10/18 Reading (1 Samuel 31; 2 Corinthians 3)

1 Samuel 31: Saul dies in battle with the Philistines in this chapter. It’s pretty brutal actually. After he is wounded by archers he impales himself with his own sword. His armor-bearer does the same to himself. All of Saul’s sons were also killed. The philistines remove Saul’s head and take it and his body back to their temple and put them on display. Thankfully, men from an Israelite town, Jabesh-gilead, snuck in and took Saul’s head and body and treated him properly.

2 Corinthians 3: I find this reading interesting and tricky. I find it interesting because of the consistent comparison Paul offers between himself and Moses. I find it tricky for the exact same reason. To me it sounds like Paul is saying that the commandments shared by Moses in Exodus are a thing of the past. Not necessarily that we don’t follow them anymore, but…I don’t know. It seems like this chapter is more focused on the positive than the negative. May want to reach out to others on this one.
