Episode 6 of “By the Waters of Babylon” Podcast Now Available: “The Theo-Logic of Biblical Worship”

I have posted episode 6 of my new podcast, “By the Waters of Babylon.” You can listen here.

In this episode, I trace the pattern of worship found in Scripture from Mt. Sinai, to the tabernacle dedication, to the dedication of Solomon’s temple. I then show how this pattern is actually found in the worship of heaven itself, and thus establishes a model even for the order of worship today.

Second, I introduce an ancient, fourth-century Latin hymn, “Holy God, We Praise Your Name,” which portrays the worship of heaven in a beautiful and vivid way.

Finally, I recommend a book that demonstrates the way Christian worship through the ages has typically followed the heavenly pattern of worship modeled in Scripture, Bryan Chapell’s Christ-Centered Worship.

I pray that this episode will be a help and an encouragement to you. Please subscribe to the podcast, and if you find it helpful, please rate it on iTunes.
