I am glad that SAM and A_POMO are on this site. I always learn things from ya'll.

I own a Scofield Bible. It is a loose leaf edition. I used it for several years but it is no longer usable. The binding mechanism has failed and it is just a bunch of loose pages. Before that I used a Thompson Chain Reference Bible for several years till it wore out. I like to mark Bibles and then when they are no longer usable I miss all those notes, etc.

By the way, there is a Scripture for marking your Bible. Jeremiah 23:18, (KJV of course) says:
"For who has stood in the counsel of the LORD, And has perceived and heard His word? Who has marked His word and heard it?"

More recently I have been using a CJB (Complete Jewish Bible) but it is getting to the point where I'll have to replace it. I hate that when that happens.

I don't know what you you mean by "longest legs" and by that statement.

That longest legs comment is really funny. The way A_POMO talks leaves me no doubt that he lives in California.

Recently read "The Miracle of Passover" by Zola Levitt. He was a Messianic Jew that I used to see on tv once in a while. It is a short book, only 38 pages, but it provides a Jewish perspective on the Passover and the Christian version of the Passover which we call The Lord's Supper or Communion.

I'd like to participate in a Passover Seder. I've heard it is pretty cool.

Regarding the disp 'long legs' . He meant that of all the arguments that he's heard against disp. this one is the one that is most credible, has the most legs. He has his explanation (which I can't remember since I had the flu and was zoning out) but says it's debatable.

I'm reading "The Way of The Shepherd". My husband got it at a Mine Management Seminar. Incredible read.

A PoMo: We had The Passover Seder at our church a couple of years ago. A Jewish Doctor in our town presided over it. It was a great experience. I, selfishly, wish he hadn't retired so he could do it again this year!

...

Look around. This time of year some churches have someone come in and demonstrate the Passover. There is an organization called "Jews for Jesus" that sends representatives to churches to do a Passover demonstration. There are some great things demonstrated. Things that Jewish people have been doing for years and don't even realize what they could signify.
