Jesus the logos

To Israelites of Old Testament times, God’s word was more than something written down or spoken out. It was something active so that when God expressed His will, that will be carried out. God spoke, and it was done (Genesis 1:3; Psalm 33:9; Isaiah 55:10-11 ). By His active word, God created the universe (Gen 1:6,9,14; Ps 33:6 ). God’s word had such life and power that people thought of it almost as if it were a person – God’s living agent or messenger (Psalm 107:20; 147:15,18 ).

Jesus transfigures

Jesus’ transfiguration took place on a high mountain, possibly Mount Hermon, which was not far from Caesarea Philippi. The event was a revelation of Christ’s glory and was witnessed by only three chosen apostles. In coming into the world as a human being, Jesus had laid His divine glory aside, but now it reappeared briefly through a human body. It gave an indication of the glory He would receive after He had finished the work He came to do.

Day of the Lord

The day of the LORD is the intervention of God in judgement where He is expected to restore people and bless them. Israelites thought that this day would be one of victory and rejoicing for them because their enemies would be destroyed. Amos tells them that when God acts in judgement, He will act against all the wicked, and Israel will be the first to suffer. There will be no way of escape, no place of safety, when God’s judgement falls (verse 18-20).

Women of Bashan

Many people knew about the cows of Bashan. The cows were big there (Psalm 22:12), and they ate good grass (Micah 7:14; Jeremiah 50:19 ). They were probably the best cows in Israel. Amos compares these cows to the rich women. This is an insult. These women did not care about poor people. Also, they had too much power in their homes (see 1 Timothy 3:11). They were not responsible.

How Excellent is your Name

Psalm 8 is the second messianic psalm after Psalm 2. This is evident from its quotation in Hebrews 2, which clarifies that this psalm is about the Lord Jesus. Psalm 8 is the first song of praise in Psalms. This psalm is the only one addressed to God alone. This is remarkable because it is about the true Man, the Son of Man, Who came to glorify God only after He fell into the earth like the grain of wheat and died (John 12:24).
