April 8, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are three chapters, finishing up Joshua.

April 8: Luke 18Joshua 23, Joshua 24 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 18 starts by Jesus telling the parable  of the persistent widow, meaning we should always pray, then he adds: “When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” After that he teaches humility with the parable of the pharisee and the tax collector, reinforced by Jesus blessing of little children. A rich young ruler wants to inherit eternal life but is not willing to pay the price to follow Jesus. With men it is impossible to have eternal life , but all things are possible with God. Then Jesus predicts His Death, and finally a blind beggar receives his sight.

Joshua 23 retells  Joshua’s farewell address.

Joshua 24. The Covenant is renewed at Shechem, at which time Joshua recants their history thus far, and then comes the death of Joshua, ans also the death of Eleazar, Aaron’s son.
