Playing for the "Gods,"
Goddess of war.And for the "Mortals,"
A behemoth of the battle field.
Straight from Zeus's head.
It's. . . ATHENA!
He's clever.And in the play-by-play of the game the announcer says,
He's just AAAA-MAZING!
It's . . . THESEUS!
The Gods [team] are just taking the game away from the Mortals.
Zeus pulls Hades out and brings in the mighty Atlas.
He's just standing there holding the ball. It looks like the Gods are going to let the clock run down to halftime.
In our Tapestry of Grace Year One studies, we are now learning about the Babylonian Empire, Jerusalem's fall, the Babylonian captivity, the prophet Daniel, and the city of Babylon (Ishtar Gate, Hanging Gardens, etc.). We studied early Greek history last semester and covered the Trojan War and Greek mythology during that study. We are about to re-visit the Greeks, this time later in history as we cover the Greek and Persian war, Greek theater, science, and philosophy achievements.
