Bible Commentary for Tobit 2:10

Discussion for Tobit 2:10

  • John Lynch on Tobit 2:10
    I found out about Tobit when I was a teenager. I think my brother told me because he was into the Grateful Dead. Apparently they got the title of their band from Tobit.

    The dead ; who were left in the street to rot after they were killed by the wicked king, were grateful that one of their country men took them and gave them a burial. He even risked his life to do so. I was never that crazy about the Dead's music , but I sure liked that story. It took a considerable amount of time to find it.

    I'm of the humble opinion that if this gentleman did exist, and he did do as the story stated; then-

    THE Lord was like" Wow! This guy is so cool that I'm going to put him in my book!"

    I dont know... I like this story. I know doesn't it follow the general theme of the of the other books. They point to the messiah, or the nation of Israel, the people. This is story about poor suffering Jew in Diaspora who did something remarkable for his brethren.

    I found out about Enoch when I was 12. Initially, I didn't take Enoch seriously. A year ago I re-read Mythology stories; honestly, my eyes are open never realized those stories were true sometimes we have to keep hearing the lesson; before we learn absolute, Biblical Truth.

    So where in the heck did Tobit get into the King James Bible? 1611? I must be seeing things....
