Thread Name: Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird?
Subject: RE: Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird?
I'm not sure it's useful to look for a lot of Biblical or theological meaning when the song (GSB no. 2) says "The great speckled bird in the Bible is one with the Great Church of God." Who knows what the composer (Acuff in this case) was thinking. Remember that people have constructed an entire set of worship practices from the Biblical phrase "and they shall take up serpents."
