preaching the psalms

Started the intense-mode “Psalms” course today. It’s been an overview more than anything else. The pre-reading I’ve done for the course has put me in good stead to be able to follow what’s going on, though occasionally there will be mention of something in Hebrew (kindly transliterated into English characters) which reminds me of the depths that lurk beneath my limited understanding.

A couple of quotes from the lecturer that I thought were worth sharing.

If you’re doing your scholarly study in a non-devotional way, there’s something wrong with your scholarly study.

We can get accurate and adequate knowledge of God through Scripture, but not comprehensive knowledge of God.

  1. enjoy the week – really wanted to do the intensive (in Melb) myself but it wasn’t going to happen BEFORE life happened – certainly not going to after!
