the disclosure of God's end-time salvation

It is 10:16 AM Sunday morning (Resurrection Sunday). Outside the sun is shining and it is in the low 60's. Existence keeps buzzing by.

I got up this morning around 6:48 AM. When I got up I made a pot of coffee and then I messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I cooked myself breakfast and wrote in my paper diary.

My wife got home from work around 8:39 AM and has gone to bed for the day.

I have no plans for the day. I do not feel like going anywhere today even though I should take our dog Rudy for a walk someplace. The problem is that I do not want to go out into the world. I rather stay here till the sun turns blood red.

I have been reading this morning a book titled, "Key Events In The Life of the Historical Jesus: A Collaborative Exploration of Context and Coherence" Editors Darrell L. Bock & Robert L. Webb. I read in this volume Chapter 5 'Jesus and the Twelve" Scot McKnight.

Yesterday I mainly read from a book titled, "Acts and the Isaianic New Exodus" by David W. Pao. I also read from these books when not watching birds.

"A Theology Of Luke And Acts: God's Promised Program, Realized for All Nations" by Darrell L. Bock

"The Lure Of The Sea: The Discovery of the Seaside 1750-1840" by Alain Corbin

Well I suppose I will close to wait it out. On this Resurrection Sunday I remember these words from First Corinthians, "For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, and then by the twelve" 1 Corinth 15:3-5.

the creation of a new people of God

It is 5:54 PM Sunday evening in the flow of Time. It is 73 degrees this evening and we opened some windows to let in the early evening Spring air. It has been going on seven months since we opened any windows. Maybe Spring has finally sprung?

Carol left a few minutes for Covenant PCA.

I laid down for a nap from 1:58 PM till 4:20 PM today down in the lower level. When I got up Carol was getting up to face her existence. Louisa Mae was baptized today. Caleb, Emily, Josiah, and Hannah were there to witness Mae's baptism.

I spent most of the day sitting in our dining room writing in my paper diary (I take notes when I am reading) and reading from these books.

"Keys Events In The Life of the Historical Jesus" Editors Darrell L. Bock & Robert L. Webb (read in this volume an essay titled, 'Empty Tomb and His Appearances in Jerusalem' by Grant R. Osborne)

"Acts and the Isaianic New Exodus" by David W. Pao

"Paul the Missionary: Realities, Strategies and Methods" by Eckhard J. Schnabel

I have no plans for the evening hours. Tomorrow I have no plans either. Tuesday I once again cover for someone at the library book nook. We are in the last full week of April 2014. We will soon be in May 2014. Our lives keep speeding by!

Well I will close to wait it out.
