Well, I hope you've enjoyed our time in Joshua these three weeks: this week we've reached the end of the dividing of the Land. The book still has surprises and challenges for us, as we explore the role of God's people in fulfilling God's promises. In Isaiah we have two chapters about re-creation, and in Hebrews we're looking at how the writers quotes Psalm 40.

In Isaiah and Hebrews we're considering how we read the scriptures: when and how we should pay attention to context, and when a more creative reading might be helpful. The themes of the Isaiah texts are nicely aligned, though, as God's people petition him to bring the nation back to birth, and anticipate his re-creation of the world.
