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