    Breakout Session: Hearing the Psalms: Reading with Head and Heart

    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.

    Breakout Session: God as a Poet: The Poetry of the Psalms

    Paul Jackson - Breakout Session

    Paul Jackson - Breakout Session

    The Psalms are like a densely thicketed forest with five distinct yet connected sections. As a forest is only as beautiful as the sum of its trees, the Psalms overarching glory eludes
    us if we mainly study them individually. Sometimes interpretations and applications are missed because a key observation has been overlooked by focusing on just one "tree" - the key of observing how
    the author crafted the transitions between each large section. This session will explore how understanding the structure of the Psalms is essential for proper interpretation and application.
