#Marginalia Weekly Round-Up #3 [3/8-16/14]

Marginalia is a section of this blog dedicated to (mostly) short reflections, meditations, questions, and difficulties I have while going through my Bible reading plan. I generally post between 1 to 3 of these per day, which can be difficult to keep up with. To aid in helping people engage with these posts, every weekend I post a round-up of all of Marginalia posts that appeared during that week. This list is in biblical canonical order.

Pastors, Purification, & Their People | Nehemiah 12:30

There is an order to pastoring. We’d do well to heed it.

Covenantal Confusion (on my part) | Genesis 6:18

Noah Covenant “versus” Abraham Covenant. Go!

The Saving Call of Christ: you’re already saved | Matthew 9.13

Be who you are.

The God of Chance & Randomness | Genesis 13.14-18

God gave his people some glorious sloppy seconds.

How serious are you about ministering to your people? | Ezra 8.15-18

Yeah, who ministers is pretty important.

Deserts Make You Crazy | Genesis 12:10

They sure do.

The beauty of God’s heart for us | Matthew 8.1-3

For the hurting and the broken.

We are descendants of the Covenant | Acts 3.24-26

What Abraham got? Yeah, it’s ours too.

Law & Grace, Law & Grace | Genesis 12:10

Oh, Lutherans…

Theology “versus” Pastoring | Ezra 7.11

In which certain dichotomies are shown to be false.

Justice, Self-Control, & Judgment| Acts 24.24-25

Paul spends his time walking through some unexpected things.

Resurrection: Matthean Apologetics | Matthew 27.62-66

Some issues never change.

I just don’t get it sometimes | Matthew 24.46-51

Sometimes, this is hard.

Paul must’ve been pretty irritating | Acts 27.21-26

I think I found the original “that guy”.

The Daughters of YHWH | Genesis 12:17

God defends his daughters.

Jesus came from some weird stock | Genesis 19.30-38

A weird random story and a comment exchange about faithful critical scholarship.

Rebekah: The Blessing is the Promise | Genesis 24.60

God doesn’t reserve blessing for the dudes. The Gospel in a verse.

Paul is slow; Acts has gaps| Acts 28.1-11

The passage of time in Acts is sort of odd.

Yep. The Gospels depict Jesus as God. | Matthew 28.1-10

If you needed any more proof.

Luke sure can turn a phrase | Luke 3:19-20

What a good writer.
