Propitiation: The Gospel in Poem

This poem was inspired by many of the things I wrote in the previous post. I have been thinking a lot about how the flood relates to the gospel. This is my attempt to capture these thoughts in a more artistic way. If your curious about the biblical background of the poem, you can check out the flood narrative in Genesis 6-9, the various crucifixion narratives in the gospels, and the doctrine of propitiation as found in Paul and John’s letters.
