Herod the Great’s Tomb Discovered? Ben Witherington weighs in on this curious new discovery. “It must be the year for tombs,” he says.
Allelon. I’ve just become aware of a new website for Christian leaders committed to the misional church. Well worth checking out. (All-LAY-lone is the Greek word for “one another” or “each other.”)
Looking for a Nice, Little House in Orange County?
I recently visited some friends who have a wonderful home in Orange County quite near the beach. But you should see what’s across the street! It’s the so-called Portabello Estate (which even has its own website!) The good news? This home is on the market, with its 22,000 square feet of residence, 8 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, garage area for 16 cars, etc. etc. etc. The view isn’t half bad, either.
The bad news? The owner is asking a mere $75,000,000 for the home, making it one of the most expensive homes in America. But, if you’re lucky, you may be able to bid him down, because the market for $75,000,000 homes isn’t terribly hot right now.
Why is the estate called “Portabello”? Rumor has it that the current owner gave it this name because it looked rather like a portobello mushroom.

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
