Reply To: Analyze one of the supplementary Bible passages in light of the course content. Do you see evidence of the Hebraic map? Did anything about the passage surprise you? Was there any part of the passage that stuck out to you in particular?
Hi Austin – I appreciate your insight on the passage in I Kings 19. It is a humbling reminder of our brokenness and need of God’s help in the midst of physical suffering. I think living in a modern world with hundreds of ways to dull our pain (medically and otherwise) we have such a weakness to let physical suffering tempt us to sin. We are not used to suffering, and while modern medicine is a gift and we shouldn’t seek out suffering unnecessarily, Satan could certainly use physical weakness to tempt us. But as God demonstrates in the passage, His grace is sufficient for our weaknesses.
