Don’t disturb me. I am writing an essay for a commentary on Acts. My slice is 10:1 – 13:52 which i see as the hinge of Luke’s account – its where the deep transitions of the Christian church take place – Jew to Gentile, Peter to Paul, Jerusalem to Antioch-Pisidia. One of the themes for the whole book is that of the apostles “wiping the dust off their feet” in protest to the Jews who did not receive their message. What was unique to that transition and what parts of that are played out today?
If you have any strong thoughts, or links to articles that might help me, please let me know. I find it hard to write articles and essays, but easier to write blog posts .. . so i am writing it in my blog editor and pretending its a long post. But that doesn’t mean that it will be blogged here, because it wont.
BTW – did you hear about the Irish lass who came to church pushing a wheelbarrow full of sweet potatoes? Her pastor asked her what they were for. She replied, “Dere fur you . . . yer always complainin’ aboot da common taters!”
