"I do like that story but ending up in prison is pretty common for God's prophets.  Unfortunately for some like John the Baptist it doesn't end there."

"Couple things about that story in Kings: Differing political loyalties divide the two prophets involved. They are not apolitical; they are fully human beings with a strong disagreement between them. The prophet who tells his opponent that (contrary…"

My devotional reading today was from John’s gospel.  Chapter four starts with Jesus meeting a woman at a well in a town in Samaria.  I actually read the notes in my study Bible this time.  They led me to this history of how the Jews came to disrespect Samaritans:
