Several interesting links today in my various aggregators
via Pet Enns on authority, The Bible is a paradoxical (and messy and complex and un-untanglable) convergence of divine and human involvement.
via Jim Davila, on gods of the ancient near east Yhwh was written down, and became a more tempestuous, complex, and literary deity. Kemosh was not written down, and experienced no comparable enrichment in his profile.

And three reviews of commentaries on the letter to the Hebrews from Brian Small (we met briefly at the Hebrew conference at St Andrew's in 2006 - and he has concentrated on Hebrews ever since.)

And another related to Hebrews from Ian Paul How did the first Christians ‘worship’?
