March 8, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are five chapters to read.

March 8: Mark 8, Numbers 33, Numbers 34, Numbers 35, Numbers 36, (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Mark 8 begins with Jesus feeding the four thousand, the Pharisees are still looking for a sign, but Jesus warns of the yeast of the Pharisees and Herod, all very confusing for the disciples; they are still not thinking in the spiritual realm. Jesus heals a blind man at Bethsaida, then follows Peter’s Confession and  Jesus predicts his death.

Numbers 33 is a reciting of Israel’s Journey from Egypt, and provides instructions on how to conquer Canaan.

Numbers 34 defines the Boundaries of Canaan and mentions all the leaders appointed to divide the land.

Numbers 35 names the Cities for the Levites and defines the six Cities of Refuge.

Numbers 36 tells about the Inheritance of Zelophehad’s Daughters and why the Israelite women must marry within their tribe.
