Derek Jeter Retires

Let me start by saying that I despise the New York Yankees. On principle, I loathe teams that try to buy (or succeed at buying) championships.

Today, we’re looking at chapter 3 titled a jealous god. That sounds odd doesn’t it? The One True God jealous? That doesn’t seem like a character trait most people would associate with a loving, benevolent God, does it? Well, on the surface, that seems reasonable to think. However, when we look deeper at what it means to be jealous, we start to understand.
