the beginning of classes
Today is the first day of the Spring 2009 semester at Johnson Bible College. I wish all our students a successful and challenging four months. I am blessed to be teaching two sections of Elementary Greek II and one section of Intermediate Greek II (along with my Graduate online courses). Besides my course load I am working on a book on Christian origins and the Parting of the Ways (more later, I hope) and putting the finishing touches on Structuring Early Christian Memory (T&T Clark, hopefully in time for SBL 2009). I'm also taking a Hebrew class here on campus, and I've started working my way through an Attic Greek grammar. So a lot's going on this spring. Here's to propitious beginnings . . .
