We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

# 222 Hopes for a Show Dashed

By Arla, Mar 6 2019 02:00AM

Pilate grasps the opportunity to heal an old quarrel by sending Jesus to Herod. Pilate has no intention of condemning him.


Herod is happy to meet Jesus, whom he's heard much about. His sensitivity and guilt have greatly dulled in the past two years since killing John, but he still hopes to clear his mind and conscience by saving this prophet. He is sure Jesus will do whatever is necessary to save himself. He has no idea...


The priests and elders accompany him, and all begin talking loudly.


Herod silences them and demands Jesus' hands be released, rebuking their harsh treatment. Looking at him, he knows the priests have brought him from envy. He begins to question Jesus, but Jesus doesn't respond. So Herod commands the sick and crippled to be brought in. He promises Jesus freedom for doing a miracle.


The leaders are in a panic. They've seen his miracles. Their plans are dissolving before their eyes!


Jesus gives no indication he has heard Herod. He can't do anything to save himself. He must go through this as any man would have to. And Herod had the best of prophets give him evidence--more won't make any difference.


Finally Herod gets it; Jesus isn't going to perform. Furious over what he perceives as insult, he labels him an imposter, even though impressed that he's God-like; and again, soldiers restrain crazed people. Herod has a gorgeous robe put on Jesus, and mocks him; people and soldiers joining in with horrible abuse. And then he's sent back to Pilate.


Luke 23:8-12
