June 5, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we are continuing in Romans, and read the last four chapters in 2 Kings.

June 5: Romans 14, 2 Kings 22, 2 Kings 23, 2 Kings 24, 2 Kings 25 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Romans 14. Some are weak in faith and those who are strong and can eat everything should not look down on vegetarians and vegans. Some observe the Lord’s day on the first day of the week, others still say “Sabbath is Sabbath.” Tolerate each other according too the law of liberty, for whatever is not of faith is sin, and it is not for you to judge. The law of love tells us not to flaunt one’s free drinking in front of an alcoholic among other things, for that could cause him to stumble.

2 Kings 22, Josiah is king of Judah and Hilkiah the priest finds the book of the law. The reading of the law pricked their conscience.

2 Kings 23. Having repented Josiah restored the worship and even tore down the quarters of the male shrine prostitutes and ended idol worship,but alas, too late. There still came impending judgment on Judah, Josiah died in battle at Megiddo. After that came the reign and captivity of Jehoahaz, after which Jehoiakim became king of Judah.

2 Kings 24. Things go from bad to worse, Judah was overrun by enemies,  Jehoiachin becomes king of Judah and is taken captive, Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem and made Zedekiah nominal king of Judah.

2 Kings 25. Then came the fall and captivity of Judah.  Gedaliah was made Governor of Judah and Jehoiakin was released from prison. Thus ends 2 Kings.

  1. “And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.”

    “You are not to eat any creature that moves about on the ground, whether it moves on its belly or walks on all fours or on many feet; it is detestable.”

    “I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves about on the ground.”

    Sounds like the authors of that book liked to contradict each other.

    1. Yes, Amanda, that is the beauty of the Christian gospel. We are in Christ, a new creation, no longer under the Law of sin and death. We can eat anything (except blood), including bacon and lobster, but for those that believe in kosher food that is still o.k. for them to limit themselves. Just remember, following the Law does not lead to salvation, only in Christ is salvation.
