Exploring Genesis, Preparing for Lent

+JMJ+ Inspired by the Bible In A Year podcast, and memories of past Bible studies, I was exploring to see what I could find about something about a certain serpent. The serpent in Genesis is not called a snake, no matter how many times non-Christians try to mock it in that way. It’s more like a monster or dragon like Leviathan. We’ve already covered the serpent’s appearance to Eve and it will come up again later in Job. (See the links at the end of this post.) 

Here’s a good seven-part series from Philip Kosloski about the devil. I’ve enjoyed everything of his I’ve read so far.

Video: Not about the serpent in Genesis but the dragon in the story of St. George, by Taylor Marshall.

And with a view to preparing for the mysteries of Lent which are almost upon us (how the year has flown in it own weird way), here are two videos from Brant Pitre. 

Video, The Great Cosmic Exorcism, by Brant Pitre, part of the Mass Readings Explained series (this one, subscription required to access the full video and extras and very much worth it).

Video, Jesus the Exorcist, by Brant Pitre, also part of the Mass Readings Explained series (subscription required to access full videos and extras, very much worth it).

And speaking of preparing for Lent, please do join me for the Quest we’re currently on to become saints. That’s right, SAINTS! See the current Thursday series, based on the book by, you guessed it, Brant Pitre, Introduction to the Spiritual Life, our Catholic Book of the Month, for the last couple of months. :)

Thanks for visiting the blog and reading. I pray that you and I will stay holy and virtuous during this time of preparation for Lent, so that we become who the Lord intends us to be: SAINTS. God bless you and may His Peace be always with you. +JMJ+
