I know a little bit about the bible. I have an M.Div. for Christ’s sake; it’s one of three graduate degrees for Pete’s sake! I may no longer be an ordained Benedictine monk, but I sure as Hell sat through my share of biblical studies, theology, even Greek courses. Most of them were fascinating. I had a brilliant seminary professor, one of several like that, in fact, who approached the study of sacred scriptures from a literary-criticism perspective, steeped in critical hermeneutics, semiology, and philology…right up my alley. He planted the following image in my mind (I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.):

With a little time on my hands and some inspiration, who knows what will emerge?

I’ve been thinking about Newton’s 3rd law of physics, that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, a law that apparently can be broken, “in certain nonequilibrium (out-of-balance) situations.”
Hey, I think we’re in one of those situations.
