I know, definitely, that Christ enjoyed and loved all he did on earth for Abba. There’s an accuracy in Christ’s sermons and teachings. Christ was creative with his words, and blunt. My point is this–when did he sing? There’s a small hint of song when “they sung a hymn, and departed out of the Mount of Olives,” (Mark 26:30). “She smiles.” I’m not asking a theological question for debate or critical thought. But, I am asking that we ponder this creatively.
I’m a musician. I love the keys, and i look for Christ in every note.
Ephesians 5:19-20 (Amplified Bible) tells all to
19 Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,
20 At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.
The melodies from my heart have been released from the Lord so that I may offer my gifts to the Lord and to all. Mark 26:30 coins our Savior singing–following the Jewish tradition of Passover. Jewish music is cantorial and synagogal and Temple-like. Therefore, I see Christ as a pure instrument in voice and song–in consistent worship and praise towards the Father. I also know that Christ mirrored what Paul exhorts all to do in Ephesians 5:19-20.
