put the class notes away

Some Sundays I have an overwhelming urge to pull out my notes from my Seminary New Testament class and run with them, but I know that isn't an option.  As a preacher, I know that I can incorporate John's use of the cross as an almost throne upon which Jesus was raised in triumph, but I can't just site a text and say it is so - I've got to walk the people through it.

Still between John's raising of Christ like the raising of the serpent, Paul's "saved by grace through faith", and John 3.16 there is a lot of great material in my old notes.

Remind me to keep them where they belong - deep in the recesses of my harddrive.
