January 12, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today there are three chapters.

January 12: John 11, Genesis 24, Genesis 25 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

John 11 describes how Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead (on the fourth day no less). The ruling Jews were worried that Jesus would become ruler and then the Romans would destroy their nation. This leads to Caiaphas’ inadvertent prophecy You know nothing at all!  You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.

Genesis 24 tells the beautiful story of Isaac and Rebekah.

After Sarah’s death, in Genesis 25 Abraham married his concubine Ketorah, who had already borne him six children. Before his death he sent them all away with ample gifts and provisions but his inheritance he gave to Isaac.  Isaac and Ishmael buried Abraham, and then Ishmael’s genealogy is written down. Finally is told the story of Jacob and Esau, and how Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of lentil stew and some bread.
