The Bible: Music to the Believer’s Ears

Reading the Bible is like listening to a symphony orchestra performing the magnum opus of a Bach or a Beethoven. You can listen to its musical solos – from the poignant sound of violins and cellos of the Psalms and Proverbs, to the grand trumpets of the Prophets, to the rolling timpani crescendo of Revelation. Or you can listen to all of them at the same time as one magnificent musical masterpiece. The notes may seem to sound cacophonic and discordant, but they all come together with one cohesive theme.

If music can soothe the savage beast, Scripture can tame the rebellious soul.
