Leslie McFall makes an interesting observation in his _Bibliotheca Sacra_ article, “Did Thiele Overlook Hezekiah’s Coregency?”https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5d/The_Bible_panorama%2C_or_The_Holy_Scriptures_in_picture_and_story_%281891%29_%2814781827461%29.jpgWikimedia >Second Kings 15:30 marks Hoshea’s accession and 2 Kings 17:1 marks the end of his reign. Thiele understood מָלַךּ in 2 Kings 17:1 as “began to reign,” as the Revised Standard Version has consistently translated it 10 times out […]

Hey Joe, here are some peppers. The other one wasn’t hot enough. Record yourself eating one of these, he says. It’ll be fun, he says. So, since I was recording a jackfruit anyway (coming soon!), I decided to take him up on it. Not knowing which pepper was which, I take this little red pointy […]

Dragon Fruit – Amazingly Refreshing and Healthy Cactus Fruit

Hylocereus undatus, called pitaya or pitahaya in some places, and commonly known as dragon fruit, is one of the more unusual looking fruits. Though very popular in Asia, it’s originally from Central America.https://pixabay.com/static/uploads/photo/2013/01/08/01/23/pitahaya-74310_960_720.jpgPixabay It’s amazing how many different fruits there are. Of course, not all of them are edible. But one of the things I […]

Chronology of the Kings of Israel and Judah – Part 5 – Workable, but Challenged

Posted on 26. Sep, 2016 by .

Up to this point we’ve mostly set the playing field and put our pieces in place. We’ve done some minor tweaking to the first overview, and now we’re going to start really refining it. Some scholars, such as Leslie McFall, have studied this topic so intensively that they’ve proposed seasons for specific accessions and co-regencies. […]

Part 4 – La Gonâve, Haiti – A Vision of Regeneration for a Degraded Land and Impoverished People

When the earthquake hit in 2010, it was catastrophic in Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince. The 7.0 was nominal by Chile standards, but Haiti simply had neither the building practices to withstand it nor the infrastructure to deal with the consequences. I met one man, Bourdeau Metelus, who had survived the quake. He had been caught […]

Approaching PAP (Port au Prince Airport), the view out the window wasn’t quite what I expected. You know how when you fly into just about any major city airport, the buildings around the airport tend to be nice, inviting and otherwise business and/or tourist oriented? Not so, Port au Prince. In fact, other than the […]

Jean Rony Toussaint grew up on Chien Content (Happy Dog). You can see him here at his childhood home, where his parents still live. We met his father (Dezil Toussaint) working out in the field as we walked across Happy Dog. Before us stood a man bent from decades of working the land and full […]

The breeze coming over the mountaintop felt wonderfully refreshing after days and nights sweating in the warm humidity in Anse a Galets and the slopes above her. The channel between La Gonâve and the mainland spread out beyond the harbor below us, hazy though beautiful in the midday sun. La Gonâve, the little island off […]

Whatever You Do, Don’t Buy Gold!!! (yet)

Posted on 21. Aug, 2016 by .

Gold is money, right? I mean, while we’re all constantly bombarded with the idea that these funky pieces of paper from THE state approved printer are money, the fact is that they are not. They’re currency, sure. But they’re fiat currency = a centrally controlled and state enforced monopolistic ponzi scheme. Fiat currency does not […]
