2 Kings 13 - 14

2 Kings
2 KingsSteve Gregg

In this biblical account, Steve Gregg reflects on the reign of Joash and Amaziah, two kings who failed to depart from the sins of Jeroboam and worshiped idols. Despite the miracles performed by the prophet Elisha, the people of Israel did not adhere to his teachings. Gregg notes that God decides when and how miracles occur, and although Elisha was revered during his lifetime, he was not listened to or heeded. The story also features a confrontation between Amaziah and Jehoash, in which Jehoash rightly rebukes Amaziah for challenging him, comparing Amaziah to a thistle trying to boss around a cedar tree.
