Where the Good News Meets Nerd News...


(noun) informal
- A single-minded expert in a particular field.
- One slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits.

The term "nerd" in this day and age tends to have negative connotations. However, those who are nerds, wear this badge with pride. We are redeeming the term nerd. We are taking it back, admitting that we are experts, intellectuals, and smarty oants. We refuse to apologize for liking toys, video games, and geek culture, and we also just happen to be Christians.

Jesus Himself was singerly obsessed with doing His Fathers will. He was an intellectual and an expert in the law and the prophets. The Bible says in Isa. 53, "He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him." By this definition, we can say that Jesus was by today's standards, a "nerd."

We are in good company...
