Handout: Psalm 48: God Delivers Zion

 

Summary:

Tonight's study examined Psalm 48 as a response to God's miraculous deliverance of Jerusalem from the overwhelmingly superior Assyrian army.  We spent some time addressing how God's perspective on physical life and death may be different from ours as well as the different understandings of love and hate between Hebrew and Christian thought.  We touch briefly upon the geography of Jerusalem and some of the common metaphors used in this psalm.

In the unrecorded second half, we prayed the Thursday Morning Office from the 13th week of Ordinary Time.
