In this session, Dr. Nunnally reminds us of Israel’s tendency to abandon the one true God in favor of idols made of wood and stone. The discussion concludes with an examination of the ancient mind, and the amazing amount of informtion, committed to memory.
This session moves slightly off the beaten path with emphasis on the Ten Commandments. “God covenants with people and brings them into relationship, then He introduces commandments — relationship precedes commandment.” Dr. Nunnally offers a high reconnaissance of how God connects with His people, and how they are to connect with Him. — The second trail (off the beaten path) convenes a conversation on verbalization and oral tradition. “The ancients didn’t think their prayers, they prayed them aloud. St. Ambrose was considered a genius because he could read without saying the words verbally.”
