When 2011 began we had six bloggers here. We said good-bye to Ishta Kutesa and Robert Jimenez soon thereafter. Since then we have had four but we were approached by a younger blogger about joining us and we decided that we were ready to welcome another. Today, I would like to introduce you to Daniel James Levy.
Daniel has been blogging over at Christ, My Redeemer for a while now. He is near finishing his undergraduate work at Southeastern University. It is his goal to begin an M.DIV after graduation and he wants to do church planting work in the Pentecostal tradition. If anyone has read his blog his academic interest usually revolve around Second Temple Judaism amongst other things.
So please welcome Daniel, our youngest blogger and our first as an undergraduate student! I have asked him to write a post introducing himself tomorrow so he can tell you more about himself at that point.
welcome to the borg young fella!
@Brian: I think Jim’s either misspelling “blog” or he’s making a Star Trek reference. And yay for Second Temple Judaism! I think we would all do well with a little more knowledge of Second Temple Judaism.
@Jeremy: I hope it is a misspelling (though a bad one) because I don’t know anything about Star Trek.
it’s a reference to star trek- the borg- the mechanized collective which absorbs all life forms with which it comes in contact, making them members of a group and thereby forcing their individuality to cease. you know, group blogging. the borg of biblioblogdom. 😉
I refuse to participate in you Sci-Fi mumbo jumbo. 🙂
@Brian and @Jeremy Thanks for the warm welcome, guys. And @Jim, unfortunately I can’t say I know much about Star Trek, but I receive the welcome to the borg, better known as Near Emmaus.
I guess it’s time to pick a cool book out to take a picture with so it’s official.
@Daniel: You’re welcome and yes, it is time to take one of those goofy pictures!
Welcome! You passed the test. 🙂
Another Pente! Welcome Daniel. BTW, is Southeastern where Mark Rutland was president before moving to ORU?
Welcome Daniel! I hope you have some fun.
Thanks again, guys.
Hey Mark, I was able to sit under him for a bit until he left. I really enjoyed being under him. Do you mind if I ask how you’re familiar with Rutland?
“Since then we have had four but we were approached by a younger [guy] about joining us…”
Boy, kinda sounds like a plural marriage, doesn’t it? 😉
Anyway, good to make your (online) acquaintance, Daniel! Look forward to reading your posts.
Jim: I very much appreciate the Star Trek reference. Brian may pretend that he is too good for the sublime sci-fi, but secretly I think he wants to like it.
@Esteban: I hope it is not a marriage! That would be kind of awkward.
Esteban, I can assure you that no marriage is or ever will happen between myself and anybody here. Thanks for the welcome though, brother.
Rutland came here to Adelaide about 3 or 4 times. On his last visit I was fortunate to spend the day with hi and share a meal or two. Great guy, loads of integrity. To be honest I was kind of dispaointed when I heard he went to ORU. I probably wouldn’t agree with him a lot these days but he was the first academic I ever heard speak.
