January 12, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are three chapters.

January 12: John 11, Genesis 24, Genesis 25 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

John 11 starts out with Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead (on the fourth day no less). Then comes Caiaphas’ inadvertent prophecy “You know nothing at all!  You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.”

Genesis 24 tells the beautiful story of Isaac and Rebekah.

After Sarah’s death, In Genesis 25 Abraham marries his concubine Ketorah, who has already borne him six children. Before his death he sends them all away and gives everything to Isaac. Isaac and Ishmael buries Abraham, and then is Ihmael’s genealogy written down. Finally is the story of Jacob and Esau, and how Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of lentil stew and some bread.
