Four Perspectives

in Bible Study Jesus

As we gear up for Super Bowl Sunday, let's take a moment to consider the "wonderful technology" of instant replay. What does this have to do with the Bible? Stay with me.

You see, during the Super Bowl you may have up to 30 cameras looking at the same play. But because they're looking at that play from different angles, certain cameras will show things that other cameras will not show. That's the beauty of instant replay; you get the full picture.
