Two scoundrels

Hello, God has given me something in 1 Kings 21:10 which says,

“But seat two scoundrels opposite him, and have them testify that he has cursed both God and the king. Then take him out and stone him to death.”

This reminds me of Jesus, Mathew 28:59-61 says,

“Now the chief priests and the whole Council were seeking false testimony against Jesus that they might put him to death, but they found none, though many false witnesses came forward. At last two came forward and said, “This man said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to rebuild it in three days.'”

People were trying to find false testimony about Jesus, so that he could die, and another resemblance this man (Naboth) has with Jesus, is that they both had two scoundrels, or sinners, on opposite sides of them, Mathew 27:38-40 says,

 

“Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.bAnd those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”

This man is very much like Jesus, only the man (Naboth) had to be killed in order to be taken from, they stoned him so that king Ahab could take the vineyard, because Naboth would not sell it to him, or exchange it for a different one, but Jesus gave it up, He gave His life for us, and He gave us His mercy and His grace.

Peace and Love, Joy Cleveland
