Discussion for 2 Maccabees 2

  • Gwendolyn R. Snider for verse 13
    All the Apocryphal Books Are helpful. Especially Maccabees, still reading presently at 2 Maccabees 13 . All gives 400 silent years of insight of Our Lords continual disappointment in our terrible behavior as well as his continual mercy. Christ could 've ended all humanity and earth instead of being crucified. His Grace and Mercy afforded all humanity opportunity to know Heavenly Father- God 's true image - to worship Him - not as in a graven image manner. Also He suffered Bled and died in the likeness of His Only Begotten Son Adonai Yeshua And He Adonai Yeshua in the likeness of his brethren before and Afer Him. Howbeit His death was cause - worthy He had done no sins which made His torture and punishment of Death worse than His brethern were in 2 Maccabees 5:-6:. But Was for our those who obey and worship His Father in Spirit and In Truth deliverance from future torture and the punishment of eternal pains in death.

    I find the books of Maccabees fascinating the fact that men are looking for the arc and it says in Macc chapter 2 verse 7 that it shall remain unknown until God regathers his people and receive them unto mercy
