There are times, like when I read verses 29-32, that I suspect Jesus was an introvert.

It is so wise and energizing to get away from the crowds when accomplishing important goals.  But it seems to be a discipline that is easier for introverts.

I wonder if extraverts would agree with this assessment.

Head on a Platter

We learn about how John the Baptist met his demise in verses 14-28.

How weird that the girl who danced asked for such a gruesome prize.

And why is it that when kings in the Bible offer up to half their kingdoms, people never take them up on the offer?

Don’t make a promise you’re not willing to keep!  Don’t set yourself up by offering an open-ended promise.
