According to the song “The Gambler”, boredom overtook them. That’s the tragedy of many in this life. The rut they’re traveling in is so deep, they are stuck in it. It seems like there is nothing stimulating unless it is illegal or immoral.
Some choose a better course by traveling through the Word and meeting with Paul as he teaches about the Lord Jesus like these Jews did.
When they had appointed a day for him, they came to him at his lodging in greater numbers. From morning till evening, he expounded to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets.
It’s about Jesus. Give it some thought.
