1. Maranatha!

From the recording The Good, the Bad and the Holy

Part 12 of 12: The Early Church (70 AD)
as told in Acts, Romans, 1&2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1&2 Thessalonians, 1&2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1&2 Peter, 1,2&3 John, Jude, and Revelation


Mary and the twelve apostles
were gathered in the Upper Room.
Tongues of fire descended on them.
Time to preach the word of the tomb!
What do we do about circumcision?
The Gentile problem’s begun,
So Pete and Paul and the James decision:
We’ll keep a couple of laws and the Son!

Maranatha! Venga, Yeshua, Adonai!
Maranatha! Venga, Yeshua, God on high!

Paul, a Pharisee and a Roman,
was persecuting the Way,
saw the light and became a spokesman.
We read his letters today:
Forget your animal sacrifices!
I got your “Unknown God”!
You can call me the late apostle.
Besides, Peter gave me the nod!

Eschatological revelation, let’s end the stories this way.
The real apocalyptic question is “Are you ready today”.
Are you ready today?
(Chorus 2x)
