July 5, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the second chapter of the Apostle Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians and finish up Ezra.

July 5: 2 Corinthians 2, Ezra 8, Ezra 9, Ezra 10 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

2 Corinthians 2. The Apostle Paul sent a very loving and  encouraging letter to the Corinthians. In it he emphasized they should be no more Sorrowful, forgive the offender and triumph in Christ.

Ezra 8 starts with a list of the heads of families who returned with Ezra. Ezra separated twelve priests to be temple servants and led in fasting and prayer for protection.  The people came with gifts for the temple as they returned to Jerusalem.

Ezra 9. Ezra prayed about Intermarriage with pagans and called it a sin according to the Law.

Ezra 10. The returning exiles made confession of improper marriages, and their pagan wives were put away.
