what’s right and wrong about putting people on pedestals
the Jewish lunar calendar, sabbatical years, and how the Year of Jubilee was brought in, and will be brought in, by Jesus Christ
Christ has a message for us during the Christmas season that reflects his passion for truth at any cost
how Jesus confronted the Pharisees hypocrisy in stages, gently progressing into the boldness and offensive truths they needed to hear
what Jesus was teaching Simon Peter when they had to pay the temple tax and how that relates to Christians today
analyzing why Jesus offended the Jews by not getting his disciples to wash their hands is critical for our learning
why fringes mattered in bible times, why it matters to us, why symbolism mattered to them and us
why Jesus said we need to eat his flesh and drink his blood is explained and connected with significance for our rituals and lives today
we need to cultivate our hatred of sin to serve God from gratitude, and not guilt, so learning about dung in the Bible, and Luke 18:9-14, helps
Leviticus shows high standards symbolically since we don’t have to obey much of the rules, but we have such a problem with our hearts

My Plans for Blogging
My story of forgiveness and healing is quite unrelated to envisioning the Bible world. But since our world is sin and pain infested, I suspect many will want to hear more about my personal experience. I anticipate writing a couple of blogs about this, but mostly I’ll focus on envisioning the Bible world.

Plans for Improved Website:
The following documentary links are gradually going to disappear from here this summer, appearing instead under the menu option “Tour Israel.” There, I’ll cover more introduction and pictures to the areas these links cover.
