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
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.

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.
