    At the Moore College Revue, we enjoy sending ourselves up. Here’s my contribution this year (2023): a music video with Faculty, students, family and robots.

    Liturgy Song – Moore College Revue 2020

    Here’s a tribute to our online chapel experience in mid-2020 at Moore College, in the full spirit of parody. I wrote it for our Moore College Revue, and had much fun performing it with Jordan Smith and Monique New.

  • Greek or Hebrew?

    A quote from George Athas at Moore College that’s crying out for re-posting: A friend of mine who pastors a congregation told me of a young man in his church who was heading off to study at a theological college. This young man approached my friend for advice on making a choice: should he study…

  • Innasense

    What’s the point of having your own blog if you can’t occasionally share a good old rant? I’ve noticed recently that educated people speaking extemporaneously in public often randomly pepper their discourse with the term, “innasense”.

  • Old Testament Studies Revolutionised

    Newsflash: Old Testament Studies Revolutionised. Exciting new evidence supporting a late dating for the Old Testament book of Daniel has arisen in a curiously unexpected way. It appears that an orthodox fragment of an ancient source underlying Daniel has been preserved by oral tradition to this day amongst a group of Western fundamentalists, who even…

  • Should theological students have a day off?

    I like having Saturday off (normally). I suppose you could try keeping the fourth commandment literally, according to the original instruction. But that would involve downing tools at Sunset on Israel’s Friday (about 2 AM Saturday morning EST) and picking them up again 24 hours later (2 AM Sunday morning). Anything else (e.g. just ‘having…
