Not unexpected but does anyone else find it humorous to read:

"I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah"
The Holy Bible : New Revised Standard Version. 1989. Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers.

and opening the Biblical Things tab of Passage Guide to pictures of:

  • Egyptian pleasure garden
  • Model of Egyptian house
  • Adobe
  • Wigwam
  • House (monarchical period)
  • Blockhouse
  • Houses
  • Hogan
  • Igloo

Now I understand ... Jesus was born in a wigwam; his family fled to Egypt where they took up temporary residence in an igloo; when they returned to Nazareth, Joseph the carpenter found work building blockhouses to protect the Romans from the Judeans... (SMJV Standard MJ Version)

Seriously, it seems as if the screening of images could be improved a bit - important because the images take time to build.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

A horse is a horse, of course, of course;
And no one can talk to a horse, of course --
Unless, of course, that horse is Mr. Ed
