1 Kings 3

This is a long and somewhat complicated chapter concerning the relationship between Solomon and the Lord of his being. I'm not going to reprint it here, nor can I cover its contents in depth.

Revelation 2:17

The entire Revelation to John—the final book of the Christian Bible—is symbolic and metaphysical. It is not to be taken literally—either as a record of past events or as a prediction of the future.

Matthew 4:5-7

I think the essence of this entire passage about the temptation of Jesus is the danger of misusing our spiritual powers, once we are awakened to their presence within us.

Psalm 33

This is a beautiful hymn of praise for the wonderful ways in which the creative Power of God ("the word of the Lord" in verse 6) expresses in the world.

Acts 3:19-22

This is part of a talk Peter delivers in the portico of the Temple in Jerusalem, to crowds who had come running because Peter and John (metaphysically, faith and love) had empowered a cripple to stand and walk.

Matthew 13:37-43

Chapter 13 of the Gospel of Matthew collects a number of parables—some lengthy, some very brief—through which Jesus seeks to communicate the essence of the 'kingdom of heaven' that is the essence of his ministerial message.

Psalm 30

Psalm 30 is a song of thanksgiving for a healing. As with all the psalms, we begin by recognizing that the Lord being addressed is the Christ—the indwelling Presence of God that is the true identity of each of us.
