1 Kings 13:1-34 A Perplexing Tale

I entitled the sermon, “A perplexing Tale” because it is more than confusing. We have a prophet, who for the most part is good and faithful but does “disobey” God’s expressed command and then dies and is buried in Israel. We have a wily old prophet who lies and seems to get away with it. We have a king who is morally and spiritually bankrupt and he gets a reprieve. All up a hard passage to understand. In this sermon I concentrate on the “Man of God from Judah.” In the following one I look at the old prophet who I call, “The Wily Old Prophet.”
