Another Batman comic book review, because even Pastors need a break from time to time from heavy theological reading (And I will be reviewing more now that I’ve been back from my trip and getting back to my routine!).

Tom King.  Batman, Volume 5: Rules of Engagement. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, May 1st 2018. 160 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is volume five of the Batman’s Detective Comics in the New DC Comics’ Rebirth series/era.  This work collects BATMAN #33-37 and BATMAN ANNUAL #2.  I finished this volume less than a month after it was officially released and I read several other Batman titles during the same time though I enjoyed this more than the other two works with one of them being Batman: Detective Comics, Volume 5: A Lonely Place of Living which came about a few weeks earlier than this volume.

I found this news article “Framing food: Stanford study shows that teens heed food rules that prioritize health” which the summarizing description said “Stanford researchers surveyed how adolescents make independent food decisions. They found that when teens have health-oriented food rules at home, they are more likely to eat healthier on their own.”

The first few paragraphs is interesting to read too:

Sometimes people think of Expository Preaching as preaching from the Word of God that is “boring” because it is so heavily based upon the Word of God.  I disagree.  I think there is a difference between exegetical data dumping and expository preaching.

What is something helpful and practical that can help those teaching the Word of God not end up just go on like a run-on vocal Bible commentary?

Patrick Schreiner. The Kingdom of God and the Glory of the Cross.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, March 31st, 2018.  160 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is the fourth book I read from the “Short Studies in Biblical Theology” series published by Crossway.  I have immensely enjoyed the other three volumes that I read from this series and since they were so good I want to eventually read all the works in this series.  This present work explores the theme of “the kingdom of God” in the Bible and is authored by Patrick Schriener.  If the last name jumps out at you that’s because he’s the son of New Testament scholar Thomas R. Schreiner.

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation (Septuagint) of Ephesians 4:17.  Here is my translation:

“PRINCIPLE 17 ‹ ‹→ Τοῦτο →› οὖν λέγω καὶ ‹ μαρτύρομαι › ἐν κυρίῳ › ‹☉
Therefore I say this and testify in the Lord

μηκέτι ὑμᾶς περιπατεῖν
You no longer walk

SUB-POINT καθὼς ‹+ καὶ τὰ ἔθνη +› περιπατεῖ ἐν ματαιότητι τοῦ νοὸς αὐτῶν ☉›”
just as the Gentiles walk in futility of their mind

Here are some observations:
