[random notes: Passion – movie trivia thoughts]

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I had read this ditty about the scouring scene but never gave it any thought. I am glad you reminded me of it again. Like you said: after two times it was too much, I can't imagine what it would have been like for Jesus. gonna have to find that song on YouTube and listen to it.

  • No video for the song. Only Jefferson Starship and Miley (and that ain't going to happen). Lyrics will have to do. 🙂

  • yeah, Foolish Things got great lyrics in all of their songs…

    if you won't find it on youtube, lemme know – i can send the mp3 by e-mail.

  • Did not know that bit of trivia, or if I did I had forgotten it. I had read in my studies how the scourge actually flays the skin and the number of lashes applied in punishment were strictly monitored because they were known to kill the recipient.

    • yah… that's why it was said back in Deuteronomy 25:2-3 that "…if the wicked man deserves to be beaten, the judge shall then make him lie down and be beaten in his presence with the number of stripes according to his guilt. He may beat him forty times but no more, so that he does not beat him with many more stripes than these and your brother is not degraded in your eyes."

  • It really is crushing to my heart when I consider what He willingly subjected Himself to so that all of us could have the opportunity to have a relationship with Him.

    Have you heard the song David Crowder covered called "How He Loves"? I cannot help but get choked up every time I hear it. Here is a vid link:

  • herb, I love that song by Crowder. It's my favorite of all of Crowder's songs. I bought the CD just because I loved that song. it's amazing to think how God loved us so much…and that jesus suffered so much. to think that this punishment was meant for us, yet He took it. Great stuff Zee.

  • There is a line in that Crowder song that says "He is jealous for me" – I began to perceive His jealousy a bit differently because of it – I had always thought of His jealousy in terms of our affection for Him (no other gods but YHWH), but this song makes me think of His jealousy in terms of His affection for us – no one could love us more.

    • the verse that came to mind when you mentioned His jealousy… from Songs of Solomon 8:6… "For love is as strong as death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave. Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame."

      or like Eugene Peterson translated it… "Love is invincible facing danger and death. Passion laughs at the terrors of hell. The fire of love stops at nothing – it sweeps everything before it."

  • zenichka

    Herb – will check the song in the morning one I get to a normal computer (using my iPod right now). I really like David Crowder's stuff.

    Michelle – yeah. Sometimes I wonder whether I was worth such a sacrifice, but He reminds me of His awesome love… "what is a man that You take such carE of him?"
