I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! I am blogging off for several days to spend some quality time with the family. I'll see you again on Wednesday the 29th.
In the meantime, you can keep up with our daily One Year Bible readings at OneYearBibleOnline.com's December readings page at this link.
Also, for some great commentary on our readings in Zechariah, Revelation, Psalms and Proverbs please take some time to explore the phenomenal www.bible.org at this link. Type a book's name in the Search feature in the upper left nav menu of bible.org and you will find commentaries galore.
Actually, if you are missing this daily blog at all :), please do check out some incredible writing on "Bibliology - The Doctrine of the Written Word" by J. Hampton Keathley, III. J. Hampton Keathley III, Th.M. is a 1966 graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and a former pastor of 28 years. In August of 2001 he was diagnosed with lung cancer and on August 29th, 2002 he went home to be with the Lord.

Concluding Thoughts on Bibliology
I will close out this blog entry with a quick reflection here on A Charlie Brown Christmas. I watched this on DVD a couple of nights ago. I think sometimes many of us wonder the same things that Charlie Brown did during this time of year. "What is the meaning of Christmas?" Well, I'll leave you will Linus' wonderful answer to Charlie and the Peanuts gang straight from Luke 2:8-14 (King James Version):
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
