Truths and Treasure

In the previous post, “Symmetry and Sanctuary,” we explored some of the unique features of Psalm 119; the synonyms describing God’s word, the acrostic nature of the Psalm based on the twenty two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, actions that one could take as a follower of Christ, and the various pleas and prayers of…

Symmetry and Sanctuary

The longest of the Psalms is also the longest chapter in the Bible.  Psalm 119 stands as the Everest of the entire collection.  Its author is uncertain, but David or Ezra or Daniel are reasonable possibilities.  More than 20 of the 176 verses suggest that it was written under great duress.  The overarching concept though…

The Evolution of Revelation, Conclusion

When you go through Scripture, you discover that the Word of God is going through you.  You see the designs and the connections and the purposes of God evolve and revolve and weave and wind together for you to recognize and respond to the infinite.  Themes and concepts, words and phrases and whole chapters, the…

The Evolution of Revelation, Introduction

Take any book of Scripture to spark your own evolution from reading the revelation of God.  Simply begin to read it from start to finish, creating your own method of discovery as you proceed.  Perhaps begin by underlining or highlighting those verses in each chapter that impact you the most.  As you move through God’s…

Burning Hearts

There is an interesting section of Luke’s gospel that provokes the reader to enter into what is taking place (24:13-32).  Two travelers are on the road to Emmaus which, according to tradition, is about 7 miles northwest of Jerusalem.  The knowledge of Christ’s crucifixion 3 days earlier was known by all in the region, and…

Catena

A catena is a chain of Scriptures strung together as a theme, representing the person, purposes, and/or the promises of God.  When read aloud with dignity, gravity, and meaning, the impact and momentum can be powerful.  You are not rewriting scripture, but the medication, the process of creating a catena, can be deeply worshipful and…

Without Controversy

The way that we know about the person, purposes, and character of God is not through our reasoning but through His self-disclosure.  He has done this expressly and explicitly in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the single most influential person who ever lived. No religion or political system, nor any person of…

Apokalupsis

“The Bible ends with a flourish: vision and song, doom and deliverance, terror and triumph.  The rush of color and sound, image and energy, leaves us reeling.  But if we persist through the initial confusion and read on, we begin to pick up the rhythms, realize the connections, and find ourselves enlisted as participants in…

The Letters

We now come to a part of the Bible known as the epistles, or the letters.  These writings explain and expound on the truths about the person and the work of Jesus Christ, as presented in the gospels, and on the person and work of the Holy Spirit, as seen throughout the book of Acts. …
