Psalm Facts: The Hallel Psalms (113-118) are the Psalms that begin and end with the Hebrew word “Hallel” which means praise and the foundation of the word Hallelujah.  These are the Psalms that Israel sang during the Passover and most likely the hymns that were sung by Jesus and his disciples at Passover (Matthew 26:30).  Some have said that they also form the foundation of the Lord’s Prayer.

The Songs of Ascent are the 15 Psalms (120-134) that begin with the phrase “Song of Ascent.”  There are many ideas about the meaning of this phrase but the most likely is that they are songs that were sung as an approach to the Temple which was on the highest part of Jerusalem.  In the Temple was a wide stairway of 15 stairs that led into the inner courtyard.  The Priests are said to have ascended these 15 steps singing each Psalm on the corresponding ascending stair.

Psalm 119 is the longest Psalm in the Psalms and is an acrostic; each section is headed by a letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes.

Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
