The only way to unite God's people

Only just starting to get into Peter Leithart. An great example of his insightful short posts is his recent one on the attempts of various Israelite Kings to unite the nation following the division after Solomon. Many of these are by force, but every one ultimately fails. In conclusion Leithart states:

The only effective union for Israel and Judah was their union in exile. They are tied back together in a single nation only by being united in the grave (1 Kings 13).

You can just taste the NT fulfillment!

A lot of his posts are (like this one) on Kings, and I am left looking forward to his forthcoming commentary in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible on the book.
