“Why, what evil has he done?”

They Crucified Him

They crucified Him
For Cleansing the Temple
“Why, what evil has he done?”
To be crucified?

They crucified Him
For declaring his house
A house of prayer for all the nations

They have made it a den of robbers
“Why, what evil has he done?”
They were demanding with loud cries

"Crucify, crucify him!"
Their voices of evil prevailed.
They crucified Him

God brought a nation from far away,
From the ends of the earth,
Like an eagle swooping down

The flying Eagle
Our symbol
Is it a sign?

For Vengeance is Mine
Says Our Lord
Vengeance is Mine

It is pre Christian. I can't add anymore than Kate. But it is Anno domini... Not BC....
Difficult to interpret the bible. But Germany had an Eagle. And oh boy did the give us and the Jews hell.

I believe that Scripture is Living and Active as exemplified in the person of Jesus Christ: He is Word and all that is written somehow points to His Coming. We are in the age post-crucifixion and resurrection, the age of grace prior to times of ultimate tribulation in Christian terms. We understand scripture, I suppose, in the light of our own times and in the knowledge as to what has already been fulfilled. According to Christ, ours is to love all men with a God-given love that unites rather than divides. I agree that all intervention should be with an aim to bring a sustainable peace to the troubled areas and peoples of the Middle East, rather than to keep loading the guns. Israel has always had enemies, each seeming to be perhaps as that Eagle. And no, I don't believe in coincidence anyway... but how to correctly read The Signs, that is another matter and one which needs much divine guidance. These Major Issues are so difficult to assess, given that they are only parts of the Big Overall Picture; who would have thought that it was actually in the mind and heart of God to sacrifice His own Son at the time, in order to draw all men to Himself who might trust in His glorious provision? Seen from within the situation, it would have appeared totally contradictory to what was expected in the Coming Of A Saviour. Since Man is so able to betray his own kind, then it makes me realise just how difficult and how hard-won will be the peace between warring peoples of differing race and creed. Superpowers have responsibility to act always in the light of the wider global interests and not their own... but historical and cultural allegiances are strong. Sorry... what an introduction to myself here: yes, a notorious gas-bag, I'm afraid. But thank you for the compelling write and the provocation to think long and hard about such agonising and pressing matters. All I know is that surely each and every man and woman on the face of this planet must surely wish for a secure future here for his or her child; now quite how that is to be achieved is the issue that needs addressing and can only be understood in the light of the knowledge of what the hopes and aspirations are of each people group involved. And I've said way too much. I hope that even SOME of this makes any sense. I am not a great politician or sociologist, I'm afraid... just a single member of the global community who desires to have a safe world to hand onto my grandkids... Good to meet you Michael and I will look forward to further collaborations from you both. TY Kate x

Deuteronomy 28: 49

"The LORD will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down."

Symbolism in the poem:

Is it a coincidence that the symbol of the USA is an Eagle?

It might be a far fetched idea but I feel we are leading Israel to her destruction by condoning her acts of violence and providing her with more weapons, fueling the hatred of so many nations now bent on her destruction.

The US will truly help Israel only when she is fair and even-handed and help bring peace to the Middle East region.

God bless - Michael

I don't understand the symbolism, so it is hard to comment.

Fine work by both of you! I pray when the sacrificial Lamb returns, as the Lion He now is, all will be settled as Creator has planned! May we all be under His mercy!

A very fine and seamless colaboration by you and Huda..
Flawless work that exemplifies the Crucifixion of Our Savior and Redeemer
