One of my favorite books of the Bible is the Book of Wisdom – a book that is unfortunately missing in many Protestant Bibles. The second chapter of Wisdom is a detailed prophecy of the Passion of Christ. It is also a remarkable commentary on a worldview that is all too modern, confirming yet again that there is truly nothing new under the sun.

Last night I was exercising and flipping through the channels and saw Mel Gibson on the Jay Leno Show- very disturbing stuff. He joked about having a lot of off-color jokes, he offered up some profanity to quote some girls he ran into while filming in Boston. To top it off he promised Leno that if and when he decides to get married again he would announce it first on Leno’s show.
