The People’s Commentary is bringing biblical commentary back to the people, for the sake of our common life. In each season, a different group of people will provide commentary on one book from the bible through the lens of their relevant lived experiences. We know there is a group of young progressives trying to figure out a way to have faith that doesn't necessarily look like the faith of their parents, and we are making space for regular people — especially marginalized groups and unheard ...

I did get some letters of encouragement and donations, and based on that, I will be continuing the show as long as I know you’re there. Again,…
 
Thoughts Wrapping Up Let’s take a quick look at the end of the the last chapter of Acts. What Paul quoted to the Jewish leaders should have sounded familiar to you if you’ve been with me since the beginning of our year together. He quoted from the book of Isaiah 6:9-10. When God gave that message to Isaiah, it was a message to the Jewish people. It…
 
Thoughts I’m Coming Soon! What does it mean when God repeats Himself in Scripture? It means that God wants us to pay attention…that this is important. Three times in chapter 22, Jesus says, “I’m coming soon!” Soon. What does soon mean to you? To me it means, not much time will go by before it happens. If I have an appointment at 3 o’clock, and it’s…
 
Thoughts As we’ve already discussed on a previous episode, this book can be seen as an allegory about the relationship between Jesus as the bridegroom and the church as the bride. Obviously, discussing all the imagery is far beyond the scope of this podcast, but there are some really good commentaries available if you’re interested in digging deepe…
 
Thoughts What Is Heaven Like? What is your idea of what Heaven is like? What will we be doing? Of course we have no way of really knowing everything, but the Bible gives us some idea of at least part of what life will be like. In the book of Revelation, chapter 5, verse 13 John tells us, “Then I heard all creatures in heaven and on earth and under …
 
Thoughts How Involved Is God? Do you believe that God orders events in the lives of people to accomplish His plans? There are some people who believe that once God finished His work of creation, He stepped away and let events on earth happen on their own. Seems like a foolish notion to me. In Esther 6, we have an example of how God orchestrates the…
 
Thoughts Moses Imagine the bittersweet thrill that it must have been for Moses to have God show him a view of the Promised Land from the top of Mount Nebo! It had to be disappointing not to get to go, but God had already told him, because of his disobedience at Kadesh as told in Numbers chapter 20, so he must have been somewhat used to the idea. Bu…
 
Thoughts Current As Today’s News It’s amazing, isn’t it, how a letter written more than 2,000 years ago sounds so current? We Are Under Attack Jude talks about the importance of standing up for the faith. Never has it more important to do that than it is today, when Christianity is under attack as it has not been in many years, and never, I believe…
 
Thoughts What If? Did you ever look at someone famous who is supremely talented, but is not a believer and think, “Just think of the impact they could have if they would live their life for the Lord?” I have, many times. I was born just about the same time as rock & roll. I remember doo wop music playing on the radio, I remember Little Richard, Jer…
 
Thoughts As we read Revelation and try to understand the prophecies contained in it, like the fall of Babylon and the mark of the beast, it’s natural to try to understand them and put them into a familiar frame of reference. For example, let’s consider the number 666. Throughout history believers have thought that it was Nero to Mohammed to Henry K…
 
Thoughts Literal And/Or Allegorical As I have already mentioned, this book can be read on at least two levels: As just an account of a bride and groom from the purely human level, or as an allegory of the love of Christ for the church. Both interpretations are beautiful, and both have merit. As I was studying it again, in preparation for how to pre…
 
Thoughts Praise the Lord! The last six chapters of the book of Psalms are psalms (songs) of praise. Beginning with Psalm 145, which is the last Psalm attributed to David, and ending with Psalm 150, God is praised. I find that appropriate. Don’t you? Twentieth century theologian James Montgomery Boice said of the final five chapters of Psalms, In th…
 
Thoughts Moses is near the end of his life and he has brought the people to the threshold of the Promised Land. However, because of the disobedience we read about in Numbers 20:7-12, it will not be Moses who leads them in. As a matter of fact, God will not allow him to even set foot in it. But after leading these people for forty years, he doesn’t …
 
Thoughts 3 John is addressed to a man named Gaius. There seem to be several men with this name in the Bible, one of whom was baptized by Paul. We don’t really know anything more specific about this Gaius, except that John considered him a dear friend. John commends Gaius for the good reports he hears about him, and for the fact that he supports tho…
 
