Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Update: David Trobish argues for 1 Corinthians to be three smaller letters* Therefore my list now reads: 1: 1 Corinthians 1:1-4:21 2: 1 Corinthians 5:1-6:11 3: 1 Corinthians 6:12-16:24 4: 2 Corinthians 1:1-2:13 and 7:5-16. 5: 2 Corinthians 2:14-6:13 and 7:2-4. With 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 as a possi...

That's it by gum! I'm getting back on that time machine project just as soon as I finish my tea!

Well, maybe do some laundry first. :p
Getting the time machine up and running will give you all the time in the world to do laundry. :)

Thank you Ben. :thumbup:
