Mary, Moms and Mayhem

I thought of it for mother?s day, I really did. "Just a look
at the mother?s in the New Testament" I said one day. Then I thought about Mary (Miriam actually) and started
doing a study on all the Mary?s  in the New Testament (which some
folk like to confuse). But I’m still in the middle of my Romans series and this recent post is killer rough,
while starting to think about Ephesians and worrying about Elisha and Elijah or
just when am I going to finish up Daniel or post something about Wives or get back on dueling with dead men?then I
decided, that I?m nuts. So I?ll post another history of study notes so that you
can take it up and do something with it, which I can not.
