Wendy . . . I swear . . . if you hadn't become a scientist . . . a Christian one at that . . . surely you would have wound up as an author of note!!!

This is informative in a breezily delightful style and as is this moment in time . . . inspiring . . . in other words . . . it's a bases loaded home run!!!

6 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 4 PrayingPraying

Comments: Unfortunately, it's not a home run and a good of example of the dictum that cobbler should stick to his last. Wendy has got her Herods mixed up. It's very easy, they are a difficult family to follow. Herod the Great lasted all the way through to 4BC.

Very interesting commentary, Wendy.  I didn't realize, how the Magi's ( homeland) history tied in with Herod and his dislike of them.


God Bless,

Hi CorinKeiler Lloyd. I actually do know which Herod is which, but I did have them mixed up here, for which I apologize.   All I can say is that my daughters, both away from home for the first time for the leadup to Christmas, called me at least 5 times apiece while I was trying to finish this up Monday night, and obviously scrambled my brains (or at least my ability to concentrate).  So thanks for pointing that out, and I will fix it.

Whatever Herod it was, however, the point still stands that when we get ourselves a little backstory a lot of the Bible makes a lot more sense.  And it gets way more interesting, too.
