For Familiar Passages. Read Anew!
Read the passage from Last to First!
Sometimes we have read a passage of Scripture so many times we can't see it with new eyes.
How can we change the passage without changing the meaning?
What would we see if we take a passage and begin with the last verse and read the verses from for example:
Read Chapter 3:10-1.
21. Then Jesus left Galilee and went north to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
22. A Gentile woman who lived there came to him, pleading, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! For my daughter is possessed by a demon that torments her severely."
23. But Jesus gave her no reply, not even a word. Then his disciples urged him to send her away. "Tell her to go away," they said. "She is bothering us with all her begging."
24. Then Jesus said to the woman, "I was sent only to help God's lost sheep — the people of Israel."
25. But she came and worshiped him, pleading again, "Lord, help me!"
26. Jesus responded, "It isn't right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs."
27. She replied, "That's true, Lord, but even dogs are allowed to eat the scraps that fall beneath their master's table."
28. "Dear woman," Jesus said to her, "your faith is great. Your request is granted." And her daughter was instantly healed.
Matthew 15:21-28 NLT
