In this episode, Tim and Jon cover a lot of ground on the biblical theme of Day of the Lord. The story picks up with King Solomon in ancient Israel. He is considered to be one of the richest and wisest men who ever lived. But as Tim and Jon discuss, things aren't always as they seem and Solomon has an ugly demise. To the ancient prophets, Solomon's downfall is viewed as a "Day of the Lord."
Then Tim and Jon talk about the ancient kingdoms of the Assyrians, the Persians the Babylonians. Each one of these kingdoms were barbaric and cruel, but the Bible writers believed that God was using them to accomplish his purposes.
Tim and Jon conclude with setting the stage for the Roman empire and Christ's entrance on the scene. They also reflect on the possibility that there are Babylons among us today.
P.S. Tim and Jon will be in Nashville next week, Tuesday April 25 and are hosting a free meetup! They will be premiering their new theme video on The Day of the Lord! Interested in attending? Get more details on www.thebibleproject.com
