April 27, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read two chapters in the Acts of the Apostles and two chapters in 1 Samuel.

April 27: Acts 8, 1 Samuel 16, 1 Samuel 17 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Acts 8. Saul persecuted the Church, it was so  severe that the believers scattered all over the nations. Thanks to the persecution the Gospel reached Samaria where Philip met Simon the Sorcerer who came to believe, but he still thought the Holy Spirit could be purchased with money! Finally Philip met the Ethiopian eunuch. Thanks to God’s word in the scroll of Isaiah, he too came to believe and was baptized.

1 Samuel 16, Samuel anointed David as King after rejecting all of David’s older brothers and David entered into Saul’s service while Saul was still the titular King. Whenever Saul’s spirit troubled him David played for him and that soothed Saul.

1 Samuel 17 tells the story of David and Goliath. Just read it, it is great reading.
