If you have ever wondered what a man is, don't ask David. He'll just go off on some tangent about God's majesty and the splendor of his creation which he has for some inscrutable reason entrusted to humanity. Honestly, you're more likely to get a straight answer from Dracula. #biblestudy   #psalms   #worship  
Going by Brueggemann’s classification scheme, this is the first time since Psalm 1 that we’ve seen a psalm of orientation. In this psalm, God’s in his heaven, all’s right with the…

Today on Chocolate Book: Psalm 6 and The Misery Zone. The Zone of Inconsolable Sorrow. The Cry Hole. #biblestudy   #psalms   #sorrow  
Actually, “Sad Zone” is probably too tame. “Misery Zone?” “Zone of Inconsolable Sorrow?” “Cry Hole?” There we go. Welcome to the Cry Hole. Perhaps yo…

Today on Chocolate Book: deciphering the mystery of just who the heck David is addressing Psalm 4 to. A mystery which, I'm sure, keeps you guys up all night. Don't worry, I'm here to help.

Tomorrow on Chocolate Book: a Mint Chocolate Showdown!

#biblestudy   #psalms   #christianity   #chocolate  
David begins this psalm by asking God to respond to his prayer; however, he immediately turns and addresses a group of people who “love what is worthless and aim at deception” (v.2). He…

Today on Chocolate Book: it's good to have a sense of humor when you're the omnipotent creator of the universe who can crush his enemies with a single thought, supporting the Jewish monarchy against all nations who oppose it. #biblestudy   #psalms  
One of my dad’s favorite jokes: “Do you know how to make God laugh? Tell him your plans.” Years later, as I was reading Psalm 2, it hit me: that joke is biblical. …Well, not…

Today I wrap up my "Gospel According to" series on Chocolate Book. What book or topic from the Bible would you like to see me read next? #biblestudy   #gospel   #life   #chocolate  
I think we’re finally ready to wrap up our survey of John. Based on the passages we’ve looked at and the themes of his book, if asked to articulate the gospel in more than a few sentenc…

What is your favorite chocolate flavor? Oh, and some stuff about Lazarus' resurrection too #biblestudy   #gospel   #john   #resurrection   #jesus  
Why does the account of Lazarus’ resurrection only appear in John’s gospel? Of all of Jesus’ deals prior to his own resurrection, it’s probably the biggest; he raised a dude…

In Psalm 7, David apparently makes a petition for God to rescue him from death on the basis of his own righteousness. How does that jibe with grace? Read today's Chocolate Book post and become more confused than you were before. #biblestudy   #psalms   #grace  
In this psalm, as in psalm 5, David urges God to protect him from his enemies and to bring justice to evildoers. However, much like Mitch Hedberg, this time he has taken out the old words and added…

Today on Chocolate Book, I read Psalm 5, ask questions about theodicy, come up with answers that are provisional at best, and deliberately misquote Fight Club. Also: a Mint Chocolate Showdown! Check out all the excitement and theology via this sweet link. #biblestudy   #psalms  
“Does justice never find you? Do the wicked never lose? Is there any honest song to sing besides these blues?” -Switchfoot, “The Blues.” This is a recurring question in Davi…

Today’s passage: Psalm 3 Today’s chocolate: Endangered Species forest mint Biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann has a useful three-category schema for understanding the Psalms. First, ps…

Today on Chocolate Book: Psalm 1, theodicy, and the Tree Guy. #biblestudy   #psalms  
Welcome to the Psalms, everyone. The Psalms are great for daily reading because they’re so bite-sized. The central analogy here is that of a righteous man to a healthy tree, and of a wicked m…

Twofold good news from the Gospel of John in today's Chocolate Book post: Jesus' sacrifice makes up for all our imperfect sacrifices, and the ruler of this world is ruling on borrowed time. Also there's some bit about maybe Philip is a Greek Jew? But that part's not so important. #biblestudy   #gospel   #chocolate  
Today’s passage: John 12:20-32 Jesus has entered Jerusalem by this point. Some Greek Jews are there for the passover, and they ask Philip to take them to Jesus. Fun fact, “Philip”…

Today on Chocolate Book: sheep and shepherd shtuff in John 10. #biblestudy   #jesus   #gospel   #john  
You’ve probably already noticed: the Bible isn’t all ice cream and roller skates. To be honest, sometimes as I read and write for this blog, the chocolate I eat with it is the spoonful …
