Let's party like it's 1999 and we're punk rock

There is a conversation going on over here between a number of biblical authors. I couldn’t be more excited! I especially love that the author of Hebrews is still trying to figure out their own identity along with the rest of us mortals.

Thanks for the pingback, dude. We’re just trying to get the word out that orthodoxy is a very slippery concept.
Fact is, most of us made it into the canon precisely because we were unorthodox is some memorably appropriate fashion. Did you ever notice that the only women who are named in the OT are those that do something unorthodox? Yup. My buddy Lemuel, king of Massa, wrote about the world’s greatest woman. She does it all, including, probably, great sex when she has a migraine and is ten months pregnant. But you will search Prov 31 for her name in vain! On the other hand, those named women like Sarah, Rebekkah, and Rachel, to say nothing of the wise woman of Tekoa, now, they stepped out of line in their own times, but they’re the epitome of righteousness these days.
