    Julie, would you ask whoever manages the web site to change the location there as well so people don’t show up to the wrong place? I updated it at, but people following the link may be confused. Thanks.

    I just read your most interesting article on the genealogy in Matthew.
    Something that came to mind that you are probably familiar with is the St. John\’s Bible project…as I recall, they have a beautiful illumination of the Matthew genealogy
