Remember when we had three pictures of Jesus walking on water? We’ve also had multiple pictures on the sacrifice of Isaac, Daniel in the lion’s den, the Nativity, and a few other topics. Some incidents, like this conversation between Jesus and people who were trying to trick him, attract more attention from artists than other incidents. One thing I’ve been enjoying about the Bible we’re currently using is that it has quite a few paintings of events that we haven’t considered before in our Random Walk studies.
We all have our favorite passages or books of scripture. I like the Gospels and Acts, and in the Old Testament I like Genesis, Exodus, and even Numbers more than, say, Lamentations. My husband and many of my friends like the letters of Paul. My Greek study buddy, as near as I can tell, has the entire book of Luke memorized in both English and Greek because she reads it so often!
But all scripture is important, not just the parts we particularly like! This week, open your Bible and read something different.
