One of the benefits of having two professors in the family comes when we read to one another from the answers on the exams we give. For instance: this morning I learned about the story from Luke’s Gospel in which the disciples doubt that Jesus has really come back from death — so they reach out and touch his beard.

Speaking of… My favorite line from an essay this spring was “Jesus saves: whether one is Christian, human, or other.”
Isn’t this what makes marking survivable?
Quite a while back a student provided this answer to a test question:
Identify and discuss the significance of the four “common denominators” (or central concerns) of second-temple Judaism.
(Answer should be things like: monotheism, temple, election / land, covenant / torah.)
Part of the answer on one test:
“Second temple Judeans also believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
Phil, from your set-up I was anticipating, “Half, thirds, quarters, and eighths….”
Thanks for making me nearly spit coffee all over my keyboard!
