Collegium is a virtual space for the study of the TaNaKh and the New Testament. Feel free to join in, though do be on topic and respectful.
Finished a preliminary syntactical display. Now it's time for meditation.
Noticed in 1:1-2- God is in the business of self-revelation.- The phrase "in these last days" needs further investigation.- The Son is put forth as the beginning (Creator) and the end (Heir).These two verses summarized a critical paradigm shift for Judaism: from prophets to the Son and from texts to a Person.
Two phrases from the beginning of 1:3 caught me: "radiance of glory" and "exact imprint of his nature." While I have an idea of what these mean, I don't know--deeply know--what they mean in a know-feel-do sort of way. The first movement in remedying this is study and the second movement is savoring. The first movement requires skill and attention. The second movement requires time and submission.And so, it begins.
