Day 133 of reading the Holy Bible in 365 days.

Luke 11:29-54.. When the Jews asked for a sign Jesus answered “There shall be no sign except the Sign of Jonah,” He also proclaimed: “Your eye is the Lamp of the Body, let it shine.” Finally, Jesus proclaimed six woes. This displeased both the Pharisees and the experts in the Law.

1 Kings 1. Adonijah, the heir apparent since his older brothers were all dead, set himself up as king before David’s death. David had Zadok the Priest and Nathan the Prophet proclaim Solomon King instead.

1 Kings 2. David gave his final instructions to Solomon, to which persons he should show kindness and to whom he should not, and then David died. Solomon had Adonijah executed exiled Abathar, executed Joab and Shimel, and showed kindness to the ones that had helped David. The kingdom was then firmly in Solomon’s hands.
