Welcome to The Weekly Nerd! This April 23rd is fun and exciting…or at least as fun and exciting as Tuesdays can be!
Tuesday’s Top Treat:
The Gospel in Titus
I post this article from Crossway regarding the Gospel in Titus, when in all reality, it’s the links to all the various “The Gospel in” articles they have at the bottom. They are great resources to help see the Gospel in various books and genres of Scripture.
A Newcomer’s Take on Disney World
Reading this as someone who has been to Disney World many, many times, this is a great read regarding the reality of how Disney World (and all the other parks). I really enjoyed this perspective, as it’s not often one writes as an adult visiting such an iconic place for the first time.
We Are All Theologians
“We are all responsible before God to know these things truly and rightly, to align our knowledge with the source of truth God has given us in his Word.

I love the insta-pot (instant pot), and this meal sounds amazing.
