"Thank you, SWAT Team, for the beautiful Get Well cards. Sometimes, after you come home from the hospital, you have days that you feel good and some days that you feel bad. The day I received your cards was a bad day for me, but when I opened your cards, my day changed to a good day. God knew I needed something to cheer me up, and He knew the cards would do it.

Old Testament Imagery

ot

Many, if not most, churchgoers struggle reading the Old Testament (OT). It has all kind of strange places, people, customs, rules, worship, etc. While it takes a lot of study to really grasp the OT, one of the things that will help you is to understand the perspective of OT writers. About 2/3 of the OT is written in poetry. While Hebrew poetry was very different from our own, one thing they both have in common is imagery. Poetry is all about creating images with words. When you read the OT, look for the image the writer was trying to describe. That’s why the OT doesn’t tell us God is big, … [Read more...]
