Blog Update, Return From Break

After a longer break than expected, I'm returning to my Bible blog. I will be posting monthly rather than weekly so that I still have time for studying Hebrew, finishing my last few college classes, and supporting my church family through all the surprises and changes of reopening for services.

During my break, I spent a lot of time in study and in prayer. I read all of the Psalms, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. I came to the conclusion that I need to focus more on my personal and professional development over the next year. I set some new goals for myself. I'm finishing my degree, learning Hebrew, working out and eating healthy, studying my Bible, and also broadening my religious studies to include books omitted from the Bible (ie. the Gospel of Thomas, etc.), as well as the Quran, and other religious texts.

In the next six months, I'm wanting to have finished reading the Prophets, finish the last of my classes for my Humanities degree, start Hebrew classes, meet my health and fitness goals, and upgrade this blog to audio and video posts.

In my next post, I'll be looking at Ecclesiastes, a book of the Bible that openly proclaims its own meaninglessness. In the meantime, I'll leave you with the words of a passage I have found comfort in while getting back in touch with people I haven't seen since the start of the pandemic,

"Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." -Proverbs 27:5-6

Peace be with you.
