April 9, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are three chapters to read, Joshua is finished, starting with Judges.

April 9: Luke 19, Judges 1, Judges 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 19 starts with the story of Zacchaeus, then comes the parable of the minas. One take home from that parable is: “Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds. (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)” Then comes what is called “Holy Week” starting with the triumphal entry. Seeing Jerusalem, Jesus weeps over it and after entering Jesus cleanses the Temple.

Judges 1 describes the continuing conquest of Canaan, and the Israelites’ incomplete conquest of the land.

In Judges 2 God decries Israel’s disobedience, records the death of Joshua, and chronicles Israel’s unfaithfulness and sin.
