Grab Bag, great man, great number of fish and great grandmothers?

Grab Bag Monday is here again!

Who was king David’s great grandmother?

Matthew 1:5-6
5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
6 And Jesse begat David the king
; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

Lets see what order they came in a more simple manner.

Boaz and Ruth

So David’s father was Jesse, his grandfather was Obed, his great grandfather and grandmother were Boaz and Ruth.

Ruth was his great grandmother. :)

How many fish did the disciples catch when the net was not broken?

John 21:11
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

They pulled 153 fish out of the water. There were so many, they had to pull the net onto the land. And of all of that, the net did not brake. :)

What defiles a man? -Olive

Matthew 15:11
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

And further explanation is here:

Matthew 15:18-20
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

So, it’s what comes out of the mouth which defiles a man. I feel like the scripture explains it clearly here: those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart. And I don’t know of any way else to word it.

Are there any specific scriptures anyone has and want to go over them? I am thinking about a new segment to put in the podcast. :)
