U2 Unplugged

No, I'm not talking about accoustic performances. I came across a blog with a series of posts analyzing U2 songs theologically. The link is to the whole series but be aware that the posts are not in the order listed in the Table of contents that he lists in the intro. Also the part numbers listed on the individual song posts do not coincide with the table of contents either so if you want to read them in that order you have to go by the titles. Enjoy.

I like the Wild Honey one, Dana.

Did you know that according to the Talmud, bees would be drawn to mustard flowers and because of their burning throats would drink lots of honey?

That the Jews were solicitous about their honey supply is indicated in the Talmud (B. Batra 18, A) where a warning is given never to let mustard plants grow near bees' nests because bees are fond of these flowers which, however, burn their throats and they then consume a greater quantity of honey.

That interests me since there are plenty of analogies to the kingdom of God being like a mustard seed...I'll figure out the connotation yet. But then the kingdom does make one thirst for that intimacy with God that Mr. Wagner talks about.
