Ed Komoszewski introduced me to Mike Licona a few years ago. Since then, I have been a Liconaite. His passion for and defense of the central truths of the Christian faith are exemplified not only by his passion for the issue, a love for Christ, and his scholarship, but a committment to honesty and integrity. Below is an ad for Mike’s ministry Risen Jesus. This is a great way to invest in the Kingdom. Here is his ministry plan.

BTW: I have been talking with Mike about blogging with Parchment and Pen. Expect to see more of him really soon!

      I first heard him on Stand To Reason’s podcast. I always enjoy listening when he’s a guest on the show.

      I have benefited greatly from Dr. Licona’s work – both A/V and written. I haven’t yet read his magnum opus on the Resurrection of our Lord and have only recently become aware of the Geisler-v-Licona issue.

      Just a comment that perhaps someone may respond to and educate an unlearned one like myself, in the verses in question in Mt27 and those before it appears that Matthew is using a Hebrew literary construct found in historical narrative, viz. the vav-consecutive (please, no Q intended here, just Matthew’s Jewish background) to tie related chronological events together (of course, kai is so used in the GNT). Does Dr. Licona recognize this, if in fact my observation and interpretation is accurate, and if so, how does he still fit in his apocalyptic imagery view into this, to me at least, obvious historical narrative literary form. Does he also feel that v54 describing the Centurion and others who saw the earthquake, etc. was apocalyptic?

      As that great philosopher of the comic strips, Pogo, said “We have met the enemy and he is us”, cp. Jn13.35, viz. “love”, not public demands to repent (closer to “recant”). Better that this had been a private matter, IMO.

      All that said, I’m going to, after meetings today, order his book on the Resurrection as I am still a supporter of Dr. Licona despite my assembly background being the same as Dr. Geisler (PB). I am also still a supporter of Dr. Geisler. Mr. Patton, I’m enjoying “TTP” very much and am in the Soteriology lectures right now. Thank you, brother, for producing it.

      sincerely yours because of HIM,
      pj aka agrammatos
