Sons of Thunder
Doesn’t that sound like a wrestling team? “Uh, the sons of Thunder are tagging in…” and these two guys are dropping their robes, pulling up their wrestling straps and climbing over the ropes. That image keeps running through my mind while I’m reading who Jesus had chosen as his 12 disciples:
“James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder.”Mark 3:17
How RAD is that? Apparently, that describes the conduct of James and John. Yeah, we’re trouble, Jesus said so, and we’re gonna BRING THE THUNDER. (grrrr! And flexing of muscles) And, of course, the music playing in the background as they enter the ring.
