Well, things have finally come to an end this semester. The paper was finished (for the second time!) and I did well in all of my classes. Hopefully, I will begin blogging frequently here very soon once the retail season slows down after Christmas. I miss blogging and am looking forward to getting back into it. By the way, for those of you who are curious, my research paper focused on the theme of Israel's final restoration as it appears in the Prophets, in the mission of the historical Jesus, and Romans 11. In the coming weeks I will probably post a summarized form of the principal observations of that paper. But until then I want to wish everyone a happy holiday.
