How has your summer been? You probably know I love the summer. Personally I wouldn’t mind the hot weather lasting longer. If you have read, or are reading the chronological bible you would know that the summer is the time for readings from the Major and Minor Prophets of the Old Testament. It can take some getting through. Some of the themes are repetitive. There is a lot of focus on the destruction of Jerusalem, the time leading up to it, the reasons for it. There is also a lot of focus on the time after the destruction, and coming to terms with it, including having to live in Babylon for 70 years. There is much judgment in the reading; mostly on Israel.
