"You're listening to knowing faith a podcast of the village church. Wurley joined by my co host Jin Wilken in JD English. Listen, we've loved getting to do some audience interaction on Twitter, Instagram social media into an attempt to try to kind of collect all of that. We want to start using the hashtag knowing faith podcast today's episode. We're going to be taking a look at second. Same three through five where we see that the relates of folks. Get in shank David's day. Join the discussion. All right. So what's what did you do last night? JT? I went to the George Bush center, and it was a celebration of George H W Bush kinda remembering legacy so forty three was there celebrating and honoring his dad forty one. And then they had some kind of staffers and friends that were around forty one either during his time in Texas in Houston or time in office or time afterwards. It was fascinating. I bet that was really cool the person who was most excited to hear from was Jim Baker. Okay. Who was his best friend for sixty years. He served as chief of staff served as secretary of state. I believe he was also director of CIA at some point. So you lots of stories around that. But his resume sounds pretty terrible. Right. But you turned me onto a book years ago called the gatekeepers, and he is kind of a key is when you think of the now, it's really interesting I read Anna Karenina over no. If somebody poss- somebody emailed JT, an I throwing Syria shade about our comments about about you that I said something better, you said, they were they were throwing shade on you because you're making fun of us for talking about first and second you being one book, and then immediately after that you talked about liking parts of Anna Karenina. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's a little bit hypocritical. For that. Are they do in cases any future shade thrown about the fact that JT attended event at the George Bush library AT are you trying to make a political statement with the story of any kind? Yeah. Qualification gatekeepers is a really good book. So it's ten it's the story of of the tenure ten chiefs of staff, and basically how they operated in that role. And you don't really think about this until I didn't think about it much the book, there's one of the most powerful people in Washington, even more. So than most elected officials, they control the schedule. They control the schedule the control what makes to the president's desk, KOMO doesn't. So this guy particular Tim Baker was friends for sixty years for George H W Bush, and I have to say more than or than the stories of him being chief of staff or secretary of state. What was fascinating is just what it meant to be a friend for sixty years. It was just the way he still spoke of his friend the way he was there when he when he passed away. I mean, it was just it was fascinating. And it was a good picture of the friendship of what it means to have a community around the cares for you through every season of life. Yeah. I bet that was really awesome. It was something for sixty years. Can we make a friendship act blood oath? I got news for you ain't gonna be around sixty years. Jay that don't want you to say that. So you're saying incredibly fun for some people. Are researchers have said that the person that will live the one fifty is probably alive today. I don't think well, well from parks and rec have you got to the place where I've gotten to the place that I know what character you're. John raphael. Oh my gosh. But I am. My wife is watching it all the way three right now for the first time, and she was like she was like, hey, I kind of feel like sometimes you're a little bit like John rouse via. What? Yeah. Prone to hyperbole your that your church. Promo. Yeah. I'm just out there. I love we just to episode where Tom's like, you know, they start entertainment seven twenty and he's like, but it's failing. And he goes, well, you know, I always heard you have to spend money to make money, and I don't know how we felt all. Yeah. That's so true. Well, you know, what I I think it's really exciting that I think it's really exciting that you've got to go to that last night. Because a lot of people don't know that you really you. You're live. Not sure what you're about to say, right? You your life through a west wing prison? Do very much a bat like that kind of vent is very the westering. Soundtrack was playing in the background walked into the building. Here's new of course in you like to think. But you're really I've always said, you're really Leo mcgarry. I receive both of those comments those my favorite characters. So well, okay. We're talking about second same today. And we're talking about people getting shanked in second same because you don't get in doesn't take very long before you get into second Sima before people getting murked and the story like, that's, you know, this word Merk now I rely on you to teach me all the new words. Well, I've got other new lingo murked. It's where somebody's getting murdered. It's often used in. You know, hip, hop culture. Which is something. I'm very familiar with the guys in the bay right now are literally hanging there like they're like, please stop this. So I'm going to move forward. Okay. So in second Samuel, we get into the store, and we started