Questions at the 11th Hour

Today marks the 11th anniversary of the The Deep End. The common expression “the eleventh hour” comes from the so-called “Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard” found in Matthew 20:1-16, and it has come to mean a final opportunity, or a last-minute chance, or something that happens just before time expires. I am thankful that the Lord has given me the opportunity to continue writing about His Word for 11 years. Only He knows how much longer it will it last, but as of now I am not entertaining any thoughts of slowing down or stopping.

In honor of the anniversary, I am posting the links to a category called “Q and A,” in which I have been posting answers to questions that I have been asked (mostly as the teacher of an adult Sunday School class) over the years. Some of these are questions that are frequently asked by Christians or Bible students, and more detailed and better answers can probably be found by Googling, but I like to think that some of them are more-unusual questions. Thanks for reading!
