Bedankt voor de preek over Mattheüs 20! Na het lezen begrijp ik meer wat Jezus bedoelt, vooral omdat je de context ook zo goed meeneemt. Ik kon niet anders, dan het eens zijn met je uitleg (ook na even kritisch te kijken;).

Nogmaals dankjewel.

I just wish to thank you for your great reply to Larry Fyffe and his scurrilous Gnosticism article on Untold Dylan. That Angelina quote, in paricular, was a whopper!

Yours Sincerely,

Beste Kees,

Googelend naar een analyse van Bob Dylans song 'Covenant Woman', kwam ik jouw blog analyse tegen. Geweldig. Ik ben o.a. een singer-songwriter en sinds 1979 opnieuw geboren. Vanaf 'Slow Train Coming' ben ik ook Dylan fan. Dat hij een profetische roeping heeft ondanks zijn ongrijpbare levenswandel, dat moge duidelijk zijn. Dat hij zich niet conformeert aan kerkelijk en wettisch denken, betekent niet automatisch dat hij de satan dient. Dat is onzin en erg naïef om dat te denken. Als jood is hij een messiaanse Jesus-volger en ongrijpbaar voor de oppervlakkige denkers en farizeërs.

Ik zou het leuk vinden om jou eens te spreken.

Be blessed.

Hi Kees,

I so appreciate your analysis of Bob Dylan's lyrics from a faith perspective. Always insightful—and whether or not you are always on the mark, there is always another level of possible meaning to consider.

I wonder if you'd thought of writing about Red River Shore?

Greetings Kees,

I was excited to read your analysis of 'I and I'. So good, how good, so good!
I too have had my life transformed by the gospel for the last 40 years and turning 60 this year with a bundle of blessings behind me.
Dylan has been one of my inspirations through life, look forward to reading more of your insights,
in the love of Jesus,

Hello Kees

Nice web page you have. 🙂
I will soon come to the point, which is to find a nice, duch cover of "Make you feel my love".- Bob Dylan - on CD.
I found your page while looking for some help. A good, elderly friend of me - dutch - has been ill for several years, and of course he is very tired from this. And I think also he is so tired that it is difficult for him to connect with his own feelings.
So, I am thinking that I would like to find a beautiful cover of Dylans "Make you feel my love" - hoping and thinking it would do him good. His english is not so good, that is why I want a dutch cover. But as I do not speak/write dutch it is difficult for me to search for it on internet.
So - do you know a CD with a beautiful duch cover - may be sung by a woman?
I would be so happy if you could help me, and I think it would do a troubbled person good.
All the best from Synnev

Sir, I too am a Dylan "devotee". Read your analysis of "All Along the Watchtower", and it seems to be on target. The Thief and Joker on either side of Christ.

Visit my website,, is you get a chance.

Hello Kees. I found your analysis of Dylan's "Series of Dreams" and wanted to share my own with you. Mine only concerns one (or possibly two) lines in the song; specifically the one(s) you highlight in the text- "... dreams where the umbrella is folded..." (and possibly the one that follows).

My contention is that the lyric(s) could refer to the infamous "Umbrella Man"; the individual cited as a possible signaler to the JFK assassins in Dealey Plaza.

Here is a link to a blog that collects songs that relate to the assass
-ination, and has provided a space for people to submit arguments for songs not yet included. Mine is the first one, expounding on the connection between an image of a *folded* umbrella and its significance in re: the events of November 22, 1963.

Hope you find something of interest in this idea.
