Some Interesting Links . . .

Links.jpgHere's the scoop on the ESV Study Bible (coming this fall).  It looks great and worth the wait.  There are some outstanding features and many solid contributors--including a number of Westminster Seminary California professors.   (h.t. Justin Taylor)  Click here: Home | ESV Study Bible | Crossway

An Islamic cleric (Yunis al-Astal), who is allied with Hamas, looks forward to the day when Rome (the "Crusader Capital") falls to Islamic conquest.  He says it is just as much Allah's will as the fall of Constantinople.  He thinks it won't be long.  Oh . . . and Jews are apes and pigs.  Yada, Yada.  We may think these rants are kooky (and they are), but this one has been broadcast throughout the Arabic-speaking world.  Click here: - Hamas Cleric Predicts 'Rome Will Be Conquered by Islam' - International News | News of the World | M

Some things should not be made into gigantic walk-through exhibits.  There are a million things I could say at this point, but I will demonstrate my current progress in sanctification and not say another word.  Just check it out.  Click here: Giant 'Walk-In' Colon Teaches About Cancer - Orlando News Story - WKMG Orlando

If Jesus comes to visit you when you are in the hospital, by appearing on the wall, is that law or gospel?  I guess it depends upon whether the drugs you took were legal (prescribed) or consumed before you got there.  Click here: Mestew » Jesus Visits Florida Hospital

Thanks for the link regarding the ESV Study Bible!
Wow, looks like alot of planning was involved to provide what many Study Bibles do not possess.

Here's my question: "What in your opinion, does this mean for the Reformation Study Bible that also employs the ESV text?

As for the Jesus appearance on the wall of the FL hospital?

Not so sure it looked like Jesus; anyone ever spotted that photo we have of Jesus authenticating his actual appearance?

Greeks wanted wisdom, Jews wanted signs...

Even though I am a German and an amillennialist, I have a great deal of respect for the nation of Israel. (But, as Luther says, God is through with the nation of Israel, except for the salvation of individual Jews.)

It is incomprehensible how Israel is even attemping to negotiate peace with a group of people that don't even acknowlege that they (Israel) have a right to exist.

Jesus says in Matthew 10:14, "And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet." The context, of course , is to the twelve apostles being sent out to preach that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (The N.T. era.)

What a horrible, disgraceful religion, that teaches its masses, that if they don't accept your religion, just take out your guns, and bombs, and destroy them. (This religion of peace, really, really, sucks!)

One of the features that the "Spirit of the Reformation" Study Bible (NIV, Zondervan) has that is lacking in the "older" ESV Study Bible and this new one, are the Reformed Confessions (Three Forms and Westminster Standards) in the back with reverse cross-references from the study notes - an invaluable resource to get familiar with the Confessions! I would be really excited if this new ESV had that awesome feature.

Hello Mark,
Yes, that NIV Spirit of the Reformation Study Bible is an awesome study Bible, no doubt.

I was asking folks here if they thought the new study ESV study Bible would mean the end of the Reformation ESV study Bible...

Back to the NIV Spirit of the Reformation Study Bible,.. I love the creeds, confessions but so much wish they were in contemporary language and not the older editions.

For instance the Modern English version of the WCF, WSC are both great updates. I think it ironic that our WCF says Scripture is to be translated into the language of the people.
But evidently we think the Scripture is supposed to be, but not our creeds and confessions.

Your restraint regarding the gigantic colon is admirable!
