GN-Day193 2 Kings 13–14; Psalm 129; John 13:12-38

2KINGS 13-14:

Yesterday we heard of Athaliah's seven-year reign over Judah, of how Joash was saved from being killed, and of Jehoida's successful plot to end Athaliah's reign. Josh turned out to be sorta good, but disappointing at the end of his reign. And it is interesting to note that the people who worked on restoring the temple evidently had more integrity than the priests.

PSALM 129:

This is another Psalm of Ascent and another nationalistic psalm. In this year’s readings, in just a few days we will begin hearing the parts of Israel’s history where this psalm writer could have received the scars on his back. (I like how the GNT shows that the scars on the back might be taken figuratively for the whole race, instead of personally for just the writer. But one just listening to a reading of this chapter will probably not pick up on that detail.) In our time, this psalm gives us permission to pray that the Lord’s enemies do not prosper.

JOHN 13b:

John spends several chapters in the upper room, and this is the first. We hear the most complete account here about Judas, and only here do we find the story of Jesus washing the disciple's feet. This is another time where we see Jesus consciously acting out a parable for us. And because of that event, the interchange with Peter is more poignant, although John takes pity on Peter and does not include details of that conversation that are found elsewhere.

GNT Translation notes:

2Kings 13:23 but the Lord was kind and merciful to them. He would not let them be destroyed but helped them because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. [The Lord//He] has never forgotten his people.
Ps. 129:8 No one who passes by [those people (enemies of ours)//0] will say, “May the Lord bless you! We bless you in the name of the Lord.”
John 13:24 Simon Peter motioned to him and said, “Ask him whom he is talking about.”

31 After Judas had left, Jesus said, “Now [My glory as the Son of Man//the Son of Man's glory] is revealed; now God's glory is revealed through [Me//him].

32 And if [My Father, God’s//God's] glory is revealed through [Me//him], then God will reveal [my glory as the Son of Man//the glory of the Son of Man in himself], and he will do so at once.
