Leithart has a very good observation on the canonical relationship between Acts and Romans.

I handed in my final essay today, which is a huge weight off my mind. I have not enjoyed my essays that much this semester. They have all been well over the word limit (this time I relegated 2600 words to footnotes, something that I got away with last time) and I have had to cut sections that I have put a lot of thought into. I have not been satisfied with any of the finished articles.

I found out about next year’s modules today, which was very interesting. We are only supposed to be doing two modules per semester, but I am thinking of asking for a special dispensation and going for four. I really doubt that I will be allowed to, but I would like the challenge. I have been coasting this semester and I would like to push myself a bit more. If I only go for two modules I won’t be able to keep up my Hebrew. Fergus Kerr is also going to be teaching here next semester and I really want to do that module (or, alternatively, I could see if I would be permitted to write a dissertation with Kerr as my supervisor).

Expect some posts on the authority of the Bible, the homosexuality debate and Christian faith and the ecology in the next few days.