looking at this last week or the last time that we talked about second seen the last session. We were talking about second. Same temperatures one through three we were talking about how there there is a passing. That's going on. There's a passing of the torch. And that this is significant for redemptive history. But it's really significant. And of course of second Samuel for this kingship, right because something biggest happened one king fading and another king emerging. And we saw that in one and two, but it really comes to the the surface in chapter three verse one, right? Yeah. So who's kingdom is fading whose kingdom is rising. Second single. Well, we see the kingdom of Saul growing weaker and weaker and the kingdom of David growing stronger and stronger, and then you're going to see that basically that theme is carried out through. I mean, really chapter seven it goes beyond chapter seven, right? You certainly see that reiterated over and over again. And it's it's easy. Maybe for us to forget as we're looking at the historical books that saw that Saul is the first king of Israel. Right. Yeah. So it's like, he's the first guy. It's like, I don't know if you're familiar with the musical Hamilton. But one of the big things that's happening in the course of Hamilton is that George Washington had been the first president. And there were these different. She lives like like he should just essentially like continue to be the first president forever. But he, but he kind of feels the need to step away. Saul doesn't go out like that. No. He doesn't. He does not solve. This is not a voluntary I'm stepping away from the kingship or I make way for the new anointed king. It's not. It's all dies. Yeah. He's killed. Well, he kills himself. Right. It's it's a it's a terrible ending to a sad story. And I think the, you know, we talked about this previously about the idea of David as a man after God's own heart, actually, a lahar had a lot of positive responses from you guys. So thanks for that. But it was clear. About. That that man after God's own heart is really the sense of that phrase is not that he David had a special warm place in God's heart. It's that he's the man of God's choosing contrast between the Saul as the man of the people choosing and David is the man of God's choosing. And so when we see the one house grow weaker and the other house score stronger, we have an impulse based on the way we've heard these stories taught for years to say, oh, well, the house of David is prospering because David is amazed balls if you still holy righteous he fears the Lord look at what he did with Goliath. And he's yeah. And what's interesting is when you if you're paying attention to some of the cues that are in the text you start to realize that the author is keeps dropping in these little red flags all the way along like, for example in chapter three. We get a list of the sons born today at Hebron, you begin to realize that David is still multiplying wives and multiplying concubines. And we read that we're like, oh, that's great. And so on the one. Handed is showing that his house is growing stronger. But it's also showing that he is he is increasingly moving toward being a king like the nation's instead of a king. Unlike the nations, and so we we need to give ourselves permission in these stories that are leading up to David even even David ascending to the throne over all of Israel to view him as human flawed, and I think this is such an absolutely crucial point because of just how prevalent David stories are when we're telling the stories of the Old Testament. And you've said for a long time particularly comes up with the story of David and Bethsheba share. But that there is something to this over emphasis on well, David was such a noble guy. And the Bethsheba story is like the going south of this guy who was on such a holy trajectory in. But the reality is what you're saying is really important for understanding just how broken David is from the very beginning. That he isn't somehow some sort of like ultra Perla tive holier than thou better than breaks all the moulds coming now. That's not to say that he isn't the man of God's choosing right is. But it's not because he's great. Yeah. Which is also of greatness, we'll see some actually how all election works too. So sometimes we talk and we'll talk about these figures in the Old Testament. Abraham we do the same thing with Abraham law. We do the same thing with Noah where it's like, well, you know, look man, God chose the righteous one. It's like actually never it. Just never case now God chooses people, and he does make them righteous. But he doesn't use them because the righteous, and I think that the point that you've made about got a lot of feedback on that as well from people who are like that was really has not mind, by the way an impact let's make a note for those infamous show notes that we can link to the article that's great talks about that. Perfect. So we get into second same three and we encounter this guy. Abner? Yeah. Who's abner? Why does he matter Abner lead Saul's army and somebody who is making Saul stronger and stronger, and I think the exact relationship isn't. He like, he's general. Yeah. That's what it was. But wasn't he's who's he related to. He's a Senator. That's what it was.

