Hen Scratches 23-11-07

For those who don’t want to read my post on adam, here are some other items of interest.

Hear Corey Booker on Judaism, a light to the nations. A Thanksgiving Psalm . Faces from SBL. Cyber Psalm 15. Luther on understanding the Word,


Erasmus on understanding the Word,

    If you approach the Scriptures with all humility and with regulated caution, you will perceive that you have been breathed upon by the Holy Will. It will bring about a transformation which is impossible to describe. You will perceive the delights of the Blessed Bridegroom; you will see the riches of Solomon. The hidden treasures of eternal wisdom will be yours.

    Yet I would caution you. The entrance to this abode of wisdom is narrow. The doorway is low, and there is danger in not stopping stooping when you enter.

The Handbook of the Militant Christian.

Update: An terrible typo.

    Erasmus sounds like our יְהוֹשֻׁעַ,(aka our second אָדָם or Ίησους) in translation: “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few”

    Thanks for this post, and the previous on adam.

    “An terrible typo!”

    Was it an awful typo and that didn’t sound right?

    A whole ‘nother topic!

    I love Erasmus.
