Sibble Sunday: Payback (1 Kings 2–4)

Onwards! Meant to get closer to on time this week, but, ah, well, life is sometimes busy.

Short snarky summary: Solomon consolidates power by killing everyone and impresses everyone with his baby-bisecting skills.

Alas, Obama didn’t order Dick Cheney executed.


Sibble Sunday: The Great Pretender (1 Kings 1)

OK, so maybe I deserved a week off for finishing Samuel? Nah, I took my week off and then some already. Now we’re into the book of Kings, which tracks the doings of the post-Davidic monarchs of Judah.

Short snarky summary: while David is slowly wasting away, the remainder of his offspring squabble over the throne.

Don’t forget, a few of them are already dead.
