The Psalms: Final Course ( Book 5 of the Psalter)
A course of six talks in the Barber Rooms

Thanks be to God
The Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

1  Psalms 107-110 The Great Homecoming
2  Psalms 111-119 Who shall Ascend the Hill of the Lord
3  Psalms 120-126 The Ascent to Jerusalem
4.  Psalms 127-135 Up to the House of the Lord
5.  Psalms 136-145 The Victorious King
6.  Psalms 146-150 Hallelujah

In Book 5, until the last psalm, we are still in a time of many challenges as Jesus our King leads us against all the forces of evil which oppose His Kingdom, but, more than all the previous books of the Psalter, this last book throbs with the hope and joy of returned exiles going up to worship and serve the Lord. It resounds with shouts of “Hallelujah” all the way through, reaching a crescendo in Psalm 150. In this way, the Psalter which has taken us through all the highs and lows of human experience, ends on a note of sheer praise.
