THE KIND OF HISTORY GOD WROTE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
“The Old Testament gives clues into the kind of history God is writing. Exodus identifies by name the two Hebrew midwives who helped save Moses’ life, but it does not bother to record the name of the Pharaoh ruling Egypt (an omission that has baffled scholars ever since).
“First Kings grants a total of eight verses to King Omri even though secular historians regard him as one of Israel’s most powerful kings.
“In his own story, God does not seem impressed by size or power or wealth. Faith is what he wants, and the heroes who emerge are heroes of faith, not strength or wealth.”
Philip Yancey, The Bible Jesus Read
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“I long for a faith that is gloriously treacherous…The critical issue today is dullness. We have lost our astonishment. The Good News is no longer good news, it is okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn’t change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore, he changes them into ‘nice people.” Mike Yaconelli, Dangerous Wonder
LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE
“The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.” George Carlin
