An "Eggsegesis" of Amos 8:1-12, by Graham McKim


Click the images to greatly enlarge them. My student Graham McKim submitted this artwork as his final exegetical assignment in my OT-2 course this spring. The use of the Pysanky egg to illustrate key themes of Amos 8:1-12 is innovative and effectively executed, making the project a standout example of integrating traditional exegesis with creative expression. The egg features two main images: a basket of ripe fruit with flies (representing the coming demise due to exploitation) and a balance scale with unequal weights (representing economic injustice).

Always glad to see you continuing your calling. Fond greetings from a fellow Gettier student. Blessings to you and your family. Just completing a series on the Minor prophets (no psanky involved) - nothing like learning under pressure!
