May 4, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles and three  chapters in 2 Samuel.

May 4: Acts 15, 2 Samuel 3, 2 Samuel 4, 2 Samuel 5 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Acts 15. There was much ado about circumcision, and the believers decided to decide the issue at the Council at Jerusalem, which led to  the Jerusalem decree, (in short: Abstain from fornication and from blood). Barnabas and Paul argued about Mark, so they split up, and Paul took Silas and embarked on the second missionary journey.

2 Samuel 3 starts out with a genealogy of David’s sons. Then Abner joined forces with David, Joab murdered Abner, and finally it records how David mourned Abner.

2 Samuel 4 records how Saul’s son Ishbosheth was murdered.

2 Samuel 5. David consolidated power and reigned over all Israel and captured Jerusalem. After Jerusalem was established as the City of David the Philistines were defeated.
