comment Who was a greater king: Hezekiah or Josiah?
@AffableGeek I'm, of course, not really asking for a ranking of the kings; just interested in how the apparent contradiction can be resolved.

comment Is Keller's view of the father in the Prodigal Son parable a reasonable interpretation?
I've only heard his sermon series on The Prodigal God, not read the book; but Keller's perspective I don't think is too different from what you've written here. He sees both brothers as wanting their father's things rather than their father, and I'm pretty sure he argues that the elder brother should have been working to reconcile the younger brother back to the family just as in the other two parables (coin and sheep) someone seeks what was lost.

comment Did Jephthah actually sacrifice his daughter?
@FrankLuke I guess I'd say the ending of her father's line would be part of the tragedy in her death, but also just that it was considered a disgrace for a woman to remain barren (cf. Gen. 30:23, Ruth 1:12-13, 1 Sam. 1:6-7, Luke 1:25) because her felt telos was bound up with providing children (esp. sons). Naomi is hopeless not because she has lost her sons (though of course she weeps for that), but because she cannot provide new sons for her daughters-in-law.
