the final days of Jesus

It is now in the flow 4:31 PM Thursday late afternoon. It is still gray outside. The sun did come out for a short space of time this afternoon. The sun came out as I was driving home from Grand Rapids. Carol and I decided to leave early for Grand Rapids Airport. Carol said she could sit around the airport just as well sit around the house. At the airport Carol said she could get a bunch of newspapers to read and a cup of coffee. Her plane leaves at 5 o'clock PM this evening. She has an hour and half lay over before flying to Arizona. Carol hopefully will be in Phoenix around 11:30 PM our time. I told her to call me in the morning since I usually go to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I am not a late night owl type of individual.

When we got into Grand Rapids we did visit Baker Book House a Christian bookstore. I bought two books at Baker's for our theological and biblical exegetical library.

"The Final Days Of Jesus" (The Most Important Week Of The Most Important Person Who Ever Lived) by Andreas J. Kostenberger & Justin Taylor With Alexander Stewart

"Acts: An Exegetical Commentary: Introduction And 1:1-2:47" Volume 1 by Craig S. Keener (1038 pages of text)

I got this massive commentary on the Acts of the Apostles Volume 1 50% off its retail price. I have in my library Craig Keener's massive commentary on the Gospel of John and his massive commentary on the Gospel of Matthew also. I love massive biblical commentaries! I remember these words of the Apostle John recorded at the end of his gospel, "And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen." John 21:25.

After Carol and I checked out Baker Book House we drove over to the airport. I dropped off Carol at the airport and then zoomed home. Since being home I have written in my paper diary and have been reading my books. Nothing life saving came in the mail this afternoon. It looks like I am on my own for the next two weeks. I plan to read and study The Book of Acts and see what falls from the sky till Carol comes home next month.

I have been reading these books for devotions this afternoon.

Well, I will close to drift through the rest of the day. There is no way of escape.
