Isaiah 22:19–23. Shebna was probably a leading force in encouraging King Hezekiah to adopt a disastrous foreign policy, and he was replaced by Eliakim—an act that the prophet ascribes to God. Eliakim is basically made the secretary of state, and the investiture ceremony included a ritual placing of the palace keys on his shoulder as a symbol of total authority.

Romans 11:33–36. This short act of praise is a reminder that God alone knows what the plan is for the cosmos and for each of us.


Matthew 16:13–20. Simon son of Jonah, who may be the most unlikely candidate for the job among the apostles, is given the nickname “Rocky” (Peter) and is proclaimed the rock on which Jesus will build the Church.
