    Default What's your favorite book of the Bible?

    I tried to separate them into similar themes.

    Ahhh, thanks, DA.

    The Apocalypse.

    A.k.a., Book of Revelation.

    Try The Thunder, Perfect Mind next time.

    Yay.

    Those are taken out of context even if they read "real historical context", Anglas.

    But still, stick to your Bible intellectual source.

    Yay.

    Revelation was very abstract. Song of Solomon always bored me.
    I love the historical parts of the Old Testament the most. Judges in particular. It's just one hero story after another. Bad-guys getting crushed and gutted. Fun.

    Samuel. I read that a couple of times. Great adventure story.
    The king is jealous, so he tells this teenager to kill a bunch of enemies in hopes of getting him killed. (The foreskins bit was just to prove he was killing Philistines and not Jews.)

    gospel of thomas

    Simon Peter said to him, "Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of life."
    Jesus said, "I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven."

    The apocalypse. Then there are some creepy as hell stories that I find interesting (like the one where two daughters drug and rape their dad because they want to have babies with him) but I don't remember which book they belong to and if the book is interesting as a whole.

    That's Genesis. After Lot (Abraham's nephew) and his family flee the city God destroys (and Lot's wife is turned to salt), he and his daughters (whose fiances were just killed) end up as sort of hermits, so those girls got desperate and wanted babies. There was a man around...
    Anyway, they had two sons and their descendants are still around.

    1 Peter 5:8-11
    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
    Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
    But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
    To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    I don't have a favorite book of the Bible. But I have some random favorite verses. One that means a lot to me is from the book of Titus: "At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy."
    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation

    Ugh. The New Testament is complete shit. None of you have any taste. It's not as literary and all you get is Jesus and some pussy ass God. No action.

    Scapegrace, there is action in the New Testament too. Paul had quite a few adventures. Shipwreck, snakebite, earthquake, escaping over a city wall. Admittedly there's very little war compared to the Old Testament, but it's a shorter time period and they were under Roman rule.

    The New Testament could span a single lifetime. The Old Testament sometimes crams generations into a chapter.

    The Passion of The Christ was the most violent movie I've ever seen. It dwarfs everything else by comparison. Not virtually everything, but 100% everything.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    My favorite books - judging by how often I've come back to them over the years - would be Ecclesiastes, Revelation, Isaiah, 1. John, Hoshea and Ezekiel, appx in that order.

    Ecclesiastes because of it's philosophical message, Revelation because of it's structure, language and lofty themes rather opposite to those of Ecclesiastes, Isaiah for it's diversity and wealth of content, 1. John for it's language, Hoshea for it's straightforwardness and pure language; and finally Ezekiel, partly for the curious sleep-inducing ILI-like monotony as recited in the mechon-mamre recordings.

    I remember many years ago there was a TV series "The prophets of Israel" (נביאי ישראל) originally from Israeli TV where Hannah's prayer in 1. Sam ch 2 was recited in singing, with a catchy melody I still remember; I've been looking for ages on youtube and other places for information on how to get hold of these recordings or at least see them again and I would appreciate any relevant info.

    Nowadays you can also say "Not literally everything, but, like, 100% everything" since the word literally can also be used as an intensifier according to Merriam Webster and others.

    God doesn't know whether he wants to be this peaceful liberal hippie or this really mean person who punishes people for stuff that really isn't that big of a deal, just to be an asshole. I suppose it's meant to represent the struggle between nice and naughty that we all go through. I think when taken in that sense the bible isn't so destructive, instead of thinking of it as you know like this actual deity we are to obey... OR ELSE. (I also question the notion that I have to worship something just because it supposedly created me, it seems to only make sense on a very elementary level.)

    Also punishing somebody for eternity just because they didn't follow your rules, like FOREVER AND EVER is the most assholeish thing imaginable. I couldn't wish that on the world's worst homophobe.

    I connected somewhat to Nehemiah. I read he's typed as INFp. He was a bit doom and gloomy and fearful of incurring his deity's wrath for me, but aside from that, he saw a future and orchestrated and projected and studied and had a strong will. Societal change for the health of each. I liked that. Can't say it's my favorite, but meh.

    um, it occurs to me I found the WRITING STYLE of Mark very..attractive. I DID, though! I later found propositions online that that book is Se-influenced. I could see it.

    I'm astounded that nobody has mentioned Job.


    Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
    Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
    Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
    How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?
    Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
    Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.
    Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.
    And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.
    Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.
    Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

    Job 37:14-23

    Imma crash the party. My favorite books are the texts that were deliberately NOT included in Bible.

    I like Galatians.

    from Galatians 5:13-26 -

    13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
    14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”...

    16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
    17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.
    18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

    19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;
    20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
    21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
    23 gentleness and self-control.
    Against such things there is no law.
    24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
    26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

    More Galatians favorites:

    _________________

    Galatians 6: 7-9

    7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.



    ________________


    Galatians 6:14

    14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

    ________________________


    Galatians 2:20

    20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Then, there is SO MUCH from Isaiah! I am thinking of this wonderful chorus from Handels Messiah:"

    "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way. And the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all."
    (Isaiah 53: 6)

    But, just so, so much of Isaiah, all of this immortalized below in Handel's astounding work:

    "Ev'ry valley shall be exalted, and ev'ry moutain and hill made low; the crooked straight and the rough places plain.
    (Isaiah 40: 4)

    "Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call His name Emmanuel, God with us."
    (Isaiah 7: 14)

    "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light;
    and they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. "
    (Isaiah 9: 2)

    For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
    (Isaiah 9: 6)

    He was despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
    (Isaiah 53: 3)
    "A man with a definite belief always appears bizarre, because he does not change with the world; he has climbed into a fixed star, and the earth whizzes below him like a zoetrope."

    Job prophesies the truth of the resurrection of our bodies: We shall see God, in our flesh:

    "I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand
    at the latter day upon the earth.
    And though worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God."

    (Job 19: 25-26)

    I think reading Book of Revelation to xSI types should do the trick. It needs my personal touch, though.
    Enneagram 3 blindspot. Visual deficits in 4, 8. Triple instinctual blindspot.

    Highly immature Discord channel
    because enneagram is just too simple and therefore we need to develop a new classification system called Rhombic triacontahedron with life module containing eukaryotes, prokaryotes and virus.
