Biblios Hokku – Revelation

And now, the end is near…

Revelation (note, no “s”) is the final book in the Bible, and also the final piece of Biblios Hokku.  I’ve enjoyed the process, and I hope you have as well.  Read the complete series here, or click on the title below to find our more about this chapter.

REVELATION
Apocalypse now!
Through strife and judgment,
we win in the end!

Biblios Hokku – Jude

Hey Jude…..

Okay, jokes over.  Back to work.

JUDE
Contend for the faith.
Your freedom is not to sin,
but to live in Grace.

Biblios Hokku – John, John and John

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.

Peter

The apostle Peter was one of the most significant members of the early church, but we have only two books that he wrote.

1 PETER
Take heart and rejoice:
In a world of suffering
God is in control.

2 PETER
Be true to the word
and grow in faith and knowledge.
You’ll not go astray.

To learn more about these two books, click the title.  Otherwise click here to read the whole Bible in Haiku.

Biblios Hokku – James

Ah, James.  A great book of the Bible.  How do you reduce it to a few words?

Like this, I think:

JAMES
To grow in spirit;
Your belief is not enough.
Faith needs deeds to live.

To learn more about the theology of the book, click the title.  Otherwise go here to learn all about the Biblios Hokku project, and read the whole series.

Biblios Hokku – Titus

 

Ah Titus.  What can one say about Titus?

Well… this:

 

TITUS
Be ready for good,
holding faithful to the word,
and choose wise leaders.
