March 14: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

In Matthew 22:1-33 Jesus continued to talk in parables. He was in Jerusalem, teaching about the Kingdom of Heaven and told the parable of the wedding banquet, from which we have the expression “many are called but few are chosen.” Continuing on, the Pharisees tried to entrap him with the question “is it legal to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” Jesus answered by the famous quote: “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s,” an early call to separation of Church and State. Jesus did not say “let the Romans do it”. The Sadducees also tried to entrap him with the riddle “if there is no resurrection and seven brothers have had a woman as his wife on after another, who would marry her in the resurrection?” Jesus answered with another, now made famous, saying: “God is not the God of the dead but of the living.”

Deuteronomy 7 promised that the Israelites were always a Chosen People. God will drive out the people before them. When entering the land they must completely destroy all idols and false gods.

Deuteronomy 8. Remember the LORD your God but if not, you too will be destroyed.

The chapter for today out of the gospel of Mark deals with eating, praying, betrayal and denial – and don’t forget the rooster! The two chapters in Deuteronomy  deal with promises and warnings.

Mark 14 starts out in Bethany, where Jesus was anointed. The next day Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper and predicted Peter’s denial. After Judas Iscariot left the eleven remaining disciples and Jesus went to the Mount of Olives where there is a garden called Gethsemane. While there Jesus Prayed intensely. Judas Iscariot reappeared and betrayed Jesus with a kiss. The accompanying soldiers arrested Jesus, and he was brought before the Sanhedrin. Peter was waiting outside and denied Jesus three times, after which the cock crowed twice.
