Below are a couple of Bible In Poems random poem selections

Jesus Honors John

Matthew 11:2-30

Now John was in prison, but he wasn't a dupe.
You have to remember, he was out of the loop.

While sitting alone, John heard what Jesus had done.
He sent two to ask Christ, are you really the one.

Jesus said tell John, of the signs God's given.
Blind see, lame walk, and the dead are now liven'.

Then the people ask of John, such a wild looking man.
He ate locust, wild honey and wore leather ore his tan.

Well what did you expect? Was Jesus' reply.
John lived in the desert, not a king's house on high.

But of those born of women, was no greater than John.
Yet I'll give you a promise, that you can count on.

Works are good. Faith is better. Now listen to me.
The least in the kingdom is greater than he.

I don't work these miracles for mere earthly fame.
I show you that you can believe on my name.

One day Jesus would be the lamb for our sin.
Save us not by our works, rather our faith in Him.

Then Christ warned Capernaum on Galilee's Sea.
After all of these miracles, you still reject me.

I don't ask the impossible to save you from your plight.
I will give your souls rest, for my burden is light.


Unwashed Hands

Matthew 14:34-15:20, Mark 6:55-7:23

When the masses heard where Jesus was, they spread the news around.
Wherever Jesus traveled, every village every town,

They brought their sick upon their beds and said, just touch the hem.
And when the people touched His clothes, the Lord would heal them.

But the Pharisees from Jerusalem, were intent on making a mess.
Your disciples don't keep our traditions. Why do they transgress?

They eat their food with unwashed hands. This will make a ten-year-old smile.
There's something more important than washing your hands, and you have missed it by a mile.

Your traditions have nullified God's commands.
You hypocrites with all your well washed hands.

God says, honor your parents, but you've made a loophole.
You think your traditions will save your soul?

Isaiah prophesied, you'd honor God with your lips,
but your hearts would perish like sinking ships.

Your worship is vain. No better than sin.
You teach for commandments the traditions of men.

It's not what goes in that makes you fall or stand.
It's what comes out that defiles a man.

You made the Pharisees angry, shooting down their pitch.
They're the blind leading the blind, and both will fall into the ditch.

Then Peter asked about what defiles a man.
Jesus said guys, you mean you don't understand?

What you put in your mouth does not defile a man.
Even if you eat it with your dirty hand.

But what comes out tells all what's really inside.
Your words let people see what the heart can't hide.

Evil thoughts are the things that defile a man.
They're infinitely worse than an unwashed hand.
