Delay of Game

I think the time has come to suspend blog posts here at Ophelimos.  I’m not going to delete the blog, and I’m not giving up, but I simply do not have time to regularly post the Psalms studies.  Each one of those studies can take me up to three hours to put together. I will […]

Forum Friday

Well, you might not be getting a lot of regular posts here lately, but I can still put up a Forum Friday.  I’d like to say thanks to Eric Christenson, who was way out in front of me by getting his guest response to Psalm 7 ready.  When I actually complete the study for Psalm […]

Forum Friday

We’ve had another down time for posts here at Ophelimos.  Back-to-back busy weeks have left me with little time to research, write, and post the Psalm studies.  I wanted to keep those of you who read regularly updated – I am not cutting back nor am I giving up that facet of Ophelimos.  The posts […]

Time to Check the I.D. – Psalm 7:6-7

Psalm 7:6-7 (For the previous installments in the study on Psalm 7, click here and here).  [1] I don’t remember much from the Iliad and the Odyssey when I read them in high school.  In fact, I remember almost nothing.  My entire knowledge of the plot line, characters, et al, comes from the made-for-TV movie […]

Thinking about Scar and not Aslan – Psalm 7:1-2

Psalm 7:1-2 [1] Lions have performed in a broad spectrum of roles in popular culture.  In movies, television, and literature they have been both the antagonist and protagonist, hero and villain.  Just think of the difference between Scar and Aslan. The lion is also used in a variety of images in the Bible: In Isaiah […]

First Impressions of Psalm 7

Psalm 7 Theme Psalm 7 is bookended by two amazing verses.  “O LORD my God, in you do I take refuge,” is the first half of verse one.  Then, David closes with “I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the LORD, […]

Guest Response to Psalm 6

Today’s response is written by Joshua Skogerboe.  Many of you are already familiar with his work, as I link to it regularly on Forum Fridays.  Aside from being an excellent writer, Josh is a husband, father, seminarian, and Worship Director for Living Hope Church. There are three days that come to mind.  Three of my […]
