Sharpening the Sword (Throw back post that has been hiding for some time!)

They argued back and forth in front of Solomon, 23 until finally he said, “Both of you say this live baby is yours. 24 Someone bring me a sword.” A sword was brought, and Solomon ordered, 25 “Cut the baby in half!

Sacrifice The Goat (Part 3): Endgame
