Hope in the Rubble (2 Kings 25)

By June 27th, 20232 Kings, Talks

In the last chapter of 2 Kings, it  seems  like all hope is undone. For many years, God has been making promises to  his people, and  they have slowly become realised: for a land, to become a  great nation, for the temple, for a king. But in chapter 25, one-by-one, each of these is undone. It seems like all of God’s promises have failed, and God’s people are in devastation. But in the final story of  the book, we get a glimmer of hope, that maybe God’s promises still have a hope of being fulfilled. The final king in the line  of David is being cared for, even in exile. God loves to give hope in  the darkest places.
