All Saints Sunday

by hamiltonmj1983

I just wanted to take a brief moment to lift up a prayer of thanks for all of the saints that have gone before us.

While we all know some incredible people in our churches and communities that have passed on, I also want to point out that there are many academics in the field of biblical studies who have enlightened us to the meaning and context of the scriptures, that have also passed on. I won’t take time to name anyone here, because there have been so many, but everyone should know that whenever they open up their Bible, the only way they can read it is because linguists and biblical studies scholars have studied and translated the texts, and this has been going on for hundreds of years.

 

Thank you, saints who have lifted up the scholarship and academic aspect of faith.
