The book of Job in the Bible is a very ancient book. That is why it is so amazing that we actually get some consistent names for things mentioned in the book that stay consistent across 4,000 years or so. I’m talking about the names of constellations. We’re going to explore the constellations and astronomy that we get in Job. There are a lot of surprises and some really good poetry.
Believe it or not, there are references to every single planet (or deity that the planet is named after) in Scripture. And we’re going to find them.
Not long ago, Rod Dreher, author of The Benedict Option, and “Live not by lies,” wrote on his American Conservative blog, that there seems to be “something demonic in the air.” He was referring to QAnon, which seems to have burst onto the scene to rival the “Wokeness” that he usually writes and worries about…
This is the fifth and final post in a series. It is also the third post that deals either directly or indirectly with the flood of Noah. You might even think you know a lot about Noah. This post is going to tell you that you don’t know jack-squat about Noah. Here is the strange…
Giants? Yes. Giants. This post is about Giants.
This post is the fourth in a series. It is about “Myths” and the weird parts of scripture. This one is still talking about Noah and the Flood Myths, but it is going to deal with something that you probably didn’t know was a part of the story of Noah. At the end of the last post, I said that we’d talk about “Giants,” and we will, but I’ve discovered that this issue is SO BIG, that we need to break it down into two parts. Therefore, this issues is about the “Sons of God” in Genesis.
This issue is about the “sons of God” in Genesis.
Noah’s Flood just might be the craziest thing we read about in the Old Testament. As I intend to show in this post and the next, it’s not as crazy as you think. Instead, it’s far, FAR crazier than you think. It’s crazy because truth is stranger than fiction, and lots of “fiction” you’ve heard just might be the truth.
This fifth and final post on the “Waters above the Firmament” shows how these “Waters” are actually related to the Magi in Matthew 2, and Isaiah 43, which prophesies about the Magi. I am CONFIDENT that you have never heard this before, and boy are you in for a treat when you read it.
This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament. This post describes how this cosmic geography of these “waters” (mayim) and “the deep” (tehom) is shown again, specifically as it relates to the crossing of the Jordan.
This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament, first mentioned on the second day of creation, which SEEM to exit the entire narrative of the Bible (but which in reality do not). This post is about the next time the word “the deep” (tehom) is used in scripture. The place is in the Exodus out of Egypt.
The purpose of this post is to show how rich the Bible’s metaphorical or symbolic ( or literal?) use of the words “the deep” (tehom) and “the heavens” (shamayim) actually are. By understanding this conceptual framework, you can understand some very deep and complex things that the Bible communicates.
The second day of creation is… …strange, even for those who believe that God created the world out of nothing. That’s what this post is about. We’re going to explore the “Waters above the Firmament.”
