Horticultural Hermeneutics

Another original musing from Chris Cole.

Most students of the Bible are undoubtedly aware that the Apostle Paul prior to his Christian conversion was a Pharisee who was also trained as a tent maker as his vocation in life. It was not until recently, however, that archeologists unearthed scrolls describing a side hobby that Paul also had. It seems Paul had quite the green thumb. That’s right — it seems he had quite a knack for not only cultivating various flowering plants, but also he often sent along a lovely plant as a gift whenever he sent one of his letters to the early churches. The plants proved so popular that whenever news spread to a community of believers that one of Paul=EDs letters was on the way, everyone looked forward to the arrival of the Pistils of Paul.
