Biblios Hokku – John, John and John

10 Sep

I once heard a joke about a seminary where there were four toilets, one with a broken door.  They were labelled 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and Revelation.

I didn’t say it was a very good joke, but that’s okay, because I never said these were very good haiku either.

1 JOHN
The real Word of life,
gives us a command of love,
and frees us from sin.

2 JOHN
The secret of love?
Walk after His commandments,
and you shall know Him!

3 JOHN
Walk in truth, children.
Imitate good, not evil.
For this is of God.

As always, you can read the whole Bible here, or click on one of the books to learn more about the theology of the poem.
