    What does it mean that the King who built God's Temple looked out on the world and wrote, “Meaningless!

    Death by Suicide    Why is "committed suicide" wrong or hurtful?   Biblical examples from internet:   Abimelech, mortally wounded by a millstone, ordered his armor-bearer to dispatch him to avoid the suggestion he had been slain by the woman who had thrown the stone (Judg 9:52-54); the prophet Ahithophel hanged himself after betraying David (2Sam 17:23); Zimri burned down his house around himself after military defeat (1Kgs 16:18); and the more familiar stories of Saul and his armor-bearer (1Sam 1:1-6; 1Chr 10:1-6), Samson, (Judg 16:28), and, of course, Jesus’ disciple Judas—although it is only in Matthew’s Gospel where he kills himself (Matt 27:3-5; compare with Acts 1:18).

    Jim & Abby examine the prohibitions on killing another.  From Cain and Abel where all they had was the knowledge of good & evil, to the Ten Commandments which prohibit either murder or killing.  Next they struggle with reconciling such prohibitions with the long list of offenses punishable by death and the instruction for total war.
