Another question is why flint? They knew about metal knives.

Also, Josh handled a great many penises in his time. A couple hundred dead Philistines and the peckers of every male of Isreal. He got around. And he was not gay.

I think you mean David. This was in my very first pop quiz ever:

6. In your own opinion, which was the better of the two:
a. David's gift of two hundred foreskins (which he got by murdering 200 random Philistines) to his lovely bride-to-be (I Samuel 18:27)
b. Samson's gift of thirty sets of clothes (which he got by murdering thirty random Philistines) to his wedding guests.
Be creative. Extra credit for using all our vocabulary words from last week (horrific, humorous, romantic, atrocity, tender, sweet, thoughtful).

b. I would like socks. After all this is the Sockratic Sunday School.

Doc, how do I make sure David stays off my Christmas list? That's a horrible gift.

Oops. Dave. I have no idea where that came from.

Chas, I didn't know that. Learn something new every day.

Why horrible? I think David's gift of 200 foreskins to Michal, his lovely bride-to-be was very touching and thoughtful. It set off a transient fashion trend in ancient Israel for the "chemise du penis" designed by David himself. For the less well-to-do, the "thong du schlong" had a brief vogue.

RE: Doc's erratic Subday School (consistently preaching the Word since 2013)
So, I came across something new a couple of days ago. YHWH and human sacrifice. Everybody knows the story of Abraham being told by God to sacrifice his son, Isaac to "prove" his love for God. Most people are also aware of the sacrifice by Jephthah of his only daughter to YHWH for granting him victory in battle. But, there is a third story in the Bible that reinforces the blood-thirstiness of YHWH.

In 2 Samuel 21, we read of a three year famine that struck Israel. David inquired of the Lord and was told that the famine was the result of the previous king, Saul's attempt to kill the Gibeonites (a people not of Israelite stock and an incident not recorded in the Bible). Apparently, the nation of Israel had promised to spare the Gibeonites but for some reason Saul went back on his word. For this sin, the nation of Israel was punished with a three year famine well after Saul's death. Makes sense, right?

Anyhoo, David called the Gibeonites and asked them what they wanted to do. They replied that since it was Saul's fault, the obvious answer was that Saul's family must pay the price. So, 7 of Saul's male descendants (by sheer coincidence, the next of kin to Saul and the next in line to inherit the throne) were "killed and their bodies exposed before the Lord" (verse 6). "And after that God heeded the prayer for the land" (verse 14).

So, with one stroke, David eliminated the threats to the throne and solved the famine problem. With human sacrifice. Neat, no?

Good governance (at least in the way that I teach it) can be described as the balancing of three factors:
Benefits Realisation
Risk Optimisation
Resource Optimisation.

I'd say that David ticked all three boxes.

Good job.
