When we’re just starting out to study the Jerescope there will be many pauses to absorb what the Bible is telling us. Without my trying to fill in the context for you, dear reader, much of what you’ll encounter is certain to seem like the most abstract and irrelevant of stuff. I have learned by experience – of almost eight years’ daily work – that that first impression is not going to last long! A reaction of thinking, “This is really alien!” is natural (C.S. Lewis wrote a whole book about that.) Just add this commentary to your reaction: wisdom is much more than knowledge because it has action points. A point on a level spot of ground can be useful for setting up a sign-post or for dropping a plumb-line. Or for drawing a line in the sand or digging in one´s heels… Does the ancient Scripture point towards anything in your future? Are we “there” yet?
We’re getting somewhere – but by what measure? When the Jerescope is “dialed”, as the thesis of this page proposes, a shift off the line of the text as written can (or, in some places must) take place for the writer’s intent to be given its readers’ proper attention. Degrees, ranges and scopes all share…
I like to get emails on <firstname.lastname@example.org> since they aren’t going through another stage of connections and I will then have the capability to respond personally.
