What’s Been Gong On

I always hesitate with these kinds of posts because I don’t think anyone should care what I’m up to, but then I like hearing about what others are up to and many of you are my blogging friends.

I’ve been spending a little less time on the Internet and a little more time reading. I’ve also been spending less time blogging. I can imagine how boring my posts are lately. Although if Dr. Jim West liked me then he’s probably mention me and make fun of me and stuff because he’s so mean. Sometimes I think of things I want to write about, like (soft) complementarianism from my point of view, but I know it would be controversial (the subject, not really what I have to say) and that’s too stressful for me.

One thing I used to do a lot of is insert Scripture into a quote, like Calvin on Prayer. That’s always a good exercise.

I also have a few things that I’ve been meaning to put up like some differences in translation in 1 Peter 1 that are really interesting.

Right now I’m halfway through Black’s Greek grammar and I’m spending a lot of time reviewing verbs and other grammar. I think verbs could have been handled a little differently. The chart in the middle of the book is great but he never tells you about it earlier in the book. I’m going to read Mounce’s take on learning them at the end of his book.

I really want to get through Carson’s commentary on John before Christmas. That’s been great. After I read commentaries on Luke and Acts I will have read one commentary for each book of the NT. So I will be ready to answer all your questions.

I’m really looking forward to reading the Old Testament next year. I almost started early. I may read it faster than scheduled. We’ll see.

So for now I may still just be posting some quotes, links, pictures and whatever and making trouble on all of your blogs as usual.

    Maybe I can get some tips from you.

    I see you plan to read OT next year. How you spend your reading time, and how do you read? Do you always have a commentary beside while reading?

    I just wonder.

    I have planned a reading schedule, will read the bible in 4 months, then spend 2 months on one or two books, maybe one from OT and one from NT next two months, then do the same schedule again next 6 months.

    Eph 1:3 GNT Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! For in our union with Christ he has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world.

    Have a great weekend in the glorious grace from our God.

    I don’t think I’m the one to give advice. I’ll be reading it like a read-the-Bible-in-a-year type thing except instead of moving on to the NT which I’ve been concentrating on so much in the last few years, I’m going to keep reading about the OT. I’ll read a commentary on Genesis, a handbook on the Pentateuch and a few other things. If I have a big question about something while I’m reading I may look it up in a commentary, but I mainly want to reacquaint myself and just read.

    Sounds like you have a really nice plan.
