February 22: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

in Matthew 12:1-21 Jesus proclaimed he  is the Lord of the Sabbath and healed a man with a withered hand. Since this was on a Sabbath it was considered blasphemy. Jesus continued to heal all to fulfill the prophecy of the Prophet Isaiah.

After completing the book of Leviticus we take a one day break before we continue with Numbers and read

Ecclesiastes 5. Fear God, keep your vows. There is vanity in amassing riches, even vanity in seeking honor.

Ecclesiastes 6. Vanity is the theme, this time the vanity of desire.

Psalm 14 is short and to the point. It begins: “The fool has said in his heart, there is NO GOD.”

Psalm 15 is only 5 verses long but full of truth which carries on into the New Testament. For that reason there are five 5 references from the New Testament given.

Psalm 16, of David. A wonderful psalm of confidence in the LORD even in times of trouble. This is a prophetic psalm pointing to Jesus resurrection, it too is quoted in the New Testament.

August 3, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the first chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and three chapters of Ecclesiastes.

August 3: Ephesians 1, Ecclesiastes 6, Ecclesiastes 7, Ecclesiastes 8 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Ephesians 1. This letter is a wonderful explanation of the Christian Gospel. Paul started out with a greeting, then explained what it means to get redemption in Christ and ended up with a prayer for spiritual wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 6. Vanity is the theme, this time the vanity of desire.

Ecclesiastes 7. There is value in practical wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 8. Obey authorities for God’s Sake, and yes, this too is in Ecclesiastes: “Eat, drink and be merry.” It fits with the theme of vanity.
