Better than Fiction

Posted by Matt Lane on December 21st, 2008 filed in Bible Reading, Violence in the Bible

So my journey through the Bible has me in Judges these days.  Recently I was reading in chapter 3 and came upon a fun story about a fat man and a left handed assassin.  You can’t make this stuff up.  Who says the Bible is boring to read?

The people of Israel had once again “… did what was evil in the sight of the LORD…” and and the people were then servants of this rather large king for 18 years.  The people finally called out to God who in turn raised up a guy to take out the king.  I’m telling you, there have been many movies made from this text.  Check it out for yourself.

    Too many funny thoughts
    1. That is one fat man
    2. Getting killed on the pot
    3. “cool chamber” this is what I call mine
    4. “dung came out” — scared the crap out of him or killed the crap out of him

    I also have this mental image of the servants opening the door…what did they think they would find? Walking in on the king taking a dump does not seem like a way to live long.
