January 29, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are four chapters.

January 29: Matthew 3, Exodus 10, Exodus 11, Exodus 12 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Matthew 3 presents John the Baptist, preaching repentance. He came to prepare the way of the Lord. Jesus came to be baptized by John. Afterwards the holy Spirit descended like a dove on Jesus and a voice from heaven said: “This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased”.

Exodus 10: More plagues, the plague of locusts and the plague of darkness. Now the LORD is hardening Pharaoh’s heart.

In Exodus 11 Moses and Aaron proclaim the tenth and final plague: The death of the firstborn. Interestingly enough the plagues of Egypt are also in the Quran, four are the same, five are different, and one is missing altogether. Guess which one!

Exodus 12 tells of how God instituted the Passover. The name comes from the action that night, that when the angel of death came to kill every firstborn in Egypt, if he sees the blood of the pascal lamb om the doorposts and the lentil of the house, he will pass over that house. The chapter is fantastic, read it and marvel!
