Back from Israel
— Thursday, January 8th, 2009 —
I’m jet-lagged, grumpy, and weak as a kitten. The whirlwind trip to Israel is now over and I’m back on American soil. I’ll be posting some thoughts here in the days to come, thoughts that grew out of the preaching and teaching I did at the various locales in Galilee, Jerusalem, and points in between.
In the meantime, let me just say how appreciative I am to my guest-bloggers Jim Hamilton, Timothy Paul Jones, and Phillip Bethancourt for keeping Moore to the Point hopping while I was away. I don’t think I could ever have imagined a post on whether or not to preach the superscriptions in the Psalms, but here it was, stirring the pot.
I am also very appreciative to my co-leader on the trip, Dr. Bill Cook, professor of New Testament here in Southern Seminary’s School of Theology. Professor Cook is my former pastor, since I was a member of his church, Ninth and O, until Highview called me to be one of the pastors there. Co-teaching and preaching with Dr. Cook was the highlight of the trip for me.
