Last Post Before Christmas!

As we near the blessed day of Christmas, here's my final round of what's happening around the biblioblogosphere.

First, there is an on-line debate going between Alan Segal, Larry Hurtado and John Kloppenborg entitled The Jesus and the Gospel—What Really Happened?.

Second, the Expository Times has a good article by Helmut Koester on the Apostolic Fathers.

Third, Ben Myers has a series of interesting posts on the Virgin Conception.

Fourth, a new Blog Biblicalia by Kevin Edgecomb is up and running.

I had a good day including the pleasure of delivering the Christmas address to the Dingwall Academy (= High School). My parody of the "Cult of the Jolly Fatman" went down well and I hope I was able to impart to the kids that Jesus, not Santa, is the reason for the season.

Have a blessed and joyous Christmas

Merry Christmas, Mike! I'm just settling into the second day of my holidays here, and it's very nice indeed.

I think I'd rather be in Scotland, though: here in Brisbane, we're expecting a 36-degree-celsius Christmas!

Merry Christmas Dr. Bird!
The weather is very nice in Fort Worth, Texas.

Merry Christmas to you, Dr. Bird, to your nestmate, and to your hatchlings as well!

Thanks for the notice on the blog. I've also just started up the companion email list for the blog, also called biblicalia.
