March 3, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are three chapters to read.

March 3: Mark 3Numbers 21 ,  Numbers 22, (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Again, in Mark 3 Jesus heals on a Sabbath, this time a man with a withered hand. The powers to be hate it, but more and more people follow him. Jesus appoints the 12 apostles, and begin teaching in parables. One warning: All sins can be forgiven except blasphemy against the holy spirit. Jesus mother and brothers try to meet him, but Jesus reminds all “Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother”.

In Numbers 21 the Canaanites are defeated in Hormath. The people keep speaking against God, so God sends venomous snakes and many died. Moses makes a bronze snake, puts it on a pole and the people looking at it got healed. (Does that remind you of a symbol used even today?) The travels continue.

Numbers 22 tells the story of how Balak sends for Balaam, and how Balaam’s Donkey behaved when he saw the Angel.
