Poetry is beautiful and moving. It can give expression to thoughts and emotions that we didn’t know we had. But let’s be honest, poetry can be confusing, especially when we are trying to see the meaning of a text, and it can be frustrating when that text is trying to tell us something important.
God chose to reveal himself and his plan of salvation in part through poetry in the Bible. Understanding what it is and how poetry works can help us gain deeper insight into the God behind the words. Knowing poetry can help us see more clearly what God is doing and what is being communicated to us through the rhymes and rhythms of the text. Join us as we explore the poetry of the Bible and hear God ever more clearly.
