King David & His Curiously, Perfect Heart
Worth the read:
Why we shouldn’t concretely use archaeological evidence as a Christian apologetic, but why it can also be effective: In many archaeological circles, there has been much debate that there is no hard proof of any archaeological evidence of King David. And if he was truly a king, he probably wasn’t what the Bible made him out to be. Most of this is liberal thought, but I can’t say I blame an unbelieving and lost archaeologist for what he can’t prove. I wouldn’t read the entire article, but the first couple pages should suffice if interested. By the way, B.C.E. means, “Before Common Era” as C.E. refers to “Common Era”, replacing “Before Christ” and “Anno Domini”…and many conservatives view it as another evangelical loss pulled away by liberal politicking.

Speaking of the man after God’s own heart…here’s an old clip from Perfect Heart.
Worth the watch:
DBM recently broke down a portion of the saga from the “Million Dollar Quartet”. Funderburk, Shipley, and Stice were mostly the aim of conversation at that point in time (that I remember). But baritone Mark Lanier, is featured on this one. He didn’t have the range of other past and current baritones, but when in his comfort zone, he had a very quality voice and never seemed to approach more than what was needed. He was one of the best in the business, and today he goes vastly unnoticed, as most baritones do. Baritones are paid to blend. He’ll play a part in another post in weeks to come.
But in this particular video, Shephard is at tenor, Shipley’s hair is awesome and untouchable, and the crowd seems to clap on the 1/3. Isn’t that odd…
