April 2: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Mark4:21-41. Jesus spoke in parables He told the parable of the lamp on a stand, not under a bushel, and the parable of the seed in the ground, followed by the parable of the faith of a mustard seed, all parables relating to the Kingdom of God. Finally Jesus calmed the storm while in a boat on lake Genesareth, and chastised the disciples for their lack of faith.

Joshua 14 describes the land west of the Jordan river, and that Caleb, still in his strength at the age of 85 wanted to inherit the hilly land of Hebron.

Joshua 15 defines geographical borders: The land of Judah, Caleb occupies Hebron and Debir and a listing of the cities of Judah.

Joshua 16 describes the land that belongs to the half tribe of Manasseh, west of Jordan, and also the land of Ephraim.

Psalm 28, of David. As so often with David, he began with a petition, asking for deliverance, then turned to praise.

Psalm 29, of David. A song of praise. This Psalm gives us a vivid description of a storm, and how the voice of God speaks through it.

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

Today we will read five chapters, the one chapter in Luke is important, but there is not one New Testament comment mentioned about the four chapters of Joshua, not even about Caleb! Read them as history and Geography and enjoy!

Luke 14, again on the Sabbath, at a Pharisee’s house no less,  Jesus healed a man with dropsy. Noticing how the people competed for the best places Jesus spoke of the lowly place to be sought rather than the place of honor. Then he gave us the parable of the Great Supper and the cost of following Christ. Finally he mentioned the value of good salt and the worthlessness of salt that lost its savor.

Joshua 11 tells of the Northern Conquest and gives a summary of all the conquests.

Joshua 12 sums up the Kings conquered by Moses and the Kings conquered by Joshua.

Joshua 13 describes the land to be conquered; the land divided East of Jordan: The land of Reuben, the land of Gad and the land of Manasseh East of Jordan.

Joshua 14 describes the land Divided West of Jordan and that Caleb, still in his strength at the age of 85 wanted and inherited the hilly land of Hebron.
