I am well into the Christian scriptures in my push to read the entire Bible in a year. This week, I’m finishing up with The Gospels, and as much as I’ve already read the verses — multiple times, and memorized vast portions of them — the words have a new meaning because I’ve spent time with the Hebrew scriptures. I now understand more of the references from Jesus, and am even more intrigued at people’s inability to believe the signs he and his followers showed them.
The fact that I am so steeped (by virtue of my fundamentalist youth) in Angry God makes the song above — which came over my Pandora feed recently — all that much more delicious. Beyond my own hatefulness, this is still a great song.
This is Election Eve. I hope you’re spending it fruitfully.
