This morning I received my results for the exegetical assignment on Micah 1-8, and I was very happy with the result. The marking comments and criticisms are well received; for they will help me improve in future research and dialogue.
In my paper I made the following comment regarding Miriam’s inclusion,
I believe there is more going on here at a deeper level. The fact of previous prophetic omission and her sudden appearance begs the question; “Why?” Is there something deeper going on that perhaps has been traditionally missed?
I then followed through with my proposal and conclusions about why. A marking comment was made in that it was worthy of an article for the APS Journal. Next Thursday I will be speaking with the lecturer about this as well as the possibility of doing a Independent Guided Study elective unit.
