June 1, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we are continuing in Romans, and read three chapters in 2 Kings.

June 1: Romans 10, 2 Kings 12, 2 Kings 13, 2 Kings 14 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 10. Israel too needs the Gospel, “ if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” It is true, in the Gospel “there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek,” but Israel rejects the Gospel.

2 Kings 12, the Temple had fallen in disrepair, so Jehoash repaired the Temple. Hazael, king of Aram threatened Jerusalem but withdrew after Joash paid the ransom. After forty years reign Joash died and was succeeded by Amaziah.

2 Kings 13. One more history chapter. Jehoahaz Reigned in Judah, Jehoash Reigned in Israel, Elisha died and Israel Recaptured some cities from Syria.

2 Kings 14, Amaziah firmly ruled in Judah,  but he followed the law of Moses: “every man shall be put to death for his own sin.” After a victory over the Edomites he became proud and tried to conquer Israel. This failed completely, and instead Israel broke down part of the wall of Jerusalem and raided the Temple. Finally,  Jeroboam II became king of Israel, died and his son Zechariah succeeded him.
