Grateful to the Dead has a post looking at words in the KJV that don’t mean what we think they mean. My favourite:
Conversation (1) way of life, prostate 2 Cor 1:12; Gal 1:13; Eph 2:3; 4:22; Phil 1:27; 1 Tim 4:12; Heb 13:5, 7; Jas 3:13; 1 Pet 1:8; 2:12; 3:1, 2, 16; 2 Pet 2:7; 3:11. (2) life, 1 Pet 1:15. (3) in the way, Ps 37:14; 50:23. (4) citizenship, Phil 3:20. This is another 17th-century word whose modern meaning has taken, in the immortal words of Bugs Bunny, a significant “left turn at Albuquerque.”
News from the Whedonverse: Two Buffy writers, Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt, have sold NBC on a new pilot: Grimm, based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Since it isn’t Fox, I’m assuming that this one will not be bounced around in different time-slots so no one can find it, canceled, and then go on to be a DVD phenomenon.
Luke Johnson, has a great post up about today’s technology and Star Trek:
So, in a few communicative ways, we’ve caught up to the Star Trek universe. But one key ingredient remains: warp-drive! According to Star Trek lore, it’s the warp-drive signature left in space by the first warp-drive engine that attracts the attention of the Vulcans and prompts them to make first contact with the people of Earth, ushering our little planet into a bright future of intergalactic proportions. Much like Kip from Napoleon Dynamite, I must confess that “I love technology,” and the innovations of people like Apple have raised my hopes that one day we’ll find people with pointy ears and bumpy foreheads, and Soong-made androids, and neutral zones, and delta quadrants.
There has been an interesting discussion with several blog posts over at TGC based off an article that was at Christianity Today this past week about Anti-nomianism. Dane Ortlund responded, and now the author of the original article has posted a response back to Dane.
