So they proposed two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. Then they prayed, “Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.” Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.
This bit from the reading today about replacing Judas got me thinking about casting lots. What’s up with that whole thing? I put some thought into this back in Jonah. You can check it out here.
