Welcome to Holy Textures

 


Holy Textures
is a spot for my musings on the readings from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John that come our way through the Revised Common Lectionary.

My goal is to provide timely, short, easy to use, faith inspiring explanations of the meanings of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John for your sermon, homily, bible study, or personal reflection.

 

I draw on the work of scholars who study what life was like at the time of Jesus. For example:

Why was Jesus buried in a tomb, and not in a grave?

Learning what First Century Jews believed about burial customs and resurrection has changed forever my understanding of Easter. Maybe it will yours too? Click here to read, The Reality of the Resurrection.

Below is a complete listing of all posts.

Thank you for using Holy Textures. I trust it will be a blessing to you and your ministries.
