Biblical Graffiti (1999)

Price: $13.00


Price Currently Paid for this CD: $2.50

Yeah, we admit that ‘Biblical Graffiti’ is an unlikely combination of words,but, then again, so is ‘Christian Rock’ and ‘Jesus Freak.’

Thirty-five years ago, Simon and Garfunkel said, ‘The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls.’ But thousands of years ago, you can find much older biblical graffiti– way back in the book of Daniel, chapter 5, with the original ‘writing on the wall.’

We confess that we weren't thinking about Daniel when the words ‘biblical Graffiti’ first came to us, although that was a confirmation. Actually, we were thinking about how this CD would have many songs encompassing many styles, so we considered spoofing some famous diverse double album from the past like the Beatles' White Album, the Rolling Stones' ‘Exile on Main Street,’ or Pink Floyd's ‘The Wall’ (yeah, we obviously thought about that one.)

Then, we remembered Led Zeppelin's ‘Physical Graffiti.’ and a light bulb went on. Not only is ‘Biblical Graffiti’ a cool title,it's got a nifty little story behind it:

When ApologetiX lyricist J. Jackson was in grade school, a bunch of kids in his grade were writing smutty graffiti on the walls and stalls of the boys' room and it bothered him. Although J. wasn't a born-again Christian yet, God was already working in his life and he started writing scripture verses and verse numbers (He didn't really know verse numbers so he made them up from what he remembered from church) next to the offensive graffiti.

Anyway, it's kind of ironic because J. didn't know the Bible very well back then but there he was back then trying to sanctify the sacrilegious by adding scripture verses and verse numbers–way back in grade school. Kind o f prophetic on God's part, don't you think? All in all, it was another brick in the wall of what God was building in ApologetiX
