Closing this blog

February 1, 2016

This blog was intended to be a supplement to my Ph.D. research on the “Gospel According to Mark.” However, I want to branch out by writing on subjects beyond Mark’s Gospel and publishing a more accessible blog for students, pastors, and laypersons, one that avoids technical jargon and does not have a title in Koine Greek. 🙂 Thus, I have started a new blog at that will cover a range of topics in the field of biblical studies and religious studies. Thank you to all who have followed the blog here and I hope you will continue to read my online musings over at the new site.
