Juxtaposition

If you follow the reading schedule, isn’t it interesting how things are placed together.  For example we read Psalm 2, “Why do the nations conspire…against…the anointed one” and then we read Matthew 2 where Herod tried to destroy the baby Jesus.

Don’t make too much of these, but they are fun to notice.  Lot’s of times, we gain insight from approaching a text from a different context (i.e. the context of the reader.)
