Carnival due out tomorrow whenever that is

The March (not the Spring!) ratings for the BS blogs are out - and Dust is number 16 - thank you readers - (Spring is not approaching in Brazil nor in Australia or New Zealand.)

Tomorrow has of course already started in some places especially one who noted the northern um prophecy, where it will be spring in 6 months.  All you northerners - want to wait for spring for another 6 months?

The blogs listed in the BS (that's Biblical Studies by the way) list are mostly English - but you know these days it is perfectly possible to get an impression using Google translate of almost any place in the world - not the nuance - cause we hardly know how to read without imposing our conclusions, but at least an impression.

The prior BS Carnival hosted here 16 months ago was a big hit - almost my number 1 post of all times for volume. The next is due out tomorrow and will post here about 9 pm Pacific time and it will be equally stuffed - but I won't know if it is a hit till later. So stay up late in Eastern North America or very late in Brazil (if you want). Look for it in the early morning in Europe, midday in India, afternoon in Korea and Australia, and evening in New Zealand.

I have shown some discretion in selecting posts - but I wanted a post on every book of the Bible (I did not succeed) and from many languages other than English (partial success) and from parts of the world other than North America and Europe (some success).

  2. Which Hebrew Bible books are you missing?

  3. Hmm, Judges, half of the 12 (I have Hosea, Obadiah, Jonah, Habakkuk, Zechariah, and peripherally Amos), so missing Joel, Micah, Nahum, Zephaniah, Haggai, Malachi, Ezra-Nehemiah, Ruth and Lamentations among the scrolls.


    In the NT - no explicit post on some of Paul - but much on Paul himself. I think the NT is a sufficiency for the most part - Phillip Long blogged through all the Catholic epistles this month.


    If you see something on these missing ones, do let me know and I will try and get it in. 9 hours till scheduled lift-off.

  4. Here's one on Jonah :) http://5minutebible.com/jonah-111-12-underestimating-jonah/

  5. Thank you Tim - Jonah was not missing but I can take 2 on that book anyway. And the playlist is good - like the fact that you've got Obadiah there too - you will see why by morning...

  6. Oh, bother! I'm sorry, I misread the list, too much of a hurry as so often :(

  7. No problem. I've enjoyed the listening. Happy April 1st.

  8. Don't know if it's too late, but in my timezone it's not April yet! This is probably on the very fringe of biblical studies - perhaps "reception history" in a very loose sense: three posts on Jesus in India.

  9. It is an interesting post - perhaps suggest the series to Jim in the next carnival. You are right it is on the fringe and would go under miscellany in my subdivisions. There is an interesting series on John in the carnival as read by a Hindu.


    I know I did schedule the post for 9 PM pacific time, - midnight eastern time but nearly the 2nd in the antipodes!

  10. Alright, thanks! That will give me time to get more writing in. This current carnival is huge - might spend the next month just reading it all!
