Herod the Great’s Tomb Discovered? Ben Witherington weighs in on this curious new discovery. “It must be the year for tombs,” he says.

Allelon. I’ve just become aware of a new website for Christian leaders committed to the misional church. Well worth checking out. (All-LAY-lone is the Greek word for “one another” or “each other.”)

Looking for a Nice, Little House in Orange County?

I recently visited some friends who have a wonderful home in Orange County quite near the beach. But you should see what’s across the street! It’s the so-called Portabello Estate (which even has its own website!) The good news? This home is on the market, with its 22,000 square feet of residence, 8 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, garage area for 16 cars, etc. etc. etc. The view isn’t half bad, either.

The bad news? The owner is asking a mere $75,000,000 for the home, making it one of the most expensive homes in America. But, if you’re lucky, you may be able to bid him down, because the market for $75,000,000 homes isn’t terribly hot right now.

Why is the estate called “Portabello”? Rumor has it that the current owner gave it this name because it looked rather like a portobello mushroom.

Topics: Week in Review |


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
