Links I Loved This Week, November 21 2014

1. Could Jesus Have Sinned? by R. C. Sproul Jr.

2. The section of Paradise Lost that Nick Cave got the phrase "red right hand" from. The section of Horace's Odes from which Milton translated "rubente dextera" as "red right hand". The song Red Right Hand by Nick Cave. The Sickbed of Cuchulainn by The Pogues.

3. A 1965 paper from The Evangelical Quarterly on the Christian message of Miguel de Unamuno. He is one to examine when considering resistance to a wicked Christian state.
This Spanish Christ who has never lived, black as the mantle of the earth, lies horizontal and stretchlld out like a . plain, without soul and without hope, with closed eyes facing heaven...The Christ of my land is only earth, earth, earth, earth. 
4. Douglas Wilson objects to Christian ministers abstracting marriage from the state.
