After being fried from a nine-hour road trip, I could not find the mental power to write a proper blog this week. Instead, I offer up a short overview of Romans Chapters 1-4. I submitted this essay as an assignment for my New Testament Book of the Bible class. My professor for this course is Dr. Michael Middendorf, who is the author of the new Concordia Publishing House commentary on Romans. Dr. Middendorf’s instruction has been priceless, and I hope this overview is exemplary of that.

The Matrix is one of the most recognizable movie franchises of all time. Not only is the series filled to the brim with action, but it also tackles moral dilemmas, and most importantly the philosophical idea of existence. The basic gist of the series rests on the unseen enslavement and harvesting of humanity by cybernetic beings. This race of machines relies on the electrochemical energy produced by the human mind. In an effort to harness this energy the machines imprison human minds in a virtual reality called the Matrix.

This year upperclassmen at high schools around the country will partake in a new round of SAT testing. The major difference from previous iterations is an emphasis on reading comprehension. Students will be facing a more thorough integration of moderately advanced language including words like anthropology, Madagascar, and femur. Use of proper language is the binding feature of the high school disciplines.

Text messages, status updates, and even blogs focus on distributing raw information rather than making the information compelling or powerful.
