Psalms: 72


1 Kings: The thing to remember is that at that time the “prophet” may or may not have been appointed by God but rather by the king as in this case. The irony is that prophesies are so unspecific as to be reinterpreted more favorably when the event is past. “Go… for the LORD will give it into the king’s hand.” (v. 6) Yes, but to which king? Micaiah, never one to mince words, said: “If you ever return safely, the LORD has not spoken through me…Mark my words, all you people.” (v. 28)

Gospel: Matthew 4:18-25

New Testament: 1 Corinthians 2:1-13

Old Testament: 1 Kings 22:1-28
