May 6, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Todsy we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles and two chapters in 2 Samuel.

May 6: Acts 17, 2 Samuel 8, 2 Samuel 9 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Acts 17. Paul and Silas arrived in Thessalonica, preached in the Synagogue, many people were converted, the Jews didn’t like it and a crowd attacked Jason’s home. But in Berea they were welcomed: These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” The net result though was similar to what happened in Thessalonica, so Paul was escorted to Athens. Waiting for Timothy and Silas to arrive Paul reasoned with the Greeks about Jesus and the resurrection. Being Greeks they thought the resurrection was the female counterpart to Jesus, so they took him to Areopagus, where Paul gave his famous “Athens discourse”. Read it and ponder.

In 2 Samuel 8 is recorded of how David’s Kingdom expanded. The chapter also lists David’s Officials.

2 Samuel 9. Saul’s remaining son, Mephibosheth was paralyzed in both feet. David showed kindness and invited him to be part of David’s household.
