Good Friday

A poem I wrote, called “Good Friday”:

On a day called Friday;
Which is also called Good–
The God-man hung
On the tree, under curse.
In dereliction, forsaken, he absorbed
Infinite wrath;
Separated, relating
Not as Son
But as Sin;
Spilling amnesty blood,
And rending the curtain.

    Thank you for your article on “expository preaching.” If one was studying any other book, it would not be advisable to pick and choose different sections, and then conclude what the entire book, and author intended. Why should God’s Word be treated any different. The believer needs to know the entire Book to have the best understanding of God’s redemptive purpose.
    If has occured to me that many solid theologians do a great job at exogesis of a passage (historical grammatical, literal interpretation), but the homoletical contempory application then is so diversified. I’m trying to get a handle on how expositors can agree, and yet the application for us is in so much disagreement. Enter in the human factor, with our presuppositions. Even so, I’m wondering if there can be more unity, agreement in our homiletics? If not, it is reassuring if the essential orthodox beliefs are held in agreement.
    I’d like to visit your church when I make a trip down your way.
