A Female Christ and Dr Who

A Female Christ and Dr Who

Yesterday, I started the day by joining a discussion that interlocked The Doctor being regenerated as a woman, women priests, and the possibility that if the incarnation happened today this could be a female.

Without any historical justification, The Rev. Dr Paul [Ian’s title has been corrected at his request – the original read ‘Mr’] contends… Continue Reading

Matthew in Slow Motion 16

asking, ‘Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.’ (Matthew 2:2) λέγοντες, Ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ τεχθεὶς βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἰουδαίων εἴδομεν γὰρ αὐτοῦ τὸν ἀστέρα ἐν τῇ ἀνατολῇ, καὶ ἤλθομεν προσκυνῆσαι αὐτῷ ἤλθομεν προσκυνῆσαι αὐτῷ – “we… Continue Reading
