  1. I'd love to hear your idea about messianism and Christology. Has anyone not glazed over when you told them? Those people might be able to help you workshop it.

    1. Haha, thanks. To be fair, not everyone glazes over. Some are outright hostile to what I suggest! Perhaps I should just workshop it with NT Pod listeners?!
