Advent 2011: Day 23

The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the ovedience of the nations shall be his.

DAY 23: Shiloh (Genesis 49:10) 

Read and Discuss. This is part of the prophecy/blessing of Jacob to his son, Judah. What does Shiloh mean? (to rest) Why is this a good name for Jesus. Read the verse: "come to me ye who are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) 

History: Discuss the history of Shiloh in the U.S. It is known as a Civil War battlefield where 25,000 men lost their lives. These events are far-removed from the true meaning of Shiloh. 

Language Arts: Discuss the literary term "irony". It is irony that the Civil War was fought in a place called "rest." 

Illustrate your idea of "shiloh" Put the illustrations in your journal.
