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

Today’s chapter of Luke tells the first half of Jesus’ last day before his death. The chapter in Judges tells the rest of the story of Gideon, the part never preached. Read it as history.

April 12: Luke 22Judges 8 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 22. Judas agreed to betray Jesus, it was Passover so Jesus commemorated   the Last Supper with his disciples, after which they went to the garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed. While they were there Jesus was betrayed, arrested and taken to the house of the high priest. Waiting outside, Peter disowns Jesus three times before the cock crowd. Jesus was interrogated during the night and before daybreak the Sanhedrin had heard enough, and were ready to sentence him to death, but only the Romans had the right to execute the sentence.

Judges 8.  Gideon Defeated the Midianites,  the story is getting complicated but read it anyway. After the great victory Gideon made an Ephod from the Ishmaelites’ golden earrings and this became a snare to them all. Finally Gideon died and immediately after the Israelites fell back into idolatry, worshiping Baal.
