Okay, though Quakes go by sense of the meeting and not by vote we still have a tally. Larry votes we bail and move on to the Gospel of Mark. Forrest wants to stick it out with Revelation but will bail if Revelation means he’ll be the only one posting.
I can’t guarantee Forrest won’t be the only one posting. I’ve abstained thus far and Crystal hasn’t said anything. Yet.
I’m heading back into Revelation unless I get an overwhelming response otherwise. I won’t get a chance to post before the weekend likely.
I don’t feel as strongly as Larry that this text is devoid of wisdom. Luther felt the same way about James, James is my fav biblical tome, James started this blog in the first place.
At the same time — I’m really not finding a lot to say. And even Forrest, who does find stuff to say, does so by posting long tracts from commentaries (mostly Ellul) which means those who’ve found the Apocalypse enlightening are is some ways more enlightening than the Apocalypse.
The point however — we’re coming into the pay off. Reading to this point is kinda like buying tickets to an all-you-can-eat rib-fest and ordering a garden salad and leaving.
