Biblical Studies Carnival 147 (May 2018)

Typical Bloggers getting ready for the Carnival

Tim Bulkeley hosted the carnival on his 5 Minute Bible podcast page. Tim featured biblical and theological podcasts, although his hope bloggers would all convert to podcasts for the month (or at least once) did not materialize. Jim West explained How I Became Me… A Horrifying Video and time interviewed Bob MacDonald on his fascination with biblical languages and music. So head over to Tim’s 5 Minute Bible and check out his Biblical Studies Carnival. As most postcasters and youtubers say, be sure to click subscribe.

In other blogging news, Brian Small posted a few Hebrews Highlights on POLUMEROS KAI POLUTROPOS for May. If you use FlipBoard to read blogs, consider following my Biblical Studies magazine. The Web-based version is good, but FlipBoard is an essential app for your iOS device. I use it on my iPad for news and other special interests (including biblioblogs). If you are looking for a more wild biblical studies experience, stop in at r/AcademicBiblical or  r/AskBibleScholars at Reddit. Reddit can be a scary place, but these two subreddits are often quite good for academic discussions (trolls are quickly moderated out of existence).

I do not have a host for June (due July 1) or August (due Sept 1). I plan on covering June unless someone steps up, but I would really like to cover August and October through the end of the year. Karen R. Keen (@Keen_KR) is hosting the July 2018 (Due August 1) carnival. She is taking a little time away from finishing her doctoral dissertation on Israelite ethics and violence in the Old Testament at at Marquette University.

October through December 2018 is still still open, so feel free to volunteer for the fall months as well.  PLEASE email me  (plong42 at or direct message on Twitter (@plong42) to volunteer. You can also leave a comment here with your contact info and I will get back to you. Do not make me beg….

You can also review older carnivals by browsing this tag. Follow me on twitter (@plong42) if you are into that sort of thing.
