-2 Kings 6:28-29-
-Then he asked her, “What’s the matter?”
She answered, “This woman said to me, ‘Give up your son so we may eat him today, and tomorrow we’ll eat my son.‘
So we cooked my son and ate him. The next day I said to her, ‘Give up your son so we may eat him,’ but she had hidden him.”
I don’t know what to do with this. I have already ridden so far out on my horse this year, going through the Bible everyday, lacing it with my own intensely personal look at feet and human sexuality and I really did not know that a story like this was here and I don’t know what to do with it.
I mean, it has context – but it’s Israel Samaria.
Am I turning the Bible into a spectacle? If I were a journalist, would I report something that was dangerous to society?
I have to ask myself, what am I looking for?
How is this entry going to help me? I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
I mean no disrespect but 2 Kings is…. Very difficult.
