I had such a wonderful day in Cambridge today. I am staying with my very good friends, Paul and Ginny Weston, and their daughter, Anna, who is my god-daughter. Paul is on the faculty of Ridley Hall in Cambridge University so he was able to arrange for me to have a readers card to the Cambridge University Library. While there I researched some early biblical manuscripts, and was able to spend some time with a 15th century miniscule manuscript of the gospels, written and illuminated by hand in Paris around 1491. It was a gift to the University from King George I in 1715. I am working on a presentation on how we got the Bible and why we should have confidence in the text of the Bible, even though many people have lost confidence in the text of the Bible, believing that it is a copy of a copy of a copy, etc.
I had a nice walk around Cambridge taking in the wonderful buildings and lanes and churches and shops. It is a mesmerizing, enchanting place, especially for us from North America who aren’t accustomed to things of such age. Cambridge became a center of learning in the 1200’s and oozes with history, tradition and mystique. Wish you were here. Hope you get to come some day!
signing off with love, prayers and good wishes.
