Biblical Studies Carnival 184 for June 2021

Veteran BiblioBlogger Jim West served up a healthy helping of snark for the 184th Biblical Studies Carnival: “It’s The ‘Year is Half Over and You Haven’t Done Much With it Yet’ Biblical Studies Carnival.” Jim included a trigger warning, which is nice if you are easily triggered by snark. But if you follow Jim on Twitter, this blog does not seem all that snarky.

Brian Small posted a brief Hebrew Highlights for June.

In less snarky news, Kenson Gonzalez will host next month at Viviendo para Su Gloria. He twitters, @KensonGonzalez, so feel free to offer him a few suggestions as you see excellent Biblical and Theological posts in July.   Brent Niedergall (@BrentNiedergall) will host Carnival 186 (August 2021). After that, I have no volunteers for the rest of the year. if you want to be a part of the Carnival in 2021, contact me via email, plong42@gmail.com or DM on twitter (plong42) to discuss hosting a carnival in 2021.

Biblical Studies Carnival 181 for March 2021

Ben the Amateur Exegete has posted the March Biblical Studies Carnival, thirty links for thirty days in April. Which is cool, even though his carnival covers March, which has 31 days. Maybe Ben has weird knuckles. Maybe the number thirty is an apocalyptic number, symbolic of the state of the blogging world this March. Whatever the reason for thirty, Ben has put together a very nice carnival, with several blogs that are new (to me at least). Head on over and check out the Amateur Exegete’s blog and click all the links.

Biblical Studies Carnival 180 for February 2021

Bob MacDonald posted the 180th edition of the Biblical Studies Carnival at his blog, Dust.  Bob is into numbers, so he opens with a meditation on the number 180: “An abundant number, practical, the sum of two squares, the sum of eight consecutive primes, the years of the days of יִצְחָ֑ק. Half-way round.” It is also the direction of repentance and Isaac’s age when he died, although I am not sure how relevant that is to the carnival. And a fine carnival it is. Bob has gathered the best and brightest from February 2021 into several categories, including (sadly) “In Memoriam.” To keep up with Bob’s research, follow him on twitter @drmacdonald.

Just a bit of self-serving Reading Acts news. I couple of people contacted me this month to ask if I was “okay.” I have gone three weeks without posting anything, so they wondered if I was dead or something. Not really dead, but felt like I was buried. Several “real life” projects piled up on top of each other so that I got out of my daily writing habits. But fret not, I will return to the Matthew series I started before the holidays and I have some work I have been doing on the later chapters of Acts. I have quite a few book reviews to post as well. Meanwhile I have done some behind the scenes work on the blog , indexing and SEO type things. The payoff of that work is that February 2021 nearly tied my highest per day visitor rate ever, nearly double where I was at a year ago. This despite the lowest number of posts since I started blogging.

I thought you were dead
