Thomas V. Taylor passed away on Saturday, January 17, 2015.
Tom was one of the founding faculty members of Biblical Theological Seminary, where he taught, among other things, church history and Old Testament.
I didn’t know Tom well, but I share a recollection of Tom Taylor in this post from the BTS faculty blog. Tom’s legacy continues in the lives and ministries of the students he taught.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 29,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Here’s my one sentence review — Exodus: Gods and Kings was better than expected, and less weird than Noah.
In the full review, I address two questions, 1) How’d the film deal with the gaps in the story? 2) How’d the film deal with the biblical text? To read the full review, go to BTS’s faculty blog, here.

If you are a Bible geek, and a fan of Gilbert & Sullivan, you will love this (less than 4 minutes).
Truly amazing. Wet your pants funny.
Thanks to Josh Tyra, who arranged it, wrote the modified lyrics, and posted it on youtube, and to Jim West who brought it to my attention.
