The Numinous Nine are set. Over the next three days, we’ll get a chance to whittle nine Scripture verses into a final Trinity. The pairings include Saturday’s: 1 Cor 13:13/Ps 46:11a/Mt 11:28 and tomorrow’s Jn 1:1/Lk 24:32b/Gal 3:28
Today’s trio includes another Luke/John matchup, but with a Psalm verse thrown in.
From the raising of Lazarus in the fourth Gospel, a close winner over Micah:
Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live.”
The good thief entered paradise, and also our penultimate round:
Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.
And the Psalmist urges us:
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?
Should the Psalmist fear being eliminated by one of two Gospel passages? Vote, then check it Sunday morning.
