March 12, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are only 2 chapters to read.

March 12: Mark 12, Deuteronomy 5 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Mark 12 begins with the parable of the unfaithful tenants, then the Pharisees try to entrap Jesus with the question “Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar? You know the answer. Then it is the Sadducees turn to entrap him with what happens to  marriage at the Resurrection. Then Jesus answers what is the Greatest Commandment, and answers the riddle “whose son is the Christ?” Finally, looking at temple offerings Jesus notices the widow’s two Mites.

In Deuteronomy 5 the Ten Commandments are enumerated a second time, the first time was in Exodus 20. The people are afraid of God’s presence, but not in reverential fear.
