Singing in the Reign

One of my favourite Roman Catholic blogsites is Singing in the Reign. If only most Protestants had the insights into biblical theology that Michael Barber and Brant Pitre often demonstrate. Two of Michael’s recent posts are particularly illuminating. The one on the Good Samaritans of the Old Testament gives the generally overlooked OT background (2 Chron 28) to Jesus’ story. The other is on Pentecost's "Tongues of Fire and the Heavenly Temple", which is a fine example of the use of Second Temple (intertestamental) literature as the link between the theologies of the OT and the NT.

John,
I've met Michael and Brant in person. These two Catholic guys put many Protestants to shame with their committment to biblical theology and their love of Scripture. They are a remarkable duo!
