Biblical Chiasms in the Interpretation of Scripture – an Introductory Reader
Here are some chapters from this book. Chapter 1 looks at the famous verse in the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus tells the disciples not to cast their pearls before swine. Chapter 2 is a chiastic analysis of the first four verses of Romans Ch. 8 starting with Paul’s glorious words, “Therefore there is now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus . . .” Chapter 3 in an inter-textual analysis of the intriguing connections between the miraculous draught of 153 fishes recorded near the end of John’s Gospel and Solomon’s Temple in the Old Testament. Chapter 4 looks at Paul’s well-known injunction to the Thessalonians, “If a man will not work, let him not eat!”. Chapter 5 proposes a chiastic link in Mark’s Gospel between the three parables preceding Jesus’ stilling of the storm on the Sea of Galilee, and the three healing miracles that follow.