"Senator John Holden. Now in the chairs position. Senator from Ohio Republican Rob Portman president today. I wanna talk about a loss of the great American. I wanna talk about George H W Bush. I was just watching on C span. Coverage of what's going on in the rotunda right now, there are hundreds of people crowded around his casket paying tribute to this great man, they've been there all day. They'll be there all night friends of mine from Ohio are here in town. Who never met him. But knew of him. And are inspired by him. We're all inspired by George Bush. Did it all he was a war hero youngest naval pilot at age eighteen shot down over the Pacific. He was the last president by the way to serve in combat. He was also a member of the United States Congress and proud of that. That a successful business leader in Texas. He was an ambassador to the United Nations. He was director. He was on void to China. The first one he was vice president United States, and he was president, of course, during one of the most momentous times in our nation's history. What a life. In his absence. Our country's losing a lifelong patriot, a guiding voice and really the embodiment of the very best of America. For me. President Bush was also my mentor. I was very blessed early in my career to have been able to work for him. He brought me into his White House. When I was a young man trying to figure out my way in life. And I would not be in this crazy business politics. But for him. Not just because he gave me opportunities to work for him. But because he showed me. You could do this work of public service and politics with honor and dignity and respect. He showed that nice guys can finish first. He showed that his approach. Kinder and gentler as he would call it in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight was something that indeed achieve here, even in the halls of congress. So I have any special reason to be so grateful. Also, sad about his departure because I relied on him for advice and counsel, and he rarely gave it proactively. But when asked always had the wisdom of years and judgment that so many of us will miss so badly. He took a chance on me as a young lawyer from Cincinnati, Ohio to commend his White House counsel to the president took a chance on me to join his legislative affairs team to be director of the White House office of legislative affairs to be Frank. I was not qualified for either job. I had only worked on the hill briefly as an intern. I was not nearly as. Distinguish the other members of legal team who had been mostly supreme court clerks. But it just made me work all the harder to try to earn his trust and his respect. He didn't just give me a job though. He taught me about being a leader. A public servant being a better husband and father. He showed me what certain leadership meant when it looked like in practice. And I try to work every day. Live up to that example. One of the most decent and honorable people. I've ever met politics or otherwise. He saw himself as a servant. That's what motivated him. He saw himself as a public servant when he signed up to become a young navy pilot flying dangerous bombing missions that sense of service duty and patriotism was why years later after a successful business career he decided to put it on the line runs the United States Congress, by the way, I've noticed this week. There's been a lot of discussion about all of his successes, and there's so many. But one thing people might forget is that he was also resilient. He had setbacks in his life. Certainly the death of his beloved daughter, Robin. And a young age was one. But he ran for the Senate twice in state of Texas and lost in give up you bounce back. He was resilient. He's tough. When he was asked to serve as UN ambassador. He took up that task because of his devotion to service when he was asked to chair the Republican National Committee during pickling time for the Republican party, not a task most people wanted to take you took it on. When he was asked to become the first on voided, China, again, a big challenge the right thing to do for the country, and of course, into CIA. He's stepped into a difficult situation. Morale was low and turn things around. When he was appointed director back in nineteen seventy six there have been a lot of hearings here on Capitol Hill. They were called the church is named after Senator church. TA was under fire big gun. And route was low. It was a difficult period. He stepped in precisely because of that. And during his tenure. At the Central Intelligence Agency. He made the CIA stronger, he built a special bond with the employee's. You put some reforms in place that were important widely credited by everyone is having restored a sense of pride in that important agency Senator Rob Portman I'd heard that repeatedly. And when I got elected to congress in one thousand nine hundred four by the way with the help of president, George H W Bush and Barbara Bush. Came to speak and helped out on the campaign by just lending their good names. Bush even. In a radio ad for me that I think is probably the reason I one she was probably the most popular person in America tonight. But when I got elected I looked at the complex in northern Virginia, then called Langley still in Langley Virginia was not named after any one. And I had heard so much from people at the agency about their respect for him career people people would work there for