So, I’m a week into my “Exploring the New Testament” reading and here are my thoughts. Although the development and fall of Ancient Greece and Rome is extremely interesting (no sarcasm implied), the author of our text has found the cure for insomnia!
So, please pray with me that I retain what I’m “trudging through the mud” to read.
I really am interested in the content, I just don’t understand why scholars have to write as though all their projected readers are doctoral students. History is INTERESTING but is always written so horribly BORING!! Why is that?
So, until I figure out a solution, I will continue trudging through and hopefully gain a better understanding of peoples and places of early Christianity.
