GN-Day191 2 Kings 9–10; Psalm 127; John 12:20-50

2KINGS 9-10:
Yesterday we heard one of my favorite Old Testament stories: The one about the three lepers and the famine in Samaria. Elijah's prophecy was so dramatically fulfilled, and the scoffing officer could be a parable for modern times. Then we heard how the woman from Shunem returned and was blessed a second time. The narrative switched briefly to the kingdom of Judah and Ahaziah's reign.

PSALM 127:
About ‘children/sons’ in v. 3, NET’s note says this:

Some prefer to translate this word with the gender-neutral “children,” but “sons” are plainly in view here, as the following verses make clear. Daughters are certainly wonderful additions to a family, but in ancient Israelite culture, sons were the “arrows” that gave man security in his old age, for they could defend the family interests at the city gate, where the legal and economic issues of the community were settled.

This psalm would not be considered politically correct in today’s world. Let’s understand it with a historical perspective learn from it.

JOHN 12b:
Following the raising of Lazarus, the Jewish leaders became even more firm in their plans to kill Jesus.

GNT Translation note:

2Kings 9:22 “Are you coming in peace?” Joram asked him. “How can there be peace,” Jehu answered, “when we still [hold on to//have] all the witchcraft and idolatry that your mother Jezebel started?”

28 His officials [put//took] his body [in a chariot and took it//0] back to Jerusalem [0//in a chariot] and buried him in the royal tombs in David's City.

====

Ps. 127:2 It is useless to work so hard for a living, getting up early and going to bed late. For the Lord provides for those he loves, [even] while they are asleep.
3 [Sons//Children] is a gift from the Lord; they are a real blessing.
====

John 12:24 I am telling you the truth: a grain of wheat remains no more than a single grain unless it [falls//is dropped] into the ground and dies. If it does die, then it produces many grains.
25 Those who love their [life in this world//own life] will lose it; [but] those who [have no regard for//think nothing of (NLT)//hate] their [0//own] life in this world will keep it for life eternal.

42 Even then, many Jewish authorities believed in Jesus; but because of the Pharisees, they did not talk about it openly, so as not to be expelled from the synagogue[s].
