SIGNIFICANT BIBLICAL DISCOVERY

scroll

Here is recent news about a a discovery of an Old Testament scroll (the discovery was actually made in the 1970’s) that has only recently been publicized.  The scroll was burned in a fire around 600 A.D.  Scientists guess the scroll dates to 300 A.D. or earlier.  How they were able to read the contents of a scroll that was burned that long ago is fascinating.  Here are two news articles about the discovery and how scientists accomplished reading the scroll.

THE PEACEABLE KINGDOM – TTU – Oct. 14th

I received the following note from Kerry Wright this past week.  “The Peaceable Kingdom” is a beautiful work.  I was fortunate enough to sing it while I was in college.

I want to invite all of you to the first Lubbock Chorale concert of the season on Friday, October 14th at 7:30 at Texas Tech’s Hemmle Recital Hall . It is the Peaceable Kingdom by Randall Thompson. The text of the concert is entirely from various verses in Isaiah and in particular 11:6 “The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them”.

The entire piece is acapella! And in English! Really fun. . .

Below is a link to the Lubbock Chorale website. Also, if you have time, listen to the Peaceable Kingdom on Spotify or some other app to get a feel for the music and content.

QUOTE(s) of the WEEK

“We can never fully plumb the mystery of what took place on the cross, but it does offer the consolation that God is unwilling to put his creatures through any test that he himself has not endured… Good Friday demonstrates that God has not abandoned us to our pain. The evils and sufferings that afflict our lives are so real and so significant to God that he willed to share them and endure them himself. He too is ‘acquainted with grief.’… And Easter Sunday shows that, in the end, suffering will not triumph.” Philip Yancey
