Lamentations: The Volatile Voice of Grief
June 25, 2018 by Whitney Woollard
Lamentations isn’t a “feel-good” book. Actually, it’s a total downer. It’s a collection of five laments or “funeral” poems (poems of sorrow and mourning) that give voice to the grief of God’s people in the wake of Jerusalem’s fall and Judah’s demise in 587 BC. The book mourns the day, warned of by the prophets, when God became like an enemy to Israel, giving them over to Babylon because of their chronic disregard for his covenant. 2 Kings 24-25 and Jeremiah 52 give you the facts; Lamentations gives you the emotions, emotions that are raw, honest, dark, and even volatile at times. That’s why this is the book of grief in the Bible.

The Sense of an Ending: What is the real last book of the Old Testament?
May 16, 2018 by Amber Dillon
This week, we are addressing a question that many of you may already be clued in on, but many will not. Ready for it? The Old Testament didn’t originally conclude with the book of Malachi. (What? Say that again?) Turn to any Bible you have right now and look at the table of contents. The last book in the Old Testament is definitely Malachi, but I’ll explain more.
The Land: A Thermometer of Covenantal Faithfulness
May 4, 2018 by Whitney Woollard
The land plays an important role in the Bible. Genesis begins with humans living in the Lord’s presence in a divinely gifted land and Revelation ends with redeemed humans living in the Lord’s presence in a fully renewed land. Everything in between is the development of God’s people in (and out) of God’s land. So we can’t relegate “the land” to the role of scenic background or maps. We need to take “the land” seriously and appreciate its ongoing significance for us today.
Covenants: The Backbone of the Bible
April 4, 2018 by Whitney Woollard
We don’t talk a lot about covenants today. But we should. They’re one of the most important themes in the Bible because they act as the skeletons upon which the entire redemptive story is built. They’re like the backbone of the Bible. From Genesis on, God enters into one formal relationship after another (i.e., covenants) with various humans in order to rescue his world. These divine-human relationships push that narrative forward until it reaches its climax in Jesus. Thus, to tell the story of God redeeming his people through Jesus is to tell the story of God’s covenantal relationship with his people.
