The King and Unforgivable Sin

Our society doesn’t like to think much about death. We prefer to block it out. As David Zahl, the director of Mockingbird, put it, “We don’t talk about death. We don’t acknowledge it. We don’t see it. We send people away to suffer it. And when a death does come, we do our utmost to ensure that it has the least possible impact on our normal lives—even though nothing is more normal than death.”

Death is the reality we all will face. But how will we approach it? This oracle to Jerusalem shows us three ways that people face death, and offers us the perspective from above we need to approach death with confidence.