Thoughts Much of this chapter is self explanatory, though there are fine points to be learned by deeper study than we typically do here. But one thing I would like to bring out is at the very beginning of the chapter. After Ananias the high priest, in a fit of rage orders that Paul be struck in the mouth and he responds with, “God will strike you, …
 
Thoughts Setting the Scene In chapter 5, the book with the seven seals is introduced. No one in heaven or on the earth was able to open the book or look into it. And John wept. But then one of the elders told him to stop weeping because the Lion from the tribe of Judah (who is Jesus) was able. And then in chapter 6, the first six seals are opened. …
 
Thoughts Chapter 3 shows us snapshots of the wedding ceremony and chapter 4 the wedding night. Much of the language of this book sounds strange to modern ears. We do not speak in metaphors such as “Your hair is like a flock of goats streaming down Mount Gilead. 2Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn sheep coming up from washing, each one havin…
 
Thoughts Make A List As I was reading chapter 145, I began to think of the blessings in my life. Have you ever sat down and made a list of all the blessings in your life? All the good things from your past and from the present, and even your future? It’s a great exercise. You might feel as if there isn’t much to put on your list. Maybe life has bee…
 
Thoughts At the end of it all, Nehemiah’s conscience is clear, but he is disappointed that the people could not fulfill their vows to serve faithfully. And once again, we see that there is nothing new under the sun. We are not better than they were at living a sin-free life. Despite our best intensions, we fail. Truer words were never said: The spi…
 
Thoughts On the Threshold The children of Israel are about to enter into the Promised Land, but God has a message for them through Moses. Over and over again in these chapters we read the word “obey”, or a variation on that command. And in chapter 27, they are instructed that the first thing they are to do when they cross the Jordan river into the …
 
Thoughts A Woman or a Church? 2 John is addressed to a very special woman and her children. Some commentators believe that this “woman” is actually a specific church, and her “children” are the members of the church. In my opinion, whether it is a specific woman or a specific church is not important. The message that John wrote is applicable to eit…
 
Thoughts Let’s talk for a bit about Paul’s going to Jerusalem, even though the Holy Spirit gave messages to Paul and others that imprisonment awaited him there. Some people believe that these were warnings from God that Paul should not go to Jerusalem, and that he was in rebellion when he went. What do you think? Would you go if you were in Paul’s …
 
Thoughts Chapter 1 John is either shown a vision of Heaven, or he is taken there. We can’t really tell from his description. And when he is there, a voice tells him to write down what he sees. When he turns to see who was speaking to him, he sees someone who looked like a son of man. He didn’t know who it was, and no wonder. John says, “He was dres…
 
Thoughts I love each of these Psalms that we read today. David truly loved God with his entire heart, mind and soul, and these Psalms reveal that very clearly in my view. I do have some thoughts I’d like to share with you about Psalm 140 There were times in David’s life when he was pursued by men that literally wanted to kill him. He was slandered.…
 
Thoughts Cheeky? In the New Living Translation, this is how verse 19 reads: “Remember, O my God, all that I have done for these people, and bless me for it.” When I read “…and bless me for it” I raised my eyebrows just a bit. That seems somewhat presumptuous, don’t you think? But then I thought of the prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10: “He was t…
 
Thoughts As I record this episode, beloved, it’s Sunday afternoon. Yesterday the Lovely Lady LeeAnn and I worked on the front yard landscape project literally from sunup to sunset. Among other things, we shoveled and placed nine thousand pounds of gravel. That’s no exaggeration. And yes, LeeAnn did some of the shoveling. I tell you this to say that…
 
Thoughts As in chapters 1-3, there are many great truths taught in today’s chapters. But chapter five, verses 16-18 need a closer look, I think. Let me read it to you again. “If you see another believer committing a sin that doesn’t lead to death, you should pray that God would give that person life. This is true for those who commit sins that don’…

We jump right into the fourth and final chapter of Ruth to discuss colonialism, white supremacy, “discovery,” the malleability of our collective memories, interpersonal conflict, the role of police, restorative justice, To learn more about Maria Chavalan Sut and her story, see the following links: "Undocumented Woman Finds Healing And Support In Sa…
 
This episode focuses on the third chapter of Ruth, but we kick things off by hearing how Maria felt, as an indigenous person in North America, witnessing the Black Lives Matters protestors in Richmond that were going on at the time of recording. This was recorded the day after Christopher Columbus’s statue found its way to the bottom of a lake, and…
