I see Parallels

by Kenneth

When I read the Bible stories I see similarities between the people there and here.
Adam and Eve had the problem of trust and temptation. It is the same today when people tell us that someone else is not to be trusted.
Abraham and Lot had a similar problem, with a twist, because it is explicit that Abraham gave favor to Lot but that his well intentioned good will contributed to Lot's downfall.
David and Saul had very great difficulties. Trust is displayed here as well, but a trust that involved power and government and authority.
David and Absalom had "trust" issues. Eventually, the son tried to overthrow the father and a third party, Joab, thinking to save David, kills Absalom.
These stories of the Bible are played again and again throughout history.
