April Giveaway!

This month’s giveaway features a bible leaf of 2 Esdras Chapters 8 and 9 from the 1595 Geneva Bible. Considered to be apocryphal by Protestant, Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox groups, it is nonetheless viewed as an important part of genre literature.

In 2 Esdras chapters 1-2, [Also known as 5 Esdras] Ezra prophesies about God’s rejection of Israel as God’s people and its replacement by the Church. This is a Christian work composed in Greek in the mid-second century C.E.

In 2 Esdras 3-14 [also known as 4 Ezra or The Jewish Apocalypse of Ezra] Ezra engages in dialogue about the meaning of Israel’s sufferings and is granted visions that reveal what God is going to do in the near future on Israel’s behalf. This is a Jewish work written in Hebrew around 100-120 C.E and was written for consolation in a period of great distress [most likely Titus' destruction of the Temple  in AD 70]

The material contained in 2 Esdras 15-16 [ also known as 6 Ezra] consists of oracles of doom against the enemies of God’s people [the Church] and advice on how those enduring persecution should behave. This is a Christian work composed in Greek in the third century C.E

As per usual, we are dealing with a small field of potential winners and so your chances should be quite high. To be entered in the draw, all you have to do is answer this question in the combox in a sentence or two;

What was the last theological belief/ concept that you changed your mind on, and why?

Winners will be announced Thursday evening. Thanks all, and may God’s love be with you, always.

    Hmm… I waffle back and forth on predestination frequently. I think the biggest theological issue I have changed my mind on is beginning of life/contraception issues. I don’t really have a why other than I came to a point where I felt convicted about it. It wasn’t something that came out of a lot of prayer or reading, just something my heart became uncomfortable with.
