    Dear David:

    Perhaps you’ll think this theology of perfection to be a bit naïve (given within the links above), but it is where I am now. It is based on my years of reflection on the very nature of creativity, perfected states within space-time, and the “perfection scriptures.”

    My most recent work to understand a “key to the inside” — the nature of interiority, prayer, dreams, sleep, the pre-conditions for space and time, and, yes, even scripture — began in 1994 when I became aware that an old mentor had died over a year earlier. That was David Bohm of Birbeck College in London. It was then I realized that nobody really was paying attention to the inside structure of the most basic structures. I re-entered 9th grade geometry about where I had left it in 1961. Over the past 15 years, I have learned a little. I have a long ways to go.

    My brother-in-law, Paul Bryant, formerly of Hawaii and now living in Ball, Louisiana and doing substantial volunteer work with Louisiana College, just introduced me to your work.

    I found Hebrew/Perfection on Google and have enjoyed what I could read there.

    Do you, have you, spent time writing or thinking about the implications of Christ’s perfection as a begetter of space-and-time? Thank you.

    Warmly,

    Bruce

    1. Bruce, thank you for being the first person to comment on my website! As you can probably tell, it is still in the process of being constructed and I have not yet said much about ‘Hebrews and Perfection’. My work was an exegetical and theological examination of the terminology of perfection in Hebrews. I have not spent much time thinking about Christ’s perfection as a begetter of space-and-time, but I do believe that there is an important issue here. Christ’s entry into the sacred space of heaven makes it possible for those whom he perfects to draw near to him in that space by faith now and in a more permanent and intimate way through death and resurrection. Hebrews 12:22-29 has fascinating things to say about worship and the way we ‘on earth’ express our membership of the church ‘in heaven’. Perhaps I should try and write something more on this some day. Meanwhile, can I suggest you look at Matthew Sleeman’s ‘Geography and the Ascension Narrative in Acts’ (SNTS MS147; Cambridge: Cambridge University, 2009). Matthew argues that the understanding of place and space in the narrative of Acts is shaped decisively by Christ’s heavenly location. There are arguments in this book that could be applied to Hebrews.
