Kingdom Class Preparation

Not too much time to blog today.

However, I am re-reading Lee Camp's Mere Discipleship in preparation for the class on the Kingdom of God that I'm teaching this summer as I will be doing with Brian McLaren's The Secret Message of Jesus, but probably not before the class starts in June. I'm also looking at how the Kingdom was foreshadowed in the Old Testament, as well as brushing up on the intertestamental times, because I'm convinced that people's expectations about the Kingdom in Jesus' time were greatly influenced by the Maccabees and the Hasmonean dynasty.

But more on all of that some other time. Hope you have a good Monday.

Phil, for your class you absolutely must get N.T. Wright's The Challenge of Jesus. Essential.

Maybe I can get motivated to read Mere Discipleship. It looks great, I just keep putting it off...
