If you have not yet listened to part one in our series, we encourage you to check it out before diving into Part 2.
In Part 2, Wayne and I discuss the ways in which ancient Jewish people kept time, we talk about the beauty and regularity of the sun and moon that give us the ability to know times and seasons and we also discuss the wondrous regularity of nature.
Why is it that the sun, moon, and stars all faithfully seem to know their place? Why is it we can predict where they will be in the sky? Why is nature so regular and ordered?
We think it is because Jesus created nature to be this way. It is His "fixed order" that He established when He created the heavens and the earth. And in Jeremiah 31, the LORD uses this "fixed order" of the cosmos as an example of His unfailing and steadfast love toward us in Christ, and even to all creatures great and small, including a humpback whale who delights to eat anchovies!
So come and spend some time with us as we explore the wondrous regularity and usefulness of the sun, moon, stars, and nature.
In Part 3 we will discuss how calendars are relevant to the last week of Christ and the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion.
