Normally I wouldn’t do this, but I saw the word meme and I couldn’t resist. Memes are pieces of information that are transmitted from one mind to another, kind of like genes.
The 123 Rules:
1. Pick up the book nearest you with at least 123 pages. (No cheating!)
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Count the first five sentences.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five other bloggers.
The book closest to me was my Spanish Dictionary, which doesn’t really have sentences on pg 123, so the next nearest is ‘Farewell to God’ by Charles Templeton (again, don’t buy it, it’s crap).
But check the record. Mark’s Gospel does not mention the Ascension. Luke’s Gospel, after a disclaimer stating that he was not an eyewitness but is simply passing on what he has been able to learn from his research, then presumes to quote verbatim not only what Jesus said but entire conversations, including what Jesus’ respondents said.
