Out of the mouths of children...

I gave my kids a pop history quiz today, and one of the questions was to describe the religion of Rome. Here are some of my favorite answers:

“The Roman religion was very stressing.”

“The Roman reliogn was a fierious and killing reliogn.” (sic)

“Roman religion was really weird because they worshiped gods.”

I’m having a lot of fun doing side research on Roman history—it brings back happy memories of Latin class! I’m realizing how much you need the context of Rome to understand the New Testament, and marveling again at God’s hand in history. How can you be a historian and not believe in the sinfulness of man, and in a God who’s plan spans the centuries?
