Q…

4 Aug

Having spent 2018 posting my progress reading the Bible in one year (for the first time), I am taking the liberty of sharing several new to me Biblical subjects brought to my attention by Qanons.

 

Many or most messages on the Q board on 8chan have multiple meanings.  For example, one possible meaning of “Q” is high level security clearance.

There is also The Lost Gospel “Q”, the Original Sayings of Jesus.  The appendix of this book shows nearly 50 researchers working on this subject in the 1990s.  Historians of the synoptic Gospels in Germany in the 1830s (p 26) referred to content shared by the gospels of Matthew and Luke as “Q”…short for the German word “Quelle” or “source.”

The Book of Enoch is not canonical/included in the Bible. Enoch is identified with Genesis 5:18.  Enoch was the great-great-great-great-grandson of Adam.  Curiously, there are lessons for us from Enoch forthcoming from a Qanon.

AND…

Interesting research captured in this Twitter thread.

Coded messages and a following of decoders on 8chan:

Mystery and intrigue.  Innovation for alternative media?

Who is Q, you ask? @mitchellvii.

Here is an explanation put together by brilliant Anons.

Q is synonymous with high level security clearance, like the clearance given to Jack Ryan in the Hunt for Red October.

Frequent messages:  Think for yourself.  Research.  Red pill.  Justice.  Sheep no more.

Memes:

In his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, British scientist Richard Dawkins defended his newly coined word meme, which he defined as “a unit of cultural transmission.” … Meme itself, like any good meme, caught on fairly quickly, spreading from person to person as it established itself in the language.

Q followers are also known as Qanons (anon=anonymous)

They are great researchers and communicators.

Woo!Hoo!  I completed my 2018 New Year’s Resolution (that I never considered until last year)…to read the entire Bible.

Late last year Doreen Virtue introduced on Instagram two One Year Bibles formatted Chronologically as well as one with Old and New Testament, plus Psalm and Proverb selection for each day of the year.  Doreen posts a 30 minute video on Instagram daily for the respective readings.  Video archives are loaded on VIMEO.  I find Doreen’s knowledge of New Age teaching helpful, clarifying subjects which are confounded with study of the Bible.  She is a joyful researcher.

With hindsight:

I preferred the Original One Year Bible in the first half of the year.  It helped me get thru the Old Testament with the variety of additional readings.

I preferred the Chronological One Year Bible in the second half of the year.  I found the Gospels compelling having multiple narratives on the same time line.

With this experience…now what do I do?  My inspiration comes from How to Master the English Bible by James M. Gray promoted by S Boutwell.  The last five pages are gems of advice.  Read the books of the Bible as books!  Multiple times…as many as fifty times.  (That sounds like more than a year long endeavor.)  For the longer Old Testament books, it suggests to consider as multiple books.  For the shorter books, it suggests combining them.  Look for a follow up post in the New Year!

James M. Gray, President of the Moody Bible Institute trained thousands of young people from 1904 to 1935.

Speaking of research…I follow the Museum of the Bible, Washington D.C. on Twitter.  Very impressive.  It opened Nov 17, 2017.  @museumofBible  I plan to tour it in person. Check it out:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Museum_of_the_Bible

Believe it or not, I find reading both versions of the One Year Bible helps retention.  Also, pairing the New Testament with the Old Testament readings illuminates

St Augustine’s quote “The New Testament lies concealed in the Old, the Old lies revealed in the New.”

The Apostle Paul is one very well known disciple of Christ.  Reading the Book of Acts describes his remarkable journey.  New release in 2018 http://www.paulmovie.com/site/

The Psalms are filled with praise for the Lord and lamentations about the life and times.  Psalm 119 has the distinction of being the longest book in the Bible.  You may be familiar with one of the many ways it is referenced  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psalm_119

Cheers!  I am on track with a 2018 New Year’s Resolution (that I never considered until last year)…to read the entire Bible. Late last year Doreen Virtue introduced on Instagram two One Year Bibles formatted Chronologically as well as one with Old and New Testament, plus Psalm and Proverb selection for each day of the year.  Doreen posts a 30 minute video on Instagram daily for the respective readings.  Video archives are loaded on VIMEO.

St Augustine’s quote “The New Testament lies concealed in the Old, the Old lies revealed in the New.”

The Old Testament is best known for laws…over 600 in Deuteronomy.  Many of the rules relate to matters of justice, public health, accuracy in weights and measures, land grants and subjects that we take for granted today.  Detailed building instructions were given for Noah’s Ark.  I was surprised with the detailed instructions for constructing the Ark of the Covenant, which according to Samuel 1 was eventually captured by the Philistines.

I found the Book of Job compelling…40 chapters long and in a manner of speaking, asks “Why does bad things happen to good people?”  Spoiler alert!  Sometimes it is a test.

I describe the One Year Bible with Old, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs each day as a “matrix format” which the  helps with recognition of prophecy and foreshadowing.  I am surprised with the frequency that verses from Deuteronomy are quoted in the New Testament.

"I have a dream" from the location the words were spoken.

Look for Blessings, and See Them as Mercies

Finally, Lincoln points out that even in the midst of unimaginable trial, there are daily mercies for which we can give thanks. His proclamations list many of them: fruitful fields and healthful skies; peace with foreign nations; a flourishing industrial economy; health on battlefield and home front; growth of the free population “by emancipation and by immigration”; and the fortitude to withstand the trial at hand.

Book Review: A Year of Biblical Womanhood

29 Aug

Love this!

This book has sat on my shelf for years.  This morning it captured my attention and held my attention all day.  Smart, witty, insightful, creative, knowledgable, curious, honest…

Rachel’s year of Biblical Womanhood was naturally organized with monthly themes based upon scripture.  Each month Rachel had a TO DO list for herself based upon scripture (sometimes the list included cooking, sewing, sleeping in a tent).  Occasionally, photos and her husband’s journal entries are included.  Raised evangelical, Rachel explored this subject with correspondence exchange with a Jewish woman, 3 day retreat at a monastery, Amish and Quaker experiences, extensive internet research, short stories of women of the Bible….and an extraordinary curiosity.

Fantastic resource!
