Gladiator’s Graveyard Discovered: Archeologists have identified a graveyard for Roman gladiators. This is the first such graveyard to be discovered, and reveals much about the lives and deaths of the gladiators. It was found in Ephesus, in modern-day Turkey, which I will be visiting in a couple of months. I will not, however, be wearing my gladiator costume. But I will be on the lookout for Russell Crowe. (HT: The always helpful Smart Christian.)
The Internet Radio Network: Can’t get to an AM radio for your daily dose of Hugh Hewitt, Tammy Bruce, or Dennis Prager, then listen online.
“Vacationing Pastor Lets PowerPoint Lead Service”: Too much Christian seriousness got you down? Then visit Lark News. Where else can you find such stories as: “Nursery Catacombs Idea Flops”?
Proud Papa
Okay, you’ll have to permit me a moment of unapologetic boasting. Last week my daughter won third place in the Orange County Science Fair, Behavioral Science Junior Division. This means she gets to go to the California State Fair later this month. Her project looked at whether people learn better by reading with their eyes or hearing with their ears or both.
Guess which student is my daughter. Not hard, is it? If you’re inclined to think of Orange County as a lily-white enclave, this photo tells another story. My daughter’s class at school, in fact her whole school, reflects a similar mix of people.

Congrats, Rev. Roberts, on your daughter’s achievement. That’s quite an accomplishment!
Kids are a great joy, even if they sometimes bring great pain.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
