Forum Friday

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank those who have been reading the blog since I launched Ophelimos in July.  I have thoroughly enjoyed studying the Psalms as well as passing on helpful and interesting articles and blog posts I happen to come across each week. Whether you are regularly reading the Psalms studies, or […]

Safety First – Psalm 4:8

Apologies to those who read Ophelimos regularly.  I had a busy (and fun) weekend and took Saturday and Monday off from blogging.  We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.   Psalm 4:8 (For the previous four installments in this study, click here, here, here, and here) Septuagint Translation 8In peace will I lie down and sleep;             […]

Forum Friday

Trying out a new feature here – Polls! (Oh, the excitement!) Anyway, my question to you all this week is which format do you prefer for the Bible studies here at Ophelimos?  The first two psalms were more in detail but longer posts.  Psalms 3 & 4 were shorter posts, but a little less detailed.  Or […]

Forum Friday

“Forum Friday” is going to be a new (adjusted) feature here at Ophelimos each Friday.  Rather than continue with “Focus Friday”, I decided that “Forum Friday” captures what I’m trying to do with this space a little better.  Plus, it allows me to keep up the alliteration factor, which as a pastor always tickles my fancy.

First Impressions of Psalm 3

In an effort to shorten the posts here at Ophelimos without sacrificing too much Bible study content, I’m trying a new format for the study on Psalm 3.  Instead of having three sections for every group of verses (First Impressions, Insights from the Septuagint, and Law & Gospel), I’m going to write one post as […]

Focus Friday

Well, we’re twelve days and two psalms into the blogging experience.  Since the inception of Ophelimos, it’s been clear that this needs to be a Bible study blog.  It’s also clear that there is still a long way to go to really be improving the content here.  I for one have been blessed by writing […]

Focus Friday

I’ve decided to focus my efforts here at Ophelimos.  This first week of blogging and Bible study has been such a blessing to me that I’ve decided to make the entire focus of the blog on Bible Study.  I originally planned to have some posts of a more general nature, but the need for Bible […]

Getting Started

First of all, what’s up with ophelimos? I chose this name for the blog for a few reasons: It allows me to quote 2 Tim. 3:16, which serves as a reminder of my stance on Scripture: I believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. It reflects my love of the […]
