October 8, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read Paul’s short letter to  Philemon, one Psalm and one chapter of Jeremiah.

October 8: Philemon, Psalm 120 , Jeremiah 44 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Paul’s letter to Philemon is a letter from one person to another, and as such should not be for general consumption, and certainly not in the Holy Scriptures. But it is, and by divine inspiration it is a beautiful example of human redemption and how a former, thieving slave was given his freedom and welcomed into the fellowship of believers as a brother.

Psalm 120 is a song of accents, that means it was sung as the people went up to Jerusalem on their way to one of the Jewish festivals.

Jeremiah 44. Some Israelis escaped to Egypt.  Nothing good would come out of that. Read the horrible future that awaited them.
