Kevin Chen - Breakout Session Read, Pray, Sing: The Psalms as an Entryway to the Scriptures

    • Christianity

It is easy to forget that the Psalms are 150 separate poems. They are creative, emotional, lyrical poems designed in the mind of God.
The poetry is easy to overlook because we read the Psalms in English translations. This breakout session will help us to rediscover the poetry of the Psalms.
We will examine the use of descriptive imagery, helpful comparisons, and some uniquely Hebrew characteristics as well. Just as we read and interpret English poems differently from,
say, essays or personal letters, we should also read and interpret the Psalms according to their style.
