April 7: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Mark 7:24-37. Jesus went to the region of Tyre and Sidon and gave an  example of Great Faith: The Canaanite woman, and the healing of her daughter.  Then Jesus healed a deaf-mute man, and the people said: “He has done everything well.”

Judges 1 describes the continuing conquest of Canaan, and the Israelites’ incomplete conquest of the land.

In Judges 2 God decried Israel’s disobedience, the author recorded the death of Joshua, and chronicled Israel’s unfaithfulness and sin.

Judges 3. The cycle of straying from the LORD and coming back to Him began for the nations remaining in the land. Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD and He raised up Judges: Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, and during their time there was peace in the land for 40, then 80 years.

April 5: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Mark 6:14-56. John the Baptist was beheaded. By the way – the name Salome is not in the Bible, only as Herodias’ daughter, we know it because beheading fascinates many. The Salome in the Bible was one of the three that came to the empty grave to anoint Jesus’ body. Then is retold the feeding of the Five Thousand, and after that Jesus walked on the water.

In Joshua 23 Joshua gave his farewell address.

Joshua 24. The Covenant was renewed at Shechem, at which time Joshua retold their history thus far, followed by the death of Joshua, and also the death of Eleazar, Aaron’s son.
