+ 27.225 MHz 052: Biblical Astronomy In Brief

That Star---the bright one, the morning one

is a metaphor of Christ, our great God's son:
always faithful to us, that effulgent Light---
whether by morning, by noon, or by night.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The first line of the poem is the literal translation, so they tell me, of Revelation 22:16; since it is not mine, I have put it in italics.  Fascinatingly (in my opinion), this is Chrisy's final metaphor of Himself in the whole Bible.

 

The first phrase of the third line is based upon 2 Timothy 2:13.
