What is a "special student?" Well, I guess at Southern Seminary it the label they give to people who have already graduated yet for some reason stick around and keep taking classes (I would like to use a little bus joke here, but am not sure if that is offensive or not). The new semester began today. I am taking a Greek Exegesis class on the book of James, as well as a Hebrew class.
I will also continue to work at my church. I am preaching through the life of David on Sunday mornings along with my senior pastor. And starting this Sunday I am teaching a class on Sunday nights called "The Story of Christianity." It is basically a survey of Christianity from AD 30 to today. So other than Greek and Hebrew, much of my study will be on David and Christian history. If I am still awake at the end of the day, I'll post some of what I learn or think or wonder about these topics here. If I fall asleep pictures of Hope will be the norm, and you will all probably enjoy this blog much more.
Right now I am reading J. N. D. Kelly's Early Christian Doctrines, Bruce Shelley's Church History in Plain Language, Douglas Moo's Commentary on James (Pillar series), and a Catholic commentary on James from the Sacra Pagina series. What are you reading? What classes are you taking or teaching?
