This week we introduce ourselves to Jeremiah, the Reverse Moses, and an epic, ironic, mythological indictment of Israelite idolatry. Jeremiah leaks into the Matthew reading this week as Jesus is compared to the prophet in a Matthean addition to the original account from Mark.

Also: David is definitely being a hero honest and no he's nowhere near the massacre of Israel and her king by the nation that gave him asylum and yes okay he's going to be king next so hurrah for the providence of God!
