In the last chapter of The Epistle to the Hebrews, the author invites his audience into a communal life—a politics—that transgresses political and religious boundaries in order to welcome the world to come, the heavenly city of the Father offered to the church through the way of Jesus.

Women in 1st Century Mediterranean Culture: A Comparison Between Philo of Alexandria and Paul of Tarsus

March 8th, 2006 by Jason · 10 Comments

I haven’t posted in a few weeks, mainly because I’ve been madly working away on a research paper (which always take me a long time) on Philo and Paul’s view of women. It was, by far, one of the most fun papers I’ve gotten to research recently. And though I didn’t plan it this way, […]

Cosmology & Creation

October 21st, 2005 by Jason · 7 Comments

It’s been a while since I posted, with no real excuse other than not having much inspiration or commitment. Anyhow, school has fixed that problem with making writing a requirement once again. I’m putting up a paper I wrote for my Science, Philosophy, and Theology class at Fuller. entitled Cosmology & Creation [PDF]. Here’s the […]
