The Wall That Wails No More

Here’s the thing: As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, at precisely 6:13 this past Monday morning, I had an epiphany.

Fact is, between last Saturday night and Monday morning, I was stymied by one perplexing question:

“Here in 1 Peter 2, why in the world didn’t Peter use the word for stones that is his name? Petros?”

Or to put that another way,

“Why did Peter here in 1 Peter 2 use the word for stones, Lithos?

They are, after all, synonyms—Petros and Lithos—at least in English. Both are translated “stone.” So why didn’t Peter refer to himself—and to you and me—as a Petros? Why a Lithos?

Oh, my friends, the answer to that question is breathtakingly beautiful. Beautiful indeed.

As are you!

Please remember that depending upon your web browser and connection speed, it may take up to 60 seconds for this podcast to begin to play.

God bless you richly as you listen.
