After Darkness, Light: The Gospel in Poem

I have spent the last few days thinking and thinking on the theme of God breaking through darkness with light. We see this thought woven throughout Scripture and finding ultimate expression in the gospel. Here is a poem that attempts to capture the gospel angle on light conquering darkness.

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.
