Four Spiritual Messages on "3121"

With the new vinyl reissue, I figured it was a good time to delve into the Biblical and universal messages on the album: http://www.apurpledayinde...itual.html

Thanks for this. I didn’t catch the quote on Love. I learn something new about his art every day.

They really are. When asked in 2015 on Twitter his favorite Bible verse Prince replied Psalm 31:21. At the 2006 BET Awards at the start of the song he said "Read Psalms. That's where it is." I recall there also being talk about the numbers on the back of his tunic and it being a possible tetragrammaton for the name Jehovah. It's very fascinating.

I was wondering if that was true about Psalms! Can you find that tweet for me?

You're welcome! If I come across any others I will let you know. smile It appears that he was doing a short Q&A on Twitter and was taking random questions. I also saw that a fan had sent him a tweet quoting Phil 4:7 and Prince retweeted it. Here's the link to the retweet https://twitter.com/IAmJe...0682826752
