Important New Article on the Septuagint

I’m happy to announce and recommend this article by Ed Glenny: “The Septuagint and Biblical Theology.” I’m even happier that it’s freely accessible to all of you. Ed was my first Bible teacher way back in the day at Bible college. Listeners to the Naked Bible Podcast may recall his name, as I chatted with him on the podcast during last November’s ETS/SBL meetings. Here’s a portion of the Glenny article, drawn from this link (which contains notifications of some other new Septuagint [LXX] work, but those aren’t freely accessible): This article addresses the question: How does the LXX...

Testimonial Regarding Recent Fern and Audrey Work

I’m writing this as vaguely as possible due to privacy interests. The following testimonial comes from someone in the ministry I met during one of my Unseen Realm events. This pastor and his wife needed Fern and Audrey’s help as they are working through survivor / ritual abuse / trauma-based mind programming issues. For what that language (broadly) entails, see here.

The outcome is precisely what we all hope to see. Our arrival at Dr. Xavier’s School for the Gifted (what I fondly call the office of Fern and Audrey) set the tone for our entire stay. Fern and Audrey greeted my wife and I with warm hugs and great hospitality. From the first moment, we felt welcomed and loved. Fern and Audrey have created a safe place for survivors of SRA and TMC to begin to heal and discover their gifts. These wonderful women are truly on the front line, seeking to advance God’s rule and reign by beginning the process of helping move His precious children into the glorious future...

Gender Insanity and a Witless Rabbi

Someone sent me this editorial today from the NYT: “Is God Transgender?” The article is by a rabbi who (intentionally? ignorantly?) thinks that metaphor and the “inconsistencies” of grammatical gender in the Hebrew Bible mean that God is either transgender or doesn’t care about gender distinction. This is utterly absurd. While Dr. Michael Brown has already weighed in on this (with a lot of salient detail from the biblical text), I’d like to add that grammatical gender has nothing to do with “creating” biological gender or endorsing transgenderism. Grammatical gender is an artificial means by which inflected languages (languages that...