years and proposed the idea of naming the CIA after him and proposed legislation to do that. In one thousand nine hundred nine today that headquarters renamed under that legislation to George Bush center for intelligence. I remember being at the ceremony with them when the naming was changed and just the love and respect that he had from the people at that agency. I remember him telling stories including. Stories about why he took the job and how much he respected the people that are in the work. They did. And how many respects they were on the front lines for all of us? Remember stories being told about him, including one I will never forget, which isn't directors for years had gone into the CIA and then taking their own private elevator up their office, which makes sense. Big job. Bush wouldn't take that private elevator. He insisted on going on the employee elevator. Every morning. Why as you said to me later because I wanted to hear what was going on here from the employee's you're from the officers, but I think it was more than that. I think it was because he wanted them to know he was part of the team. That was his approach everything. He did vintage George Bush. He did it with grace and dignity bringing people together and working in a bipartisan manner Stewart's really thought was right. But understood that other people had different points of view on respected that he carved out interesting role, vice president United States unprecedented in terms of his ability to work with the president work with the cabinet work with foreign leaders. Ronald Reagan was there, of course, during a time of intense international politics when the Cold War was coming to an end as President Bush said during President Reagan's funeral. He learned more from Ronald Reagan. Anyone he didn't it in all these years of public service, but he also served Ronald Reagan. Well. As president then George Bush was responsible for taking this end of the Cold War. And being sure that it worked. Well, not just for us. But for so many millions of people around the world, he let our country through some great change there. That's just the end of the Cold War. But the Berlin Wall came down. I was working for him at the time. And I remember the excitement about it in the sense that he should give a boastful speech and talk about how America had finally prevailed. He was hesitant to do that. He didn't want to spike the football in the end zone. Instead what he wanted to do was ensure that transition handled was handled properly. Three information of Germany was very controversial issue. He knew that it would be the interest of the world alternately to reunify east and west Germany, but he did it carefully diplomatically with.

"The clips like that. Make you understand some extent why people dislike Washington. You know, you don't. You don't need to reach very far for an explanation. There's a an inherent cynicism and life in political life. In particular, we all know that you don't have to pretend that everything is about the league of women voters and common cause and the Brookings Institution to say that politics is an imperfect business full of imperfect people, but at a certain level and in certain moments in the life of the Republic, the people who really do speak truth who really do damn the consequences in the short term are rewarded in in the long term because they did the right thing. And I think that Republicans and Democrats should be supportive of this investigation. There's clearly probable cause if not in the legal sense of that is certainly in the common sense of being of it to support this search for for truth. And with all respect. Mayor Giuliani there. There is an objective truth. There are objective things known such as facts, and you know, in the middle of the most important interview, arguably in human history between Jesus of Nazareth and podcast Bislett pilot says, what is truth as kind of cynical aside? Well, truth is what we can most consciously and most diligently come to, and there's a sign on the wall. We talk with the intelligence community. You know the line from the gospel of John is on the wall. The George Bush center for intelligence in Langley shall know the truth and the truth shell set you free. I think what a lot of people are fearing within the Trump circles is that if people know the truth, the truth will actually take them from freedom. And how remarkable it is that you have Mitch, those Mitch McConnell statements, and you can find other Republicans making similar statements in nineteen ninety eight and nineteen ninety nine being shocked and distressed. That Bill Clinton was engaging in moral relativism and even calling into question. The definition of the word is and there you have Mitch McConnell, of course, attacking the president's men and women for going after the independent counsel at the time. Well, Donald Trump himself, the president himself just tweeted while we were showing the clip of Mitch McConnell and attack on Robert Muller and attack on a marine and FBI director. A man who has his entire committed is entire life to service to the. The United States of America. There is certainly nothing disgrace discredited about Bob Muller and the majority of Americans agree. And as I said before. They're really there if the polls taken the were elections, Muller would be beating Donald Trump in a landslide by twenty points and just about every single category.
