my own exegesis

(in response to the sermon)

x

Exodus, Moses, pillars

foot of the mountain

young men sacrificing bulls

the blood upon the people

the purity of blood

they meet God

x

this business about blood and purity

blood and sacrifice for purified results

I don’t understand it

I’m put off

if not revolted

I’m glad it’s done

thank God it’s done

by Jesus

thank Jesus

who for God and as God

sacrificed himself

whose blood must have purified the Earth

his blood purifies us

to be with God

now and forever

one sacrifice, one purity

for all time

the killing, bleeding business now is done

betrayal’s done

as is blood-letting

the blood of Jesus is

restoration

into garden-readiness

again

we could be back in Eden

we will be

new heaven and new Earth
