Biblical Studies Carnival XLIII

The forty-third biblical studies carnival is up. Pat McCullough has translated The Apocalypse of Eve, which predicted two of my postings this past month: one on Augustinian farting and the other as part of the meme on the five most influential books that have affected the way I read ancient literature, particularly biblical literature.

I am not immediately sure why I am "Jared the Pebble."

My guess is that it has to do with Pebble Beach and golf with Callaway (two Ls) being a golf company.

Maybe that's it. I have been trying to transliterate my name into Hebrew or Greek and see if it resembles something. Perhaps I was over thinking it.

Upon investigation, it appears many of the names were derived from some prophetic understanding of their historical meanings. So, see this on "Callaway".

I knew it was Norman and, therefore, of northern French origin, but I was always told it was a place name and that its original meaning was unknown. Now I know a bit more!
