‘The Lion and the Lamb’ By Wade Fransson


The Bible is a book rich in symbols. Often there is a primary right answer in terms of what they mean, but just as, if not more, often, there are many interpretations. for example, one seminal verse is often cited to picture the Kingdom of God – Peace on Earth – Isaiah 11:6 – shown below n the New International Version
6 The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling[a] together;
and a little child will lead them.

We all understand the imagery, and what is intended, but then it is often said that “The Devil is in the detail”. So how exactly is this verse supposed to come about?

This Anthology will compile a variety of essays on the subject matter of this verse, providing much food for thought, and possibly action.

Length of Stories:

800 to 1,600 words (minimum and maximum).

Personal Contribution:

I plan to contribute a couple, and also to be a co-writer of several. Here are a few ideas:

A general Exploration of the Symbols
Samson and the Philistines – Belly of the dead lion   
Why does Christ return with a flaming sword and a rod of iron. Is that peaceful – or is it because He said He did not come to bring peace, but a Sword
Is agreement, or coercion needed?
Science – Quantum Particles / Free Will

Examples of what I like:

Here is a link to various explanations that have been provided. My vision includes personal author interpretation, specifically forward looking thinking on how this might come about in the real world. Or discussions of existing programs or societal initiatives or changes that are aligned with the fulfillment of the intent of this verse.
