I love Jesus, people, reading, writing, and just the beautiful little intricacies of life. This will be an odd assortment of a few book reviews,original short writings, scripture and life reflections. I also frequently enjoy fangirling and silliness (I won't make a list; it's too random). Currently working towards an M.A. in English. I like me some Shakespeare and Marlowe.Also musicals. If you need to talk to anyone or need prayer for anything, feel free to message me. I love you. I may not know you yet, but I totally love you, because you are a beautiful creation of God with a purpose.
At mine unworthiness that dare not offer
What I desire to give, and much less take
What I shall die to want. But this is trifling;
And all the more it seeks to hide itself,
The bigger bulk it shows.
So I’m sure you recognize this as one of the epic moments from “The Prince of Egypt” where we see the super majestic whale as they cross through the Red Sea. However I noticed just one little issue: whale tales don’t move from side to side, they move up and down. And then it hit me, that’s not a whale. That’s not a whale. It’s a motherfucking SHARK. A BIG ASS MEGALODONIAN SHARK. WAITING IN THE WATER TO EAT THE PHARAOH’S SOLDIERS. damn, Dreamworks.
This has next to nothing to do with this commentary (although it is pretty crazy that that’s a shark), but this is my favorite depiction of this moment in Exodus. I really don’t like the one in The Bible series where all of the israelites are freaking out and getting drenched and they’re having to run really fast so that the Egyptians don’t catch them. No, I picture it going down way more like this. God isn’t barely holding the water back; this is not a huge issue for him. They are able to calmly walk through DRY land (not muddy land) and see amazing things like this, that no one had ever been able to see before. Idunno. I’ve just always loved this moment in this film. I feel like it’s truer to scripture and God’s strength.
