Fall 2010

Tomorrow begins my first day of class as an MTS student at Duke Divinity. Thankfully my Talbot degree got some introductory classes out of the way, so unless something changes drastically in the next few days, this looks like my schedule for the Fall semester:

Greek Exegesis of Galatians
Christian Spirituality
Old Testament Interpretation
Elementary Syriac

It's been a while since I started classes at a new school, I'm pretty excited! Wish me luck for the first week.

New school

To all my patient readers, thank you for not deleting me from your blog rolls! In the past month, we packed twice, had three wedding receptions, went on our honeymoon, shipped our cars, moved into a whole new city across the US, so please forgive the month-long silence. Anyway, I'm starting school finally this week and here's my prospective schedule so far:

Greek Exegesis of Mark with Dr. Joel Marcus (waitlisted...)
Greek Exegesis of Galatians with Dr. Susan Eastman
Old Testament Interpretation with Dr. Anathea Portier-Young

For my fourth class, it's still a toss-up I guess depending on what they let me do, but I guess if I can get my way, it might be:

The Septuagint with Dr. Melvin Peters
Elementary Syriac with Dr. Lucas Van Rompay

Some words of appreciation go out to various people I've met through online venues, a few who I don't even know their names/blogs, and one John Anderson who is a Duke-MTS alumnus who helped me from time to time along this whole process. Much appreciation to all of you!

And finally, I also need a job.

From now on, blogging will be from Durham, North Carolina!
