Coram Deo: Daily Meditations on God’s Presence - Friday, October 24, 2014

The Judgment of Jerusalem

Matthew 24:29–31

Today’s passage reminds us of our need to read each biblical passage according to the type of literature it happens to be. For example, passages that are apocalyptic (symbolic depictions of God’s wrath and vindication) cannot be read as if they are pure historical narrative. While we may disagree on the meaning of the more complex portions of Scripture, let us always read them with a sensitivity to the style of literature they represent.

For further study:

Amos 8:7–10

The Bible in a year:

Jeremiah 14–16

For the weekend:

Jeremiah 17–20
