652: The Betrayal of Wulfhere // Spiritual Lessons from Alfred the Great 08 (Eric Ludy)
This is the eighth episode in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series drawing on the legendary life of Alfred the Great. In this particular episode he examines the significance of covenantal pledges in the ninth century and how that played a prominent role in the storyline of Alfred. The seemingly inordinate value place upon the ideal of integrity in the Kingdom of Wessex is a beautiful and striking parallel to the much greater Kingdom of Christ and the weight He Himself places on integrity in His system of government. The betrayal of Wulfhere is a shocking demonstration of the fact that colossal compromise is a close companion to all who consider their own comforts higher than the preservation of their king.
