There's no way the Wednesday List Lynx was going to miss the 8th Anniversary WLL.

There’s no way the Wednesday List Lynx was going to miss the 8th Anniversary WLL.

Today’s link list coincides exactly with the 8th Anniversary of Thinking Out Loud. But we’ll save that for another space, either the day before — which means you’ve already seen it — or the day after. In any event, we did it up in style today with a boatload of links!

Don’t wait for the next list! Follow Paul W1lk1nson on Twitter.

  2. I wanted to use that lunch verse this week in Happy Monday and just ran out of space. It will make the cut one of these days.

    A couple of thoughts on the Last Supper. 1) Jesus is quoted in Luke 22:15 saying “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.” 2) The synoptic Gospels create a chronology but John’s Gospel does not. The events of Passion week through the resurrection take up half the chapters of the book. John is not interested in developing a narrative or outlining chronology and the events he records cannot be construed to take place in any kind of chronological order.

    • Either way, my faith remains the same. Some people might like to run rabbit trails, though. I want people to see that there are different views circulating, but the link list or the blog doesn’t advocate for positions raised. Just like to get people thinking.

      • One of the arguments made in the article is that the Passover “seder” may not have originated until A.D. 70 or so. In which case Jesus did not have a Passover Seder with his disciples but certainly did take a “Passover meal” which the Jews had been observing since the Exodus from Egypt.

        These technicalities are of minor importance. Of most importance is the symbolism between the Passover lamb and Jesus as the Lamb of God. In both cases the body is broken, the blood is spilt, and God’s judgement passes over the faithful.
