And it’s not even in the list of Top 50 as far as I can see. But it looks so good it could be thought to be a sibling of Vridar at its best.
Articles are well researched, attractively presented, informative, including recommended resources. Their author is
. . . Paul Davidson, a professional Japanese-English translator living and working in Japan. Paul also studies part-time in the Humanities program at the Open University of Japan, with a focus on language, archaeology, and Mediterranean history. At present, biblical studies is purely a personal interest of his.
Of particular interest to me:
- a chart of the chronology of Syria 40 BCE to 70 CE
- a list of “deliberate mistranslations in the NIV”
- scholarly articles on
- the Exodus and plagues of Egypt
- a comparison between the genealogies of Jesus in Luke and Matthew
- allusions to Epimenides in the New Testament
- the Book of Enoch and background to certain NT epistles
- layers of tradition behind the stories of the slaying of Goliath . . .
Paul has others on more current interests, too — such as Readers of the Lost Ark: Following the Literary Trail of an Ancient Religious Symbol
But when you visit Paul’s blog don’t forget Vridar still loves you so don’t desert her completely.
