Dining with Shamu
Last month my daughter and I visited Sea World in San Diego, California. (If you want to see a short video clip I made of one of the rides at Sea World, check out this YouTube link.) On the recommendation of my sisters, Kara and I enjoyed “Dining with Shamu.” We had lunch only a few feet away from several killer whales. The lunch was a surprisingly tasty buffet. And the best part, in addition to being so close to the whales, was getting to hear the inside scoop from the trainers, who were also willing to answer any questions we might have.
If you’re ever planning a trip to Sea World, I’d encourage you to save your dollars for a “Dining with Shamu” experience.  It’s not cheap. The cost per person was around $35. But the quality of the food and service, combined with the chance to see the whales from only a few feet away, made the cost worthwhile. Most importantly, my daughter loved it!

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
