1 Ch 1; Mark 14:32-72; Psalm 17
I wonder how we manage to read the Bible at all, if that is we are paying any attention.
Many it seems read it as it were failing to see what is going on. To put not too fine a point on it, if the people of God Understood, if the Saw the Kingdom of God, then there would be no scriptures. For almost the entirety of the Scriptural account, in the Old Testament is that of the rebellion of God’s people . . . and this continues into the new – we would have none of Paul’s letters if the early church Realised the hope to which it had been called.
And it is the people of God who accuse, abandon and crucify Christ.
How readily we line up with Peter, to deny that this is the case
how frequently we are undone
how infrequently do we notice
At least Peter saw what he had done
