Disciple Bible Study: Week 2, Reading 5

I’m participating in Disciple Bible Study, a 34 week intensive. Every day, we have different readings (except on the seventh day…resting!). I have decided to document my initial noticings from a close reading of the scripture. Well, an attempt at a close reading.

Week 2, Reading 5: Psalm 104, Psalm 150, John 1:1-5

  • 104:1-2 - God is clothed with honor and glory, wrapped in light like a garment.  What a beautiful image.  And a reminder not to take the descriptions of God literally.
  • 104:6-9 - Magic God is showing up.  I meet this God in the children's prayers at detention.
  • 104:15 - wine, oil, and bread.  Sacraments showing up!
  • 104:27 - Ecclastical echoes
  • 150 - Praise!!
  • John 1:1-5 - Life is light of all people (see Psalm 104;1-2)
