Luke 9:37-62. A day after the Transfigurationon the mount Jesus healed a boy with an evil spirit. The disciples argued about who would be the greatest, and as an object lesson Jesus picked up a little child and said: “He who is least among all, he is the greatest“. Jesus spoke against sectarianism, and on their way to Jerusalem they met Samaritan opposition. Finally Jesus told the disciples there is a cost of following Him.
2 Samuel 21. David made a deal with the Gibeonites, and during a number of battles, some of the Philistine giants were killed, among them Goliath (not the one you think).
