September 21, II Kings 9:1-13 Jehu the son of Nimshi

Actually Jehu was the grandson of Nimshi but in many places in the Jewish histories he's called the son. Curious that we know little about Nimshi, actualy all that we know is he was the father to Jehosaphat and grandfather to Jehu. Yet there must have been something significant about the man to be noted here and in other places. There are today a lot of people in history who are known simply by a single name, both fameous and infameous.  I get the feeling that Nimshi was a good guy, his name means rescuer.  Looking at the rest of the text, Israel has now been a seperate kingdom for about 100 years and all of the kings have been bad. Maybe Jehu will be different. Stay tuned.
