March 22, read through the Bible in a year.

It is Lent. Luke and Lent kind of go together;  only two chapters, enjoy!

March 22: Luke 1, Deuteronomy 23 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 1, to Theophilus. The birth of John the Baptist foretold to Zacharias by an Angel, then the angel Gabriel makes an announcement announcement to Mary, Mary meets Elizabeth, Zacharias’ wife. Luke 1 also contains  Mary’s song, Zacharias’ prophecy and the Birth of John the Baptist.

Deuteronomy 23 deals with shunning and exclusion from the assembly, how to deal or not to deal with certain foreigners. Make your relief stations outside the camp and do what you have to do and keep proper camping cleanliness. No harlots allowed  and do not accept offerings from them. You may not charge interest to a fellow Israelite, but you can be a Shylock to a foreigner. If you make a vow to the Lord fulfill it!

Deuteronomy 23, Shunning, Exclusion from the Assembly, Cleanliness, no Harlots, Pay your Vows to the Lord!
