Clue #3 for Our New CD "Wordplay"
Mon., Sep. 4. 2006 2:53am EDT
Our thirteenth CD, "Wordplay," is due out on November 7. Carrying on the ApologetiX tradition, "Wordplay" features 20 Biblical parodies of classic and modern rock songs. Carrying on another of our traditions, we've been giving our newsletter readers clues as to the contents. Here's the third one, so sit down in your thinking chair and think, think, think!
Although the Pharisees and temple officials wanted to stone Jesus to death for blasphemy and eventually got Pontius Pilate to crucify Him, Jesus performed many miracles that demonstrated His divinity ... long before He rose from the dead. This parody discusses two such miracles from Matt. 8 and 14 -- both of which occurred while with the Apostles on the stormy sea of Galilee with waves slashing against the boat and winds ready to wreak destruction. In both cases, you'll see proof literally that "whosoever calls upon the name of the LORD will be saved." Now that we've whetted your appetite, we must warn you that you'll need patience to figure out this week's clue. We can't use words from the original song's title or the artist/performer, because the whole clue would fall to pieces, but we will tell you this: We've spoofed songs by this group's vocalist, guitarist, bassist and drummer on previous CDs, but never with all four of them together. So use your imagination and use our elusive clues -- at the core of what seems to be a big empty paragraph lies a tiny musical clue or two ... or four.
