My favorite verse ...

You can find an index of all the 31 Days of Encountering Judaism here.

My favorite verse in the entire Christian Bible is not found in the New Testament.

No sirree. It's the prophet Micah:

This is what the Lord asks of you, only this: to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)

I discovered this verse during my EfM (Education for Ministry) studies and when I became an Associate of the Order of the Holy Cross (AHC for short), my EfM mentor gifted me a piece of calligraphy with this verse, written by Br. Roy -- and look! It has Hebrew as part of the design. I think that's kind of neat, that it was there long before Judaism became a part of my life.



Of course, this is the only loving verse in all of Micah... and there's a really neat diagram showing that on Theologygrams. (I didn't know if it would be cool to link the image here directly. Generally speaking, that isn't a cool thing to do without permission.)

I still love this verse though.

What's your favorite verse from the Hebrew Scriptures (aka Old Testament)?

  1. Just discovered your blog via the Nester and am really enjoying your posts so far! As an Orthodox Jew, reading about reform Judaism through a Christian's eyes is really fascinating!
