I am doing something different. In the next month (February), I will be somewhere else, among other people than those I’ve been with for the last five years. So, what I’ve been doing, preparing for teaching, will have to change. I won’t have people to teach.
But, through preparing to teach the book of Judges, I have learned more about my Master than I have in previous books. I think I’ve learned more about Him than I did in my study of Luke. Or, it may be more accurate to say what I learned in Luke became much clearer as I studied Judges.
So, I’m going to do something different. I’m going back through Judges. Starting in February, I’m going to complete some gaps in my translation of Judges (chapters 2, 3, and 5). I’m going to complete my study questions (https://whathappenedinthebible.blogspot.com), filling in any gaps. And then I’m going to assemble and edit it all into a study guide for the book of Judges.
I don’t know if it will be in anything approaching a publishable form. That would be nice, but my goal is to drive what I’ve learned about my Master deep into my heart. Others may benefit from it, but I hesitate to make that my goal. I think I have a lot to learn first.
I want to think through all of this, all that my Master has revealed of Himself in His dealings with His obstinate, often ignorant, people. I believe I am they. These obstinate ignorant people are me. And, just as my Master continued to love them, care for them, and rescue them, often from themselves; so He continues to do with me, and, probably, with you.
So, my posts on this site will change. I’m not sure, but I may start a new set of pages, new blog, something that sets off this new compilation of material from both sites. If you follow me, you’ll be forewarned. If you don’t, then consider this foreshadowing.
Blessings upon you, either way.
