Plan for Tomorrow

Macrina
(Look her up if you need to!)


1. Sort out Amos, Isaiah, and Jeremiah.

2. Make a least five more drawings of the map of ancient Biblical lands with their 55 or so features and places, and put Ramoth-Gilead in the correct spot just once.

3. Explain the early debates about Christology, sin, grace, and the sacraments. Remember everything taught to high school students about writing change-over-time history essays.

4. Rememorize (for about the twentieth time) Greek second aorist verb forms. No, you do not want to know what those are. Rememorize (for the tenth time) Greek prepositions and try to remember that "on behalf of" is not the same as "from." (Frankly, I think my professor is thrilled just to see me recognize that a word is a preposition; which one is not so critical.) Memorize (for the first time) the changes in the perfect verb stems. Do not waste time wondering why they change.

5. Try to remember that when Greek sentences are missing words, those words are usually either nouns or some variant of the verb "to be." Yes, something of a problem, to have either the noun or the verb or both missing.

6. Take a long walk. Really long.

7. Go here. Maybe several times.

8. Ay-yep. Finals week.

I Never did get the multiple meanings of each preposition straight by genitive, dative, etc. May you remember everything you know and communicate it well!

I like the new blog template. Methinks it's the product of study avoidance?

Good luck with the Greek and everything else!
