Be able to discuss and write about Naboth's Vineyard & Ahab. What injustice occurs? What would have prevented it? How are we called to respond?
In 1 Kings 21, Naboth owned a vineyard next to the palace of King Ahab at Jezreel. The king wanted it to grow vegetables so he offered to buy it or exchange it for a better one but Naboth declined. Queen Jezebel had Naboth convicted on false charges in which he was stoned to death. The injustice that occurs where a dictator steals a man's land, and continues to tell the people that he was in the wrong, and had his followers kill him. What could've prevented it is if people did not have greed. We are called to respond with forgiveness, and to understand that revenge nor punishment will reverse an injustice, only forgiveness will.
