Preparation

Triad Christian Fellowship is currently doing a Christmas series that peers at Christ through the Psalms. This coming Sunday I have the opportunity to open up scripture in Psalm 89. I’ve been reading through the text in the English Standard Version, The Message, and The New Living Translation. A few supplementary books that I’ve been reading are The Messiah and the Psalms (pp. 139-142) by Richard Belcher Jr. and The Epic of Eden by Sandra Richter. Richter’s unpacking of the OT is simply splendid and her chapter on the “Concept of Covenants”  is worth the whole book. I’m still mashing up the content of chapter 89 with other passages of scripture and look forward to how this message will come together.
