It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Baruch 4-5

Wisdom, given to Israel by God, is the book of the commandments, the law that lives forever. Wisdom speaks to the people, "You brought on your destruction yourself by your sins. May others learn from your example."

Wisdom wants to help Israel, "The one who brought these calamities upon you is the one who will deliver you. Your neighbors that saw your capture will soon see God deliver your salvation."
