I went to a small, Christian school, The Master’s College, from 2001 to 2003. In my last semester there, I went to Israel through TMC’s Israel Bible Extension program. I took 4 classes there. My favorite class, Jerusalem Archeology, was taught by Todd Bolen. After over 10 years of teaching there, he finished his last semester this last spring, and moved to Texas to get a Ph.D. at Dallas Theological Seminary.
But before he left, he had managed (I have no idea how) to memorize an entire book of the Bible. He memorized Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus. Near the end of the last semester, he recited it, not monotonously, but quite passionately and deliberately, to that group of students.
I want to encourage you, if you have time, at least give the first segment of the 4 part series a shot. It tells you a) a lot about God, b) a lot about the Bible (obviously), and c) a lot about Todd, who is a great example of the kind of person every Christian should try to be.
