps he’s reacting to Dr. Platypus’s construal of what I wrote. The critic follows up with this great line: “Luke Johnson himself would be aghast that his work is being used here to shear Jesus of his Jewishness.” I find this quite amusing…

Oh well–back to the syllabus.
