In his book Sacred Listening, James Wakefield says, “With our imagination and reason, with our 5 bodily senses, and especially with our emotions, we become secondhand witnesses of the events of Scripture.”
The video for today asks us to do just that.
Approaching the Bible with sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch is particularly helpful for those who tend to connect to Scripture on a purely cognitive level. Rather than viewing the facts from afar, we come up close. Our whole person gets involved in understanding and living the Bible. We no longer just read a book; we live an event.
Dr. Collins challenges us to use our imagination, reason, and emotion when picturing the story of the woman caught in adultery in John 8.
