Here’s Episode 7 of the Psalmcast on Psalm 99, the psalm appointed for the Last Sunday after the Epiphany in Year C.
The guest appearance today is from my cat Tenebrae. Apparently he felt that he didn’t get quite enough exposure by being the one of the February models in Foward Movement’s Episcocat Calendar and graced us with his presence here. You’ll hear him purring starting around 17 minutes…
The book I referred to is Jon Levenson’s Sinai and Zion. Heartily recommended!
I’ve started experimenting with Pinterest as a way to collect research pieces for the show that are primarily visual; the Pinterest board for this show is here: Episode 7 Board.
My original intention when I started the Psalmcast was a 20-minute show. Recent episodes have been creeping much longer than that. This one is right about 20, but that’s largely because the Cassiodus/historical section got the shaft… In this case, I don’t feel too bad about it. He didn’t have anything too interesting to say, and the Ancient Near Eastern stuff plays a larger role in this one in my opinion.
