Larry Hunt's Bible Commentary


    SWEET RIVER FOOL - Alcoholic, homeless, and alone, Snody despaired of life until a seemingly chance encounter with Saint Francis of Assisi led him to the joys of Christ and the redemption of his soul…

  • THE GLORY OF KINGS - A proposal for why God will always be the best explanation for the existence of the universe.

  • ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD - Enoch had a beautiful soul and walked with God in many ways. This book invites children to imagine what some of those ways might have been while presenting them with a wonderful model for their own lives.

A poem composed while watching the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus – 6/30/2015

Posted by lehunt on July 2, 2015

Here is a poem that I composed (for the most part) while watching the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus a couple of days ago.  That conjunction is the celestial event that many scholars believe was The Star of Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago.  (The background picture is my best attempt to photograph it.)  It should still be visible until the fourth of July.  For some of my thoughts on the magi, click here.

Whispering Magi //

“What does it mean – now they have met?”

“The birth of a king.”

“But more than a king.  The jewelers of nature have set

The infinite mind in a perishing ring.”
