A Concert of Sacred Metaphors — Water and Stones


As I mentioned on the previous blog in this series, the prelude flows straight into the first song. This one, by Michael Card, is called “The Baptism”, and talks about the Baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan.

I love the sense of flowing water you get from the accompaniment.  Listen closely and feel it bubbling by.

The lyrics also talk about Christ as the Stone that makes men stumble, and the rock that makes them fall. Listen for how the metaphors are used.
