Spanish 2 – Intro to OT

Vistas (Spanish textbook)SPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — from the moment he walked in, the professor spoke Spanish to us for nearly 45 minutes straight, asking question and having us each answer.  I looked around and everyone seemed calm, while I was clicking my heals to “There’s no place like Spanish 1.”  When he finally spoke English and assured us we’d review over the next few classes, my heartrate dropped.  — I need to start reviewing TODAY.

Reading the Old TestamentINTRO to OLD TESTAMENT – (Fr Michael) — our class size is so big (30+) that we meet in the library.  We covered “Questioning Skills” (Bloom’s Taxonomy), “What is the Bible?”, “Senses of Scripture” and Letio Divina.  It’s all of stuff because it’s a 2.5 hour class only once a week.  Thank goodness the PowerPoint presentation will be available for us, ‘cuz I can’t write very fast.  I asked a question about using paraphrase Bibles, like “The Message” (that Protestants like a lot) and, as I expected, we shouldn’t use them for Scripture study nor Lectio Divina — since it seriously compromises the “literal sense” of Scripture.  — how ironic that Protestants (who claim “sola scriptura“) would use a “paraphrase” Bible as their point of reference.
