06/04/19: Acts 2:1-47; Psalm 122:1-9; Proverbs 16:19-20
I am a huge fan of comic strips and two of my favorite are “B.C.” and “Wizard of Id,” both written by Johnny Hart who often embedded religious themes.
In one “Wizard” the king confronts the “Friar” with a question — “I heard that your king descended into the depths of hell. Is that true?” The friar’s response “He did … but only to pick up the keys!”
Acts 2: 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.
