Commenting on the Psalms

I love the Psalms.

Sometimes I’m scared to start reading them because I can get so caught up in the message of just one Psalm. It’s amazing the truths that are laying there, just under the surface, for the person willing to dig for them and to get used to interpreting the Psalms.

It’s not just general truths about God you’ll find there. I wonder if the whole message of the New Testament couldn’t be reproduced from prophecies and spiritual statements in the Psalms.

I did another commentary on a Psalm yesterday, Psalm 73.

I wanted to share it with you. Just follow the link.

I also did a shorter one on Isaiah 35:8-10.

About Paul Pavao

I am married, the father of six, and currently the grandfather of two. I run a business, live in a Christian community, teach, and I am learning to disciple others better than I have ever been able to before. I believe God has gifted me to restore proper foundations to the Christian faith. In order to ensure that I do not become a heretic, I read the early church fathers from the second and third centuries. They were around when all the churches founded by the apostles were in unity. I also try to stay honest and open. I argue and discuss these foundational doctrines with others to make sure my teaching really lines up with Scripture. I am encouraged by the fact that the several missionaries and pastors that I know well and admire as holy men love the things I teach. I hope you will be encouraged too. I am indeed tearing up old foundations created by tradition in order to re-establish the foundations found in Scripture and lived on by the churches during their 300 years of unity.

    Britt, I’ve noticed that too. It seems that He quoted more from poetry than He ever did from law.

    Peace to you, too, Britt. It’s always great to hear from you.

    I’ve often wondered the same thing …

    Also interesting how often Jesus quotes from the Psalms, too. Like, A LOT.

    Peace.
