A glimpse of the tip of the biblical literacy iceberg

This is an interesting survey from The Christian Post regarding the verses of scripture that people identify as their favorites. It's just a top ten list, so it barely scratches the surface of scripture, but it does provide a glimpse of what people find important, and not least what they find comforting, encouraging, and instructive in response to rampant manifestations of evil in the culture. No. 6, you will note, is retrieved in Year D, but does not appear in the RCL. No. 7, popular as it is, seems to fall outside the bounds of all four years.
