Flavius Josephus

I checked out The Life and Works of Flavius Josephus to get more insight into Jesus' world and to catch a few mentions of Him.

I found this today:

"Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was the Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day."

It goes okay.

This math test on Saturday is all that is on my mind lately. I got fractions, ratios and proportions just about nailed. So I'm feeling a bit more confident. :)

I'm sorry I haven't called. Been meaning to. Probably tomorrow?

Peaches sends her love to everyone. She's in heat again. >=(

LOL, Matt! TMI!!!

We're praying for you and sending all our love & confidence in you your way. Have I told you lately how proud we are to call you our friend? You are AWESOME!

No worries on the call. Life gets busy.

Love you, Boo.

Thank you for the prayers, Jamie. I believe you only need to get 28% of the questions right in order to pass. So out of 50 questions, I guess that is 14 I have to get correct? I googled it.

I feel pretty confident about the second part of the test.

You are too good to me. REALLY. Thank you so much for the encouragement and prayers.
