  • 3. Wondrous Redeemer

    Contributed on Apr 20, 2016

    Psalm 78:42-55 Wondrous Redeemer 12/25/11 D. Marion Clark Introduction The text read may seem out of place on a day when we celebrate birth and peace. It presents a dramatic account of the great redemption that God’s people celebrated. It is the story that gave them their identity, more

  • 6. I Forgot

    Contributed on Mar 31, 2016

    Psalm 78:9-11 I Forgot 12/30/08 D. Marion Clark Introduction This psalm is excellent for studying at the end of the year – for it is a psalm of looking back so as to look forward. The first eight verses focus on the obligation God’s people have to pass on to the next generation more

    Psalm 78:10 The Covenant 1/2/11 D. Marion Clark Introduction Psalm 78 lays forth the sins of the Israelites clearly. They were guilty of not remembering the works of the Lord, which are detailed in the psalm – the miraculous works of deliverance from Egypt and provision in the more
