Reader's Diary #1091- The New King James Version Bible: James, Peter I, Peter II

Cruising right along, I can see the end in sight, I'm starting to once more appreciate some of the writing of the NKJV. I'm noticing the symbolism and figurative language again, and able to focus better. That said, it was a week or so ago that I finished these three books, and as will happen, I've forgotten most of what I'd planned to say.

Lazy blogger.

James, a bit more of an upbeat guy, than Paul, seemed to focus more on showing love and respect to one other. Nice message. Peter 1, Paul-lite at times (there's another piece about wives submitting to their husbands), but there's an interesting back story I found, while trying to refresh my memory online, about 1 Peter 3:19-20 and an old belief above Jesus descending into Hell. And finally Peter 2, wins some points for reminding me once again of the talking donkey. No, not this one.

Love, weekend excursions to Hell, and talking asses. Is that too much to ask?
