Mutter und Kind

By: Friedrich Hebbel

Eben grauet der Morgen. Noch stehen die zitternden Sterne An der Woelbung des Himmels, die kaum am Rande zu blauen Anfaengt, waehrend die Mitte noch schwarz, wie die Erde, herabhaengt. Frierend kriechen die Waechter mit Spiess und Knarre nach Hause, Doch sie erloeste die Uhr und nicht die steigende Sonne, Denn noch ruhen die Buerger der Stadt und beduerfen des Schutzes Gegen den schleichenden Dieb, den spaehende Augen gewaehren. Wie der Hahn auch rufe, und wie vom Turme ...

Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt: From the very beginning, cranks and crackpots have attempted to use Revelation to advocate some new twist on the Chicken Little Doctrine: The Sky 1S Fallingl But, as I hope to show in this exposition, St. John?s Apocalypse teaches instead that Christians will overcome all opposition through the work of Jesus Christ. My study has convinced me that a true understanding of this prophecy must be based on the proper application of five crucial interpretive keys: // 1...
