KNOX 500: day 10-11B, Bannockburn

700 years ago the Scots managed to defeat the far superior English army of wimp king Edward II
"Remember Bannockburn!"
In 1314 the battle commenced with single combat in which Robert the Bruce cleavered his English opponent with his battleaxe, a portent of the outcome of the entire battle
Simon Peter's brother Andrew, patron saint of medieval Scotland, crucified but not like his Lord
Full-Scottish breakfast minus the haggis and black pudding (beans a hold over from the rationing days of WW II)
It was fascinating to hear Judge Jim DeWeese give us the perspective of biblical jurisprudence on injustices in high places faced by Knox and his Covenanter offspring
