What's on Tap for October
Fri., Sep. 28. 2018 12:28pm EDT

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here again.

Marvel Comics used to have a feature called "Stan Lee's Soapbox" in which their esteemed editor/publisher would talk about upcoming projects. It was usually the first thing I'd read when a new month of comic books would come out. I loved Stan's writing style, and you can probably see traces of it in our newsletters. Well, in that grand tradition, let me tell you about what we have in the works for October.

Our next single will feature songs about:

Moses breaking the Ten Commandments
Yes, Moses boke them all literally and we break them all figuratively (Romans 3:10, 3:23, James 2:10). This is a parody I got the title for over 20 years ago but only wrote lyrics for in this last month, because I never thought we'd get to do it. This song is part of our continuing efforts in the past five years to catch up on the events of Moses' life with songs like "We're Not Goin' to Canaan," "Jesus and Moses," "Pharaoh-noid," "Ground Shook Here," "Man Born to Scale the Mountain," "Head Over Here," and "Selfish Sheep."

David's persecution by King Saul
You could call it a companion piece to "Confiscated" and "Crazy Little King God Loves," but this one is from David's perspective and includes his anxieties, plus his friendship with Jonathan, and his desire to put his hope in the Lord and not to put Saul's life in his own hands.

The single after that will feature songs about:

Peter raising Tabitha (a.k.a. Dorcas) from the dead
This parody fits in nicely with our songs about the resurrection of the Shunamite's son by Elisha ("I Just Died and Arose"), the widow's son in Nain by Jesus ("Nain"), Jairus' daughter by Jesus ("Wake Up, Talitha Cumi"), Lazarus by Jesus ("Lazzie Lay"), Eutychus by Paul ("Listenin' After Midnight), and Jesus Himself (too many to list here) — not to mention all of the dead saints in Jerusalem who were raised after Jesus was crucified ("Cemetery Came Alive").

Being a completist, you know that means I want to write two more songs so we can take care of all of the resurrections that have already taken place in the Bible. We still need one for the widow of Zarephath's son raised by Elijah in 1 Kings 17:1724 and the man brought back to life when his body touched Elisha's bones (2 Kings 13:2021).

The Prophet Isaiah
Although Isaiah's book has the second-most chapters of any in the Bible, we've never done a song specifically about it or him. Sure, we've referred to key verses from Isaiah in songs like "Virgin," "No One is Good But One," "Working for the Weakened," "Don't Bring Me Cows," "The Jews' Lost Hero," "Ballad of Jesus and Yahweh," "Put You Down in My Will," etc., but I think the guy deserves his own song.

We already have two songs each about Jeremiah ("Weep Jeremiah" and "(Be Bold) Jeremiah") and Ezekiel ("EZKiel" and "Fly Like Ezekiel"), and three about Daniel ("Daniel," "Lions," "Guide the Way," plus other songs that refer specifically to events in Daniel's book like "Babylona," "Nightmare Waiting," and "Iran (So Far Away)"). Furthermore, we've got one for each of the 12 Minor Prophets. My goodness, we even wrote two for "Habakkuk," not to mention three for Jonah, so Isaiah's overdue!

The above four songs are already well underway, and we should have them all available long before Halloween, Lord willing.
