Text: John 21:20=22
Webster’s Dictionary defines resentment as “a feeling of indignant displeasure.” Resentment creates the feeling of having been passed over in favor of someone or something else. It is a mixture of envy, pride and anger. It is a powerful force that can damage the spiritual life of a person or a church. Scripture warns about it again and again (there are at least four examples already in Genesis, the first book of the Bible). Peter’s questioning Jesus about the Beloved Disciple is a sign of resentment. Jesus’ response is a reality check for Peter: “What is that to you?” (John 21:21).

This section concludes the history of King Ahab of Israel who was more corrupt than all the kings before him (I Kings 16:33). Despite a brief moment of repentance he continues his path of degradation. The only hope in this section is the Word of the Lord which continues to come to the prophets.
