On the 2nd of June this year, an article was uploaded to the BBC which looks at the gender of God. In this post we will be analysing the article and giving you extra information on the topic, to allow you to make your own mine up about the issue.
In this post we won’t be explaining the meaning of Psalm 117, but we will be doing something equally important. The Bible has been translated into hundreds of different languages and is currently being translated into many many more. We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all workers and volunteers who are and have been involved in translating the Bible. Below is a collection of Psalm 117 and some of the languages it has been translated into. I believe that millions of people have been and will be moved by reading the Bible in their own language. I hope you agree with me and acknowledgement of how amazing the Bible is, like this post or post an uplifting comment.
As you can see from the title of this post, in this post we will be analysing Bob Hartman’s favourite psalm; 78. Unlike last weeks post, this poem is written by a man called Asaph. Asaph was a Levite in the court of King David. “A member of the Hebrew tribe of Levi, especially of that part of it which provided assistants to the priests in the worship in the Jewish temple.” – Levite Dictionary Definition. This is a very long Psalm which records the history of Gods people from Egypt until the time of King David. Join us and read more, as we uncover new facts about this widely unknown psalm and understand more at the complicated message behind the poem.
This is a relatively well-known Psalm, however if you look deeper, at the specific wording of the Psalm, you can find out a lot about the time in which this was written. I first found out the background behind this Psalm at Spring Harvest at a sermon on “Sinking in the psalms” by Dave Steel.
The first two stanzas says “I lift up my eyes to the mountains where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” What do you think David is says in this lines at Psalms 121? Read on to find out much more about this Psalm and what it can mean to you and your life.
