Title: Ahab and War
Scripture: 1 Kings 20:1-43
Speaker: Andrew Jones,

“I have no interest in the cult of war, but movies like Dunkirk occasion profound doubts about my own lack of courage. It’s the ubiquitous ordinariness of these soldiers that gets me every time: carpet salesmen and pipe fitters who answer a horrific call. Would I? Is there courage and fortitude and sacrifice deep down in this leisured, coddled soul? Could my comrades count on me?” - James K.A. Smith
"The impression we get from 1-2 Kings is not that God is a stingy disciplinarian with an anger problem. If anything, the God of 1-2 Kings is irresponsibly indulgent towards his people, a God who does not seem to realize that he cannot run the world without a dose of law and order. By the time Judah is sent into Babylonian exile in 2 Kings 25, we are not saying, “My, what a harsh God”; if we read attentively, we are saying, “It’s about time! What took so long?” The offense of the theology proper of 1-2 Kings is not that God is angry with the innocent. The offense is...the offense of God’s mercy, the offense of Yahweh’s unearthly patience with the irascible and unresponsive." - Peter Leithart, 1 & 2 Kings
>> You can never exhaust God’s grace.
>> You can reject God’s grace.
